If there is more people doing running frequently, there more likely be substantial improvements in population health and better life, conclude the researchers.
But there is still not clear what kind of running method that can lowering the chance of death from any health related cause and specially from coronary disease and cancer, said the researchers.
Nor is it clear for how a person must do running to reap these potential health benefits, nor whether upping running frequency, duration, and pace — basically, increasing the ‘dose’ — may give more advantageous.
To find out, the researchers reviewed relevant published research, conference presentations, ánd doctoral theses ánd dissertations in a broad range of academic databases systematically.
They looked for studies that linked to running/jogging and the chance of death from all causes, coronary disease, and cancer.
They found 14 suitable studies which is involving 232,149 participants, that has been tracked for between 5.5 and 35 years for their health and during this time, 25,951 of the participants is died.
When the study data were pooled, any amount of running was linked to lower risk of death by 27% and this effect is affecting both human gender, compared with no running participants.
Also the results was show that participants who do running had 30% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and 23% lower risk of death from cancer.
Even small ‘doses’ of run, for example, once weekly or less, lasting less than 50 minutes each for each run, and at a speed below 6 miles (8 km) an hour, still seemed to be linked with significant health/longevity benefits.
So even if you do running for 25 minutes or less than the recommended weekIy duration of vigorous physical activity it still could decrease the threat of death. Potentially a great option for all those that do not have time to doing enough exercise by doing this in insufficient time, suggest the researchers.
But increasing ‘thé dose’ of running doesn’t mean you will get further lowering risk from the risk of death from any health cause, showed in the analysis.
Yet this is an observational study analysis, and therefore, it can be said that the analysis from this study cannot be establish with death cause. Also the researchers said that the real amount of study result being included was small and their methods are varied considerably, which may effecting the results.
However, they suggesting that any running amount is more preferable compared to not doing it, the researches conclude that “Increased rates of running participation in the society regardless of the running dose, probably would still give substantial improvements in society population health and longevity.”
