DID YOU KNOW that adding more steps to your daily total leads to a longer life, and how you take those steps can have an added benefit? Popular fitness apps and step counters make it easy to count steps, so researchers used a wearable step counting device to compare the effects of uninterrupted bouts of steps (10 minutes or longer) to occasional short spurts, such as climbing the stairs and general daily activities throughout the day. In a study presented at American Heart Association's Epidemiology, Prevention, Lifestyle & Cardiometabolic Health Conference 2021, researchers tracked deaths from any cause for an average of six years. Researchers found:
Overall, 804 deaths occurred during the entire study period of 2011-2019.
Study participants who took more steps in short spurts lived longer, regardless of how many steps they had in longer, uninterrupted bouts. The benefits leveled off at about 4,500 steps per day in short spurts.
Compared to no daily steps, each initial increase of 1,000 steps per day was associated with a 28% decrease in death during the follow-up period.
A 32% decrease in death was noted in participants who took more than 2,000 steps daily in uninterrupted bouts.

Our COVID-19 Vaccine Opinion The document at this link was updated August 9th.
Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. We highly recommend continuing your immune support. See our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.
