20-minute daily walk cuts early death risk

Thu, Jan 15, 2015, 12:15 PM
London, Jan 15: A brisk 20-minute walk each day is enough to reduce an individual's risk of early death, say British researchers.

After analysing over 334,000 European men and women, they also found that twice as many deaths may be attributable to lack of physical activity compared with the number of deaths attributable to obesity.

"We found that just 20 minutes would make a difference. Physical activity has many proven health benefits and should be an important part of our daily life," said professor Ulf Ekelund from the Medical Research Council (MRC) epidemiology unit at University of Cambridge.

For this, researchers analysed data across Europe participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Study.

The results were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
