Furthermore, if participants in the exercise group did gain a disability, they were disabled for a shorter amount of time than those in the comparison group.
Health benefits of exercising
The NHS describes exercise as the “miracle cure we’ve all been waiting for”.
By moving the body on a regular basis, you can reduce your risk of major illnesses, including:
- Coronary heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
By incorporating exercise into your daily routine, you can “lower your risk of early death by up to 30 percent”.
