That’s according to a recent study carried out by Cambridge University. They found that just 75 minutes of moderate exercise a week can substantially cut the risk of early deaths. The NHS currently recommends aiming for double that, a total of 150 minutes of brisk walking, dancing, riding a bike, playing tennis or walking per week. For those that find it difficult to fit in that amount, this study is encouraging. In any case it is better to do some exercise rather than none at all. Researchers involved in the study suggested walking or cycling to work or school could be a good starting point for those trying to up their exercise. (article from the Guardian Newspaper).
