What physical activity protects against diabetes?!

Scientists at Tehran Medical University have discovered that people who regularly walk at a speed of more than four kilometers per hour are less likely to develop diabetes.

The British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) indicates that the new study is based on the results of a group of previous studies devoted to the benefits of walking, in which 508,121 volunteers from the United States, Japan, and Britain participated. From these studies, scientists collected information about the participants' level of physical activity and their health status. In order to determine the type of exercise that is effective in preventing diabetes.

It became clear to the researchers that walking regularly at a speed of 3-5 km per hour reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 15 percent, regardless of the time the person spends walking. Walking at a speed of 5-6 km per hour reduces the risk of contracting this disease by 24 percent.

Researchers point out that walking speed is an important indicator of a person's general health condition and functional capabilities. This exercise also stimulates the heart and respiratory system and increases muscle strength. In addition, brisk walking effectively reduces weight, and is a diabetes prevention measure.
