Quantifying exercise

Researchers have made an incredible discovery about the effects of exercise.

Researchers from Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute have quantified how many years of life are to be gained by being physically active. For those that did the equivalent of 150-299 minutes of brisk walking each week, the gain in life expectancy was 3.4 years. In the study, physical activity was associated with greater longevity among those in all BMI groups – normal weight, overweight and obese.
