Last week, a research published by British Journal of Sports Medicine discovered that running can reduce the risk of early death regardless of how long or at what speed you run. The research focused on 14 previous studies based on six different groups of participants, for a total of over 230,000 people for a period between 5.5 and 35 years. The authors reported that any amount of travel, even just once a week, is better than not running at all.
Swimmers found a 28% lower risk of early death and a lower risk of death of 41% due to stroke or heart disease, according to a 2017 study Swimming in England. Over 80,000 people participated. The report also states that swimming is a cheap, safe and viable exercise for people of all ages, helps older people stay mentally and physically fit and can help children develop physical, cognitive and social skills through lessons I swim.
Scientists who have tried to find the health benefits of different sports have found that regular tennis and badminton sessions reduce the risk of death at a given age of 47%. The study, published by British Journal of Sports Medicine, collected responses from over 80,000 adults aged 30 or over, through surveys conducted between 1994 and 2008.
In addition to improving strength, breathing and flexibility, yoga has been shown to reduce risk factors for heart disease, such as high body mass index, cholesterol and blood pressure. A study of the American College of Cardiology discovered that people who combine the practice of yoga and aerobic exercise, such as running or swimming, have seen their reductions in BMI, cholesterol levels and blood pressure double in comparison to people who were taking part only one or the other exercise.
