This Stair Test Can Predict How Long You Will Live!
All you need is 4 flights and 1 minute to determine how long you will live!
How people perform on an exercise test that requires them to move very briskly can predict their risk of premature death from heart disease, cancer and other causes, a study presented Thursday at a meeting of the European Society of Cardiology found.
Those with good exercise capacity— capable of high levels of physical exertion, say, on a treadmill — had less chance of dying early of any cause.
If you can do it, you have good functional capacity. If not, it’s a sign you need more exercise, Dr. Jesús Peteiro, the study author and a cardiologist at University Hospital A Coruña in A Coruña, Spain, noted.
