Walking up to 10,000 steps a day can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and death, even with a sedentary lifestyle.

In a time when a sedentary lifestyle has become the norm, a study from the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre confirms that the simple act of walking an average of 10,000 steps a day can reduce the risk of death by 39 percent and cardiovascular disease by 21 percent, regardless of time spent sedentary.

This research was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Involving over 72,000 individuals, the study stands out as the first of its kind to objectively measure, through wrist-worn wearables, the impact of daily steps on offsetting the dangers of prolonged sitting and inactivity.
