Leading an active life might help people live longer according to the results of a recent study from researchers at the Åstrand Laboratory of Work Physiology of the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences in Stockholm.

Leading an active life might help people live longer according to the results of a recent study from researchers at the Åstrand Laboratory of Work Physiology of the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences in Stockholm.

The study began in the years between 1997 and 1999 with a subject group of over 5 thousand Swedish men and women that were 60 years old.

They were each given a questionnaire about their health history, daily activity and lifestyle, along with physical medical assessments.

After 12 and a half years, almost 500 of the subjects had a heart attack or stroke, and 400 people participating in the study had died.

Subjects who were active every day were less likely to have heart related health problems and were reportedly less likely to die than subjects who weren’t active.

Results from the study show that there were 70 active participants who passed away for every 100 of the less active subjects who died, and 73 of the active subjects had a stroke or heart attack for every 100 subjects who were less active and faced these health problems.
