How Many Steps Do I Need To Walk Everyday?
Scientists Have Definitively Established How Many Steps You Need To Walk Per Day To Live Longer.
The number that usually shows you the mobile phone while walking is “10,000”, referred to the steps that you have taken up to that moment and whose should make you feel better in terms of health. But is this really the case or is it a random number? A team of researchers took care of it by doing a little more in-depth analysis. By analyzing data on tens of thousands of people on four continents compiled from 15 existing studies, Amanda Paluch, an epidemiologist at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and her team of researchers has now come up with a more comfortable figure: the optimal number is probably closer to 6,000 steps a day, depending on your age. Last year, the same group published research based on a cohort of more than 2,000 middle-aged individuals living in the United States. They found that taking at least 7,000 steps a day reduced the chances of premature death by 50 to 70 percent. The study found that those who are younger may also walk a little more, which doesn’t hurt, but there is no evidence they would necessarily live longer by exceeding 8,000–10,000 steps a day.
