One Brisk Walk Once a Week May Cut the Risk of Early Death by 70%
A new study from Harvard University discovered that one brisk walk at least once a week can reduce a senior women’s risk of early death by 70%.
For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from more than 17,000 women aged over 70. The analysis showed that more moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity – such as brisk walking – associated with around 60–70% lower risk of death at the end of the study.
The first author of the study Prof. I-Min Lee from Harvard University’s medical and public health schools in the US says: “We hope to continue this study in the future to examine other health outcomes, and particularly to investigate the details of how much and what kinds of activity are healthful.”
