Current ongoing study research the Copenhagen City Heart Study compared light jogging, moderate joggers, strenuous joggers, and sedentary individuals. The study includes 1000 joggers and 400 healthy non-joggers. They found that the death rate of light joggers was 90% less than non-joggers, and 60% less for moderate joggers vs. non-joggers. The death rates for strenuous joggers and sedentary non-joggers were not significantly different. Jogging for a total of one hour/week had the lowest death rate. The researchers pointed out that the best combination was jogging at a light to moderate pace at a total 60 – 145 minutes/week.
