Cycling prolongs life? Look at the data

Many people want to live forever, such as Qin Shihuang, who sent Xu Fu overseas to find medicine, and monsters who covet Tang Monk meat…

Even in modern times, this topic has always been a hot topic.

“Every hour you ride, your life will be extended by one hour.” “if you ride on the car and don’t get down, don’t you want to live forever?” “It’s meaningless.

The extended time is used for cycling!” In the end, can cycling prolong life? Let’s look at a few sets of data before we come to a conclusion.

Commuting and disease scientists at the University of Glasgow studied the relationship between commuting patterns and cardiovascular disease, cancer and other diseases.

They recorded 263450 participants (an average of 52 years old, 52% female).

Participants used various methods of commuting: walking, cycling and motor vehicles.

By the end of the study, 2430 participants had died naturally, while the breakdown data showed that the rate of bicycle death was the lowest.

Sports background and life span an epidemiologist observed the sports background and life span of 80306 British adults.

It was found that the death probability of cyclists was reduced by 15% (roughly similar to swimming, tennis and bodybuilding).

Scientists from the Department of science of university students in Valencia, Spain observed 834 drivers (drivers from France, Italy and Belgium) who participated in the tour de France between 1930 and 1964.

As a result, they found that the average life expectancy of Tour de France drivers was 81.5 years, while that of the general population was 73.5 years.

Tour de France is probably one of the most difficult sports events in the world.

These drivers live longer than most people..
