In the framework of large-scale scientific study, the researchers followed 130 thousand volunteers from 17 countries. First, study participants were asked how much time they give to sport throughout the week. After this, the researchers within seven years of watching the health of the volunteers, analyzing morbidity and mortality.
It turned out that the people who pay fast walking at least 2.5 hours per week, the risk of premature mortality is reduced by 28%. If the person is actively moving 12.5 hours per week, the probability of death decreases by 36%.
As scholars have noted, it is not necessary to run, visit the gym or swim in the pool. To reduce the risk of mortality, it is enough to go to work on foot or to walk in the evenings. If all people follow these advices, then every seven years can reduce the mortality rate by 8%.
