Walking 7000 steps/day may lower mortality risk
A cohort study conducted by CARDIA found that taking at least 7000 steps/day during middle adulthood is associated with 50% to 70% lower risk of mortality. In this study, participants wore an accelerometer on their hip for 7 consecutive days during all waking hours and their daily step counts were recorded. There was an incrementally lower risk of premature death with a higher number of steps per day, up to a certain point in which there was diminishing returns after 10,000 steps per day. Participants who walked 7,000 to 9,999 steps per day had a similar lower risk for mortality compared with those who walked more than 10,000 steps per day.
