A Jog a Day Keeps Heart Disease and Death Away

Jogging or running, even if only for 5-10 minutes, greatly reduces the risk for heart disease and death, Reuters article reports. A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology observed medical records of adults between the ages of 18 and 100 over a 15-year period, noting that people who ran were 30 percent less likely to die during this span as compared with non-runners, and 45 percent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, the decreased risk was still applicable to those who ran just 30 to 60 minutes per week, and for those who ran at a pace less than six miles per hour.
