If it were not for the elevators, people would be much healthier. The fact was discovered by Swedish scientists. They piled up on scientific evidence supporting that stair climbing is great for our health. Researches encourage those with a sedentary lifestyle not to take the elevator at all.
They argue that even such a moderate physical exercise as walking up and down the stairs is able to increase fitness level rapidly.
Their statements come from the results of the study involving 69 people. Volunteers were asked to use the stairs every day. The number of stair flights climbed was being gradually increased from 5 to 23. After 3 months, scientists examined the volunteers to find the improvements in lungs ventilation, blood pressure and the reduction in their weight. So, it’s for you to decide.
