Just 25 minutes of brisk walking a day can add up to seven years to your life , according to health experts.

Researchers have found that moderate exercise could halve the risk of dying from a heart attack for someone in their fifties or
sixties .

Coronary heart disease is the UK ’ s single biggest killer, causing one death every seven seconds, and exercise has long been seen as
a way to reduce the risks by cutting obesity and diabetes .

A new study presented at the European Society of Cardiology ( ESC ) Congress suggested that regular exercise can increase life span.

A group of 69 healthy non -smokers , aged between 30 and 60, who did not take regular exercise were tested as part of the study at Saarland University in Germany .

Blood tests taken during six months of regular aerobic exercise , high -intensity interval training and strength training showed that an
anti -ageing process had been triggered and helped repair old DNA.

“ This suggests that when people exercise regularly, they may be able to retard the process of ageing, ” said Sanjay Sharma , professor of inherited cardiac diseases in
sports cardiology at St George ’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in London .

“ We may never avoid be-coming completely old, but we may delay the time we become old. We may look younger when we ’ re 70 and
may live into our nineties .

“ Exercise buys you three to seven additional years of life . It is an antidepressant, it improves cognitive function and there is now
evidence that it may retard the onset of dementia. ”

The advice from experts is that everyone should do at least 20 minutes of walking or jogging a day, given the sedentary lifestyles
and changes in diet that have contributed to high death rates from heart disease . Exercise can also improve brain functioning .

Exercise brings benefits at whatever age the person starts . People who start exercising at the age of 70 are less likely to go on to develop a condition that leads to irregular or
racing heart rates in 10 per cent of people aged over 80 .


“ The study brings a bit more understanding of why physical activity has that effect, ” said
Christi Deaton, Florence Nightingale
Foundation Professor of Clinical Nursing Research at Cambridge Institute of Public Health.

“ It helps us understand the process of cellular ageing, as that ’ s what drives our organ system and body ageing , and the effects physical
activity can have on the cellular level.

“ The more active you are , and it doesn’ t matter when you start , the more benefit you are going to have. ”
