Running, even just a little, can have a profound impact on your life and death as the case may be.
Researchers studied over 232,000 people for between 5 to 35 years. They looked at the health implications of running, or even just occasional jogging. Those who even just occasionally jogged, let alone had a solid routine, had a 30% lower risk of cardiovascular disease and a 23% lower chance of dying from cancer.
The study published in the British Journal of Sports medicineconcluded that running or jogging just once a week for less than an hour will have at least the health benefit identified. Given that heart disease and cancer are the two biggest causes of death for men. That’s some motivation to do a little running for your life.
