London: According to a new study published in The Lancet Global Health, at least 3.9 million or 39 lakh people are dying prematurely every year worldwide. Researcher at the University of Edinburgh, UK, Dr Paul Kelly has said, “It should be kept in mind that lifestyle factors, such as lack of physical activity, poor diet, drinking alcohol, and smoking are health-threatening factors.” In its study, this research team found that people who are physically active had a lower proportion of deaths.
The team looked at previously published data from 168 countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity.
Analyzing the data, he found that globally, people who were involved in physical activity had an average (on average) 15 percent lower number of deaths, 14 percent for women and 16 percent for men. . This is about saving the lives of about 3.9 million, or 39 lakh people annually. The findings also showed that it was 18 per cent on average in low income countries and 14 per cent on average for high income countries.
Study researcher Tessa Strain of the University of Cambridge, UK, said, “Whether it's sports or the gym or just brisk walking during lunch, we can tell the good news of the achievement being achieved by looking at the number of rescued people. “
