Slow Walkers, Either Men Or Women Are More Likely To Die From Heart Disease


A six-year study at the University of Leicester, the United Kingdom on 420,727 individuals across Leicestershire, the United Kingdom shows a higher risk of heart diseases (such as cardiovascular diseases, heart attack, heart failure or stroke) among middle-aged men or women who are slow walkers compared to others.

Slow walkers, either men or women are more likely to die from cardiovascular diseases, heart attack, heart failure or stroke.

This may be because those people who walk fast are likely doing more exercise and physically more active. The physically active people are protected against obesity, blood pressure and other risk factors associated with heart diseases. The researchers say that people with a high risk of mortality and low physical fitness can be identified with the help of self-reported walking pace of an individual.

The research team also conducted an analytical study to ascertain the handgrip strength as a good predictor of death from the heart disease. The study shows that the handgrip strength is a weak predictor of death from the heart disease. But, this criteria cannot be generalized to all the people.

Walking: Daily walking can reduce bad cholesterol (LDL), blood pressure (hypertension), body weight, stress, anxiety, and depression. The walking can increase good cholesterol (HDL), bone health and life expectancy.

An earlier study shows that walking can lower the risk of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, dementia, Alzheimer's, cancer, coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and osteoporosis. The health experts say that an individual will get the best health benefits if he walks at a speed of more than 2.5 miles per hour (4.0 km per hour). The following table shows the walking speed categories.

The pace of walking Distance covered in an hour
Slow speed 2.5 miles per hour or four km per hour
Moderate speed 3.5 miles per hour or 5.5 km per hour
Fast and intensive speed Four miles per hour or 6.5 km per hour

An individual can burn about 3,500 calories of energy to lose one pound of body weight. Use this energy expenditure formula to calculate the burning of calories with activity.
