3-4 times a week I take the dog for a walk of an hour or more.

You still doing sprinting, Sprinty? Keep it up, life enhancing.

They find too that walking is good for your brain, wards off dementia!

In the broader of the two studies, researchers with the National Cancer Institute, Harvard University and other institutions gathered and pooled data about people’s exercise habits from six large, ongoing health surveys, winding up with information about more than 661,000 adults, most of them middle-aged.

Using this data, the researchers stratified the adults by their weekly exercise time, from those who did not exercise at all to those who worked out for 10 times the current recommendations or more (meaning that they exercised moderately for 25 hours per week or more).

Then they compared 14 years’ worth of death records for the group.

They found that, unsurprisingly, the people who did not exercise at all were at the highest risk of early death.

But those who exercised a little, not meeting the recommendations but doing something, lowered their risk of premature death by 20 percent.

Those who met the guidelines precisely, completing 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise, enjoyed greater longevity benefits and 31 percent less risk of dying during the 14-year period compared with those who never exercised.

The sweet spot for exercise benefits, however, came among those who tripled the recommended level of exercise, working out moderately, mostly by walking, for 450 minutes per week, or a little more than an hour per day. Those people were 39 percent less likely to die prematurely than people who never exercised.

At that point, the benefits plateaued, the researchers found, but they never significantly declined. Those few individuals engaging in 10 times or more the recommended exercise dose gained about the same reduction in mortality risk as people who simply met the guidelines.

So, sitting 18 hours a day behind a keyboard is not life enhancing, especially when your diet is TV dinners and pizza. I *did* tell IQ I would outlive him :roll :bgrin Proof positive now :jump



Interesting thanks.
is this a daily 'activity'' ?

And he's lucky they take orders over the internet - they don't serve cretinous dickheads in their stores :jump Shouldn't really joke about it but I reckon he's the type to run off, join Islamic State and blow himself up (though he'd probably phuk that up as well)

Be fair on IQ, it's not like he had a choice to do anything but sit by himself in front of a keyboard all day every day - the world has rejected him :bgrin

Can't imagine why :roll
