    At least I'll die healthy.

    But, really, even that article admits:

    Those who jogged at a steady pace for less than two and a half hours a week were least likely to die in this time.
    It seems to indicate pushing past 7mph and 2.5hrs A week is 'bad'*, but I'm willing to bet the vast majority of recreational joggers fall below that.

    *I've yet to see the actual mortality stats, but I'm going to presume they're as miniscule as ever but the press just can't resist a headline.

    I have been diagnosed with an enlarged left ventricle from running too much, that could be up to 15 hours a week.

    Personally the study sounds like a bag of tulipe, although I can actually find it referenced anywhere to give it a read.

    1000 people is not even remotely enough to do a study that can make such claims, the study seems to have been done entirely by questionnaire rather than continually medicals for those involved.

    And the British heart foundation claim that this is down to restructuring of the heart and arteries where as all I can see the study claims that people are just more likely to die, of anything presumably.

    Like being run over on a run, heart attack of the sedentary first timer.

    That would be this one I presume: http://content.onlinejacc.org/articl...icleID=2108914

    1,098 healthy joggers and 3,950 healthy nonjoggers
    Conclusions The findings suggest a U-shaped association between all-cause mortality and dose of jogging as calibrated by pace, quantity, and frequency of jogging. Light and moderate joggers have lower mortality than sedentary nonjoggers, whereas strenuous joggers have a mortality rate not statistically different from that of the sedentary group.
    Just the press...don't worry.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    What about cycling? Are you still as healthy as a non-jogger? Or does the likelyhood of being run over make up for it?
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    As was in the news yesterday everyone now an even chance of getting Cancer thanks to people living longer. So your best bet for avoiding cancer is a lifetime of sloth and burgers because then you'll die young.

    Yes, the news was puked out by Beeb like a fact. Half of us will get cancer, apparently!
