Number of exercises indicated by WHO is insufficient

Number of exercises indicated by WHO is insufficient

The practice of physical exercises is a great ally in the prevention of diseases, however the ideal amount still generates much debate. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that all people practice at least 600 metabolic equivalents (METs) per week. This represents a 150-minute walk or 75-minute race.

However, a study published in the journal BMJ contradicts the official recommendation: they believe that in order to have health benefits and fight disease, it is necessary to perform 3-4 thousand METs weekly. Researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle have reviewed 174 studies published between 1980 and 2016 on the relationship between physical activity and physical activity, and the risk of developing breast and colon cancer, diabetes, coronary artery disease and stroke. They found that a greater amount of weekly physical activity was associated with lower risks for all five diseases.

Although it seems like a very large load of activities, including exercise at all times of the day can help. "It is important to remember that all physical activity counts, and a good way to increase that amount is simply to incorporate it into everyday life," Simon O'neill, director of the UK-based Diabetes UK, told The Guardian newspaper. researchers point out that it is not yet known if the reduction in disease risk depends on the intensity or duration of the activities done.
