Elevator users have a higher risk of early death: study

Scientists revealed that climbing stairs reduces the risk of dying and prevents humans from cardiac-related diseases, while elevators or lift users have a high risk of early death.

A research study conducted by the European Society of Cardiology uncovered the benefits of climbing stairs.

The analysis of the nine studies consisted of 480,479 participants aged between 35 and 84 years.

The study proved climbing stairs is a form of physical activity, and the use of stairs to go up is much better than using a lift.

“If you have the choice of taking the stairs or lift, go for the stairs as it will help your heart,” Dr Sophie Paddock of the University of the East Anglia, UK, said.

She added even physical activity positively impacts your health, and short bouts of stair climbing should be an achievable target to integrate into your daily routine.

Meanwhile, scientists also found that climbing stairs prevent cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke.

“We would encourage people to incorporate stair climbing into their daily routine,” Dr Paddock said.
