Moderate physical activity could prevent one in 12 deaths globally

September 22, 2017

Physical activity of any form — whether a gym workout, walking to work or doing household chores — for 150 minutes per week reduces the risk for mortality and CVD, according to findings published in the Lancet.

Lear, PhD, from Simon Fraser University and St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, Canada, and colleagues wrote.
