5-5-2012Joggers Live Longer, Study Says
Jogging regularly could add about six years to your life, a new Danish study suggests.
"We can say with certainty that regular jogging increases longevity. The good news is that you don't actually need to do that much to reap the benefits."
The researchers found that male joggers can extend their life by 6.2 years, and women by 5.6 years.
Jogging at a slow pace for one to two and a half hours weekly provided the most significant benefits.
The researchers added that jogging also helps lower blood pressure, reduce platelet aggregation and prevent obesity.
