Physical activity significantly reduces all-cause and cause-specific mortality

24 Jul 2020Registered users

Following recommendations for both aerobic and muscle strengthening activity can reduce all-cause mortality by up to 40%, a study of nearly half a million adults in the United States has shown. Individuals who met the target for aerobic activity only also had a significant reduction in all-cause mortality risk of 29% and those who participated in just muscle strengthening exercise at recommended levels had a reduction in risk of 11%.
