Scientists at the University of Southern California have discovered that the speed of walking a person can determine the risk of premature death.
According to the study, the faster the man's hikes, the better his health: this indicates a strong nervous system and the absence of cardiovascular diseases. Also, the speed of patients' movement after heart surgery can be assessed by the process of their recovery.
Experts noted that slow pace of walking does not indicate immediate death, but only on the person's biological age. The slower the person walking, the more he has health problems – both hidden and obvious, and should care for his health.
At this point, scientists are exploring the effects of exercise on breast cancer development, while monitoring patients' pace. The results of the study, US experts plan to publish in the near future.
