Men usually have a shorter life expectancy and higher waist.
Excess weight and lack of physical activity will certainly shorten your lifespan, but what’s up?
Scientists from the United Kingdom conducted a study, in which participated 330000 men and women. The study lasted about 12 years, during which time the researchers measured the participants regularly body mass index, waist circumference, physical activity, and analyze overall health.
The results showed that the higher the risk of premature death are people who are not physically active than those whose body mass index greater than 30. Also, scientists have found that it is sufficient for 20 minutes a day walk to the risk of premature death decreased by 30%, regardless of weight.
Physical activity in various ways has a positive effect on health. It regulates the level of blood pressure, regulate the breakdown of glucose, insulin sensitivity in the body and regulates cholesterol levels. In other words, physical activity will exert positive effects on your health, regardless of weight.
Men especially need to be careful, say scientists. The men usually have a shorter life expectancy and higher waist. That is why it is important for them to at an early age begin to practice every day.
