Run the extra mile

Researchers at Stanford University in California found from a nationwide survey on running club that exercise extending to 200 minutes a week showed significant health benefits as compared to the average 20 minutes a week of an average person.

Middle-aged members of a runner’s club were half as likely to die over a 20-year period as people who did not run.

Running reduced the risk not only of heart disease, but of cancer and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
