The secret to living longer could be as simple as picking up your walking pace, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Sydney found that walking at a brisk pace was associated with a risk reduction of 24 per cent for any cause of death. This effect was even more pronounced in older age groups, with fast walkers over the age of 60 reducing their risk of death by a staggering 53 per cent. Professor Emmanuel Stamatakis, who led the study, explained: "A fast pace is generally five to six kilometres per hour, but it really depends on a walker's fitness levels; an alternative indicator is to walk at a pace that makes you slightly out of breath or sweaty when sustained."
