Walking in the Park for Half an Hour May Prevent Heart Attacks
According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Scientific Reports, regular walking in the parks can reduce the risk of high blood pressure which is the major cause of heart disease and stroke. Regular strolls may also boost mental health.
For the research, the scientists looked at 1,538 residents of Brisbane and compared cases of depression and high blood pressure with the self-reported number of days in which physical exercise happened for more than 30 minutes during a week.
“If everyone visited their local parks for half an hour each week there would be 7% fewer cases of depression and 9% fewer cases of high blood pressure,” said Dr. Danielle Shanahan from the University of Queensland in Australia.
