People who move to another country might wish to consider how well suited their new home is for daily walks, which can make individuals less likely to suffer a heart attack or a stroke.
New research by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) shows the chance of experiencing one of these problems is reduced by 50 per cent among those who jog or walk every day.
The study results, which were published in the British Medical Journal, were compiled after more than 10,000 people were monitored over ten years.
They revealed that those who jogged or walked at a faster than average pace were less likely to be struck by a heart attack or a stroke.
A health insurance claim could be less likely among expats who choose to use their new surroundings for regular exercise.
"Jogging or walking briskly makes the heart beat faster – exercising the heart muscle – and we should all try to do activities each day which get the blood pumping," explained the BHF's senior cardiac nurse Maureen Talbot.
