Stamatakis and her colleagues came to this conclusion by examining data that the social services of Great Britain and Australia collected from 1994 to 2006, watching the health of about 80,000 elderly British sportsmen.
The purpose of these observations was to check whether intense physical stresses affect life expectancy and predisposition to various diseases, including heart attacks, strokes and other problems with the cardiovascular system.
The authors of the article decided to test how physical activity affects health not in general, but in accordance with different sports. It turned out that not all of them are equally useful.
For example, football, running, weightlifting and many other sports did not affect life expectancy and the probability of death due to health problems. Other disciplines had a more positive impact on human health and prolonged life.
For example, badminton, tennis and so-called squash (tennis with the wall) proved to be the most useful sports for elderly British - they decreased the probability of premature death due to any possible reasons, approximately 47%, and 56% - due to problems with heart and blood vessels.
