The study asked 416,000 Taiwanese how much exercise they had done in the last month. The test subjects were then split into five groups depending on their answers – from “very active” to “not active at all“. They then monitored the study participants over the course of eight years and drew conclusions as to their life expectancy. 15 minutes a day or 90 minutes a week increases life expectancy by 3 years.
The World Health Organization, however, recommends at least 30 minutes of exercise daily.
