WHO Says 30-Minutes of Exercise Each Day Could Halve Heart Disease Risk

Just 30-minutes of exercise each day can reduce a person’s risk of developing heart disease by 50%, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The Who says that exercise should be regarded as “a pillar of a healthy lifestyle.” Many people say that they don’t have the time to go for a 30-minute workout each day, however this need not be the case. Research has shown that three 10-minute burst of activity are just as beneficial as one long session, so the recommended daily quota could be achieved simply by working to and from work and by taking the stairs instead of the elevator. According to the Who, such simple measures to incorporate 3-minutes of exercise into our daily life could halve our risk of developing inactivity-related disease such as obesity, type II diabetes, and heart disease.
