Study confirms joggers live longer than non-joggers

Danish researchers recorded the jogging habits of more than 17,500 healthy adults between 1976 and 2003 and looked at their life-span after a maximum follow-up of 35 years compared to a predicted survival curve.

They found both male and female joggers were 44% less likely to die than people of similar age who did not jog. 

Female joggers outlived female non-joggers by 5.6 years and male joggers lived 6.2 years longer than non-jogging peers.
