Brisk Walk and Heart Risk

Brisk Walk and Heart Risk featured image

Here’s more evidence on how a little bit of exercise can do a lot of good! It’s from research presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress and it’s a startling way of quantifying the benefit. The finding shows that just 25 minutes of brisk walking a day could add up to seven years to a person’s life,

The German study put men and women aged between 30 and 60 who had not been regular exercisers on a daily fitness program.

The study then tracked key markers of ageing in the blood. Within six months, these showed changes which helped the body to repair DNA. These changes suggest that regular exercise can delay the ageing process, and effectively halve the risk of heart attack death among those in their 50s and 60s.

Cardiologists at the conference also said it was never too late to start exercising.
