Did you know...
Nowadays it is well known that physical activity is a lot of good for your body and your health.
This is further supported by an Australian study which was developed by George Institute for Global Health and the Menzies Research Insitute in Tasmania where it is stated that there is a close correlation between human longevity and how much you walk in everyday life.
In this study published in Plos One 3000 people with an avarage age of 59 years were examinated for 15 years thanks to the pedometer, a device furnished to each partecipant and which permitted to calculate the step numbers done eveyday. The results underlined that who increased the steps from 1000 to 10000 daily, had a reduced mortality risk of 46% and who increased steps up to 3000 had a mortality risk reduced of 12%.
Another important result of the study is that the correlation between the step number and mortality results as indipendent from other factors as smoking and body mass index.
"You can therefore affirm that the daily step number is inversely correlated to all cause mortality" says the study's author Terry Dwyer.
