    Slow Walkers More Likely to Die Young
    Ambling is all well and good, but it could be time to pick up the pace

    We’ve all thought about shoving slow walkers out of the way when in a hurry - but it turns out they could actually be heading for a far worse fate.

    According to a new study, healthy adults who are slow walkers are twice as likely to die from heart disease as those of us who walk at a more brisk pace.

    “This suggests that habitual walking pace is an independent predictor of heart-related death,” lead author Professor Tom Yates said.

    Researchers from the University of Leicester followed 420,727 people over a period of six years to assess death rates.

    Those who were slow walkers were found to be between 1.8 and 2.4 times more likely to die of heart disease - which is the world’s biggest killer - during the timeframe.

    The researchers took into account risk factors including smoking, BMI and diet, but found that the conclusion still applied to both men and women.

    However, it was actually adults with the lowest BMIs who were found to have the highest risk from walking slowly.

    The study’s authors believe that walking pace is an indicator of overall health and fitness as it’s strongly linked to exercise tolerance.

    I've encountered a lot of these slow walkers. They're a $#@!ing hazard in grocery stores and whatnot, just like slow-ass drivers are on the roads. :P

    Statistically speaking, every mile per hour you drive over the speed limit increases your risk of a fatal accident. I'm very excited about the efforts to replace humans with robots as drivers of cars.

    The ESTJ is generally very opinionated, and likes to appear authoritative and in charge. They may temper this tendency when around other ESTJs whom they value. Around other types, this tendency may cause them to be abrupt and direct, to the point where they inadvertantly step on people's toes.

    There are lies, damn lies, and statistics. :P The risk of speeding depends on context of road and traffic conditions. If we play the statistics game I can justify driving drunk.

    You mean you are excited about the government using violent force to stop people from being able to travel the way that they prefer?
