In a nutshell:  Running for just 5-10 minutes per day can significantly reduce risk of death from all causes and cardiovascular disease according to new research.  Authors of the research, published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, investigated the long term effects of running on mortality.  Over a 15 year period runners had a 30 to 45 percent lower adjusted risk of all cause and cardiovascular mortality compared to non runners.  Even running for 5-10 minutes per day at a speed of less than six miles per hour, was found to improve life expectancy.
