EXERCISE INCREASES LIFESPAN, REGARDLESS OF PAST ACTIVITY LEVELS!
Alexander Mok, a doctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, led this research study, which appears in the journal 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝘽𝙈𝙅.
As Mok and colleagues explain in their paper, while numerous studies have already addressed the links between physical activity and mortality risk, fewer have focused on how exercise levels fluctuate over time and how these changes may affect longevity.
So, the scientists set out to remedy this research gap by conducting a large "population-based cohort study," which included data on almost 15,000 people.
Specifically, looking at physical activity energy expenditure, the analysis revealed that with each physical activity increase of 1 kilojoule/kilogram/day (kJ/kg/day) per year, the risk of premature mortality from any cause dropped by 24%.
The same modest increase in exercise correlated with a 29% lower risk of cardiovascular death and an 11% lower risk of dying from any form of cancer.
In layman’s terms, an increase of 1 kJ/kg/day per year is the equivalent of not being physically active at all at the start of the study and gradually becoming more active over a 5-year period, to the point of meeting the minimum physical activity guidelines issued by the government.
The United States Department of Health and Human Services recommend that adults engage in "at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) to 300 minutes (5 hours) a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) to 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity."

Even if you’ve been living a sedentary lifestyle it’s never too late to lengthen your life and improve your health through physical activity.
Aim to get at least the minimum physical activity recommended by US Health and Human Services which is 2 hours, 30 minutes of moderate exercise weekly or 1 hour, 15 minutes of high intensity exercise weekly. Statistically speaking, you’ll be greatly increasing your odds of living longer, cancer free, and heart healthy.
