Running is the Best Medicine for Longevity

A multi-centered study published in the American College of Cardiology Journal followed 55,000 adults for 15 years found that those who ran 15 minutes a day, three days a week, were 45% less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke.  Those who ran only 1-2 times a week still had benefits, as did those who were overweight or continued to smoke.  Running only for 5 minutes a day can add 3 years to one’s life.  A vibrating power plate can produce quality fitness by using it 45 minutes a week.
See the Toledo Blade, August 25, 2014 in the Peach section.  Multiple studies have been published in scientific journals.
