Jogging Can Add 6 Years to Your Life

In a recent, long-term Danish study, researchers found that those who jogged regularly had an average increased longevity of six years (6.2 years for men, and 5.6 years for women).

Peter Schnohr, chief cardiologist of the long-term Copenhagen City Heart Study, said in a news release from the European Society of Cardiology. “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.” Just one to two and a half hours of jogging weekly provided the benefits needed to increase life span and also reap other healthy rewards.
