About The Study: In this study of 3,101 adult participants, the number of days per week taking 8,000 steps or more was associated with a lower risk of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in a curvilinear fashion. The findings suggest that for adults who face difficulties in exercising regularly, achieving the recommended daily steps only a couple days a week may have meaningful health benefits.
