In fact, it was found to be just as significant, if not more so, compared to other risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, and heart disease.
For the study, researchers looked health outcomes for 122,007 patients ordered to undertake treadmill tests between January 1, 1991, and December 31, 2014. Researchers analyzed mortality rates among volunteers, their history of disease and overall physical condition.
The study's lead author Wael Jaber said that those patients who do not do sports, have an increased risk of dying sooner than those who best coped with the tests scientists. "But I'm surprised they overwhelm even the risk factors as strong as smoking, diabetes or even end-stage disease".
It turns out the only thing worse for you than getting up and going outside for a smoke could be not getting up what so ever.
The benefits of exercise were seen across all ages and in both men and women.
As such, being unfit, 'should be treated nearly as a disease that has a prescription, which is called exercise, ' he said.
Breaking down the results, researchers found that people with sedentary lifestyles had 500 per cent higher risk associated with death than those categorized as being top exercise performers.
The risks, he said, became more shocking when comparing those who don't exercise much.
As such, Jaber said, "There actually is no ceiling for the benefit of exercise" - including in the case of "ultra" exercisers, who are sometimes said to be at higher risk of death due to the extremes they push their bodies. Extreme aerobic fitness was associated with the greatest benefit, particularly in older patients (70 and older) and in those with hypertension. In those over the age of 70, elite performers had a almost 30 percent reduced risk of mortality compared to high performers. In fact, a past study has even shown that simply replacing 30 minutes of sedentary time with 30 minutes of housework can benefit health, while another revealed that replacing 6 hours of sitting with 6 hours of standing can even help with weight loss.
In fact, they found that those who were unfit in the treadmill had worse prognosis in regard to death risk compared to smokers, those who are hypertensive, or those who have diabetes. "We're meant to walk, run, exercise".
