Running for as little as five to ten minutes a day could lower a person’s risk of heart attack or stroke. 

 

A new study found that running less than six miles a week at paces slower than ten minutes per mile still substantially reduced deaths from heart disease or stroke. 

Researchers followed more than 55-thousand adults between the ages of 18 and 100 for 15 years.  The scientists found that people who ran even for just a few minutes a day had a lower risk of heart attack or stroke. 

The study is published in Monday’s edition of the “Journal of the American College of Cardiology.”
