Move, Move & Move: Non-recreational physical activity also reduces CVD and mortality risk
Dr KK Aggarwal
The Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) study has shown that any kind of physical activity lowers the risk of heart disease and death.
The prospective cohort study led by the Population Health Research Institute of McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences recruited more than 130,000 subjects from 17 countries - Canada, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Poland, Turkey, Malaysia, South Africa, China, Colombia, Iran, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Zimbabwe, including India.
The PURE study, published September 22, 2017 in The Lancet, not only examined leisure time physical activity, it also evaluated non-recreational activities such as active commuting, having an active job or even doing housework, which are more prevalent in low and middle-income countries. And, any activity was found to meet the current recommendations of 30 minutes of activity a day, or 150 minutes a week.
