Travelling on foot.- A study reveals that leaving the car and choosing to go to the places on foot when travelling short distances, can significantly reduce mortality rates.
The research has been developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in collaboration with scientists at the Public Health Agency in Barcelona, Spain.
The results of the study revealed that covering short distances on foot forces people to exercise while avoiding the stress caused by the traffic jams. In addition, travelling on foot will significantly reduce the expenses derived from petrol and health treatments.
The conclusions of the research have appeared in the scientific magazine “European Journal of Public Health”.
