Benefits Of Activity

Benefits of activity - Nordic Walking
Nordic Walking

I received some interesting statistics from health bosses today. They seem to confirm all that we suspect about the benefits of active lifestyles.

People who regularly exercise have been shown to reduce their risk of the following by these percentages :

Death : 30%
Heart Disease & Stroke : 35%
Type 2 diabetes : 50%
Breast Cancer : 20%
Depression : 30%
Dementia : 30%
Falls (Older adults) 30%

Imagine that a company had invented a new type of drug that achieved all of that!
