Walking Faster May Help You Live Longer, a Big Study Says
According to a new study, executed by an international team of scientists from the University of Sydney in Australia, the University of Limerick in Ireland, and the Universities of the Cambridge, Edinburgh, and Ulster, UK, those people who walk fast may have higher chances to live longer.
For the research, the scientists analyzed 11 population-based surveys conducted in the United Kingdom between 1994 and 2008 from 50,552 walkers. The analysis showed that an average walking pace was associated with a 20% lower risk of death from all causes while walking fast, about 5–7 km per hour, was linked to 24% lower risk.
Lead researchers Prof. Emmanuel Stamatakis says: “Especially in situations when walking more isn't possible due to time pressures or a less walking-friendly environment, walking faster may be a good option to get the heart rate up — one that most people can easily incorporate into their lives.”
