It became clear that at those who daily went more than half an hour on a third the risk of development of a stroke decreases. As a result physicians formulated the federal recommendation: for maintenance of health it is necessary to go on foot not less than half an hour in day. One of fashionable trends - nordic walking.

The difference on average values (but not excess years of life) made 6,7 years.

Result: to set aside arithmetics!

Life - not the mathematical example, in it is not present the place to simple addition and subtraction of years. Otherwise the longevity problem simply would not exist.
