Daily Running Exercise Reduce Death Rate Post Posted: Tue Jul 29, 2014 11:11 am

A new study has suggested that running daily for a few minutes can significantly reduce a person's risk of dying from cardiovascular diseases.

According to study's lead author Duck-chul Lee, assistant professor of the Iowa State University, US, 'since time is one of the strongest barriers to participate in physical activity, the study may motivate more people to start running and continue to run as an attainable health goal for mortality benefits'.

Researchers studied among 55,137 adults, aged between 18 and 100, for 15 years to determine whether there was a relationship between running and longevity.

Research showed that, how participants who ran less than 51 minutes, fewer than 6 miles (about 9.6 km), slower than 6 miles per hour, or only one to two times per week had a lower risk of dying compared to those who did not run.

Among the 55,137 people 3,413 participants died during the study period and 1,217 died because of cardiovascular disease. Of this population, 24 % of the participants reported running as part of their leisure-time exercise.

Moreover, the researchers found that runners who ran less than an hour per week have the same mortality benefits compared to runners who ran more than three hours per week. Thus, it is possible that the more may not be the better as far as running and longevity as concerned.

They found that those who persistently ran over a period of six years on average had the most significant benefits, with a 29 % lower risk of death for any reason and 50 % lower risk of death from heart disease or stroke.

Researchers said, "Promoting running is as important as preventing smoking, obesity or hypertension. The benefits were the same no matter how long, far, frequently or fast participants reported running. Benefits were also the same regardless of sex, age, body mass index, health conditions, smoking status or alcohol use."

On an average, runners lived three years longer compared to non- runners.
