A brisk 20 minute walk each day could be enough to reduce an individuals
risk of early death, according to new research published today. The study
of over 334,000 European men and women found that twice as many deaths may
be attributable to lack of physical activity compared with the number of
deaths attributable to obesity, but that just a modest increase in
physical activity could have significant health benefits.

This is a simple message: just a small amount of physical activity
each day could have substantial health benefits for people who are
physically inactive

Physical inactivity has been consistently associated with an increased
risk of early death, as well as being associated with a greater risk of
diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Although it may also contribute
to an increased body mass index (BMI) and obesity, the association with
early death is independent of an individuals BMI.

.

To measure the link between physical inactivity and premature death, and
its interaction with obesity, researchers analysed data from 334,161 men
and women across Europe participating in the European Prospective
Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Study. Between 1992 and
2000, the researchers measured height, weight and waist circumference, and
used self-assessment to measure levels of physical activity. The
participants were then followed up over 12 years, during which 21,438
participants died. The results are published today in the American Journal
of Clinical Exercise.

.

The researchers found that the greatest reduction in risk of premature
death occurred in the comparison between inactive and moderately inactive
groups, judged by combining activity at work with recreational activity;
just under a quarter (22.7%) of participants were categorised as inactive,
reporting no recreational activity in combination with a sedentary
occupation. The authors estimate that doing exercise equivalent to just a
20 minute brisk walk each day  burning between 90 and 110 kcal (calories)
would take an individual from the inactive to moderately inactive group
and reduce their risk of premature death by between 16-30%. The impact was
greatest amongst normal weight individuals, but even those with higher BMI
saw a benefit.

.

Using the most recent available data on deaths in Europe the researchers
estimate that 337,000 of the 9.2 million deaths amongst European men and
women were attributable to obesity (classed as a BMI greater than 30):
however, double this number of deaths (676,000) could be attributed to
physical inactivity.
