Walking slow causes Heart-disease

We’ve all thought about shoving slow walkers out of the
way when in a hurry – but it turns out they could actually
be heading for a far worse fate.
According to a new study, healthy adults who are slow
walkers are twice as likely to die from heart disease
as those of us who walk at a more brisk pace.
“This suggests that habitual walking pace is an
independent predictor of heart-related death,” lead author
Professor Tom Yates said.
Researchers from the University of Leicester followed
420,727 people over a period of six years to assess death
rates.
Those who were slow walkers were found to be between
1.8 and 2.4 times more likely to die of heart disease –
which is the world’s biggest killer
