For those who diligently lace up their running shoes and brave the elements to jog at least an hour a week, there is a very real reward -- an average of six more years of life, Danish researchers found.
· This study was published as an abstract and presented at a conference. These data and conclusions should be considered to be preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
· This substudy of the Copenhagen City Heart Study with more than 35 years follow-up found that jogging was associated with an increase of 6.2 years in lifespan for men and 5.6 years for women compared with non-joggers.
· The amount of jogging required to achieve this improved survival was modest -- between 1 and 2.5 hours per week divided into two or three sessions at a self-described slow to average pace.
