According to scientists, all in the first place, the second-lowest physical activity. Doctors came to such conclusions, after a lengthy study of men living in Gothenburg (Sweden). Just a sample hit 792 people born in the year 1913. Doctors were watching for them for 45 years.
The study began in 1963, the year when the observed was 50 years. Then doctors monitored men indicators of cardiovascular system. In 1967 year 656 people were able to pass a VO2 max test, which determines the maximum ability of the body to absorb and absorption of oxygen. The rest of 792 men do it was forbidden because of medical contraindications. Survey participants were held about once every 10 years.
In the year 2012, the authors analysed the causes of mortality. The study observed were divided into three groups (ate 2.00, 2.26 and 2.56 liters of oxygen per minute). It turned out that the more the body is able to absorb oxygen during exercise, the less the risk of premature death.
The researchers concluded that a low tolerance of aerobic exertion (due to low fizičeckoj activity or smoking) was directly linked to premature death. To live a long time, scientists recommend primarily to abandon bad habits.
