Infographic. Is running associated with a lower risk of all-cause, cardiovascular and cancer mortality, and is more better? A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Findings from previous studies showed inconsistent associations between running participation and all-cause, cancer and cardiovascular mortality, so a systematic review of previous studies on this topic was synthesised. Expand
Sex-Specific Differences in Running Injuries: A Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis and Meta-Regression
TLDR
Differences between female and male runners in specific injury diagnoses should be considered in the development of individualised and sex-specific prevention and rehabilitation strategies to manage running-related injuries. Expand
Lifestyle, WCRF/AICR Recommendations and Esophageal Adenocarcinoma Risk. A Systematic Review of the Literature
One of the most notable changes in the Esophageal Cancer (EC) epidemiology is the rising incidence and prevalence of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) in developed countries, likely due to lifestyleExpand
Systematic Review of Psychological and Behavioral Correlates of Recreational Running
TLDR
Results suggest that the identification of behavioral and psychological correlates of recreational running across populations can contribute to inform and guide a public policy agenda, focused on helping people sustain regular physical activity, through a modality they have chosen and appear to enjoy. Expand
Biosocial and disease conditions are associated with good quality of life among older adults in rural eastern Nepal: Findings from a cross-sectional study
TLDR
The findings of this study reinforce the need of improving QOL of older adults through implementing programs aimed at addressing the identified biosocial and disease conditions that catalyse poor QOL in this older population residing in rural parts of Nepal. Expand
Participation in specific leisure-time activities and mortality risk among U.S. adults.
TLDR
Participating in moderate-to-vigorous walking, bicycling, or running may be particularly beneficial for health and longevity. Expand
Prevalence and burden of health problems in competitive adolescent distance runners: A 6-month prospective cohort study
TLDR
The most burdensome health problems, irrespective of sex, included lower leg, knee, and foot/toes injuries, alongside upper respiratory illnesses, and the mean weekly prevalence of time loss was relatively low, regardless of health problem type or sex. Expand
How is sport participation related to mortality, diabetes and prediabetes for different body mass index levels?
TLDR
It is shown that sport participation is associated with lower health risks, especially prediabetes, but the effect varies between BMI levels, with the strongest link for persons with a healthy weight. Expand

Systematic review and meta-analysis of reduction in all-cause mortality from walking and cycling and shape of dose response relationship
TLDR
The analysis shows that walking and cycling have population-level health benefits even after adjustment for other physical activity (PA), and public health approaches would have the biggest impact if they are able to increase walked and cycling levels in the groups that have the lowest levels of these activities. Expand
Association of physical activity with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Physical activity is associated with a marked decrease in cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in both men and women, even after adjusting for other relevant risk factors. Expand
Domains of physical activity and all-cause mortality: systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of cohort studies.
TLDR
Higher levels of total and domain-specific physical activity were associated with reduced all-cause mortality and risk reduction per unit of time increase was largest for vigorous exercise. Expand
Association of physical activity level and stroke outcomes in men and women: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Increased PA level appears beneficial in reduction of risk of stroke and related outcomes, however, higher levels of PA may be required in women to achieve as significant a risk reduction as in men. Expand
Associations of specific types of sports and exercise with all-cause and cardiovascular-disease mortality: a cohort study of 80 306 British adults
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that participation in specific sports may have significant benefits for public health, and future research should aim to further strengthen the sport-specific epidemiological evidence base and understanding of how to promote greater sports participation. Expand
Meta-Analyses of the Effects of Habitual Running on Indices of Health in Physically Inactive Adults
TLDR
Endurance running was effective in providing substantial beneficial effects on body mass, body fat, resting heart rate, VO2max, triglycerides and HDL cholesterol in physically inactive adults and the longer the length of training, the larger the achieved health benefits. Expand
Can physical activity modulate pancreatic cancer risk? a systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
Despite indications of an inverse relationship with higher levels of work and total activity, there was little evidence of such associations with recreational and other activity exposures. Expand
Effects of Running on Chronic Diseases and Cardiovascular and All-Cause Mortality.
TLDR
This review specifically reviewed studies published in PubMed since 2000 that included at least 500 runners and 5-year follow-up so as to analyze the relationship between vigorous aerobic PA, specifically running, and major health consequences, especially CVD and all-cause mortality. Expand
Long-term health benefits of physical activity – a systematic review of longitudinal studies
BackgroundThe treatment of noncommunicable diseases (NCD), like coronary heart disease or type 2 diabetes mellitus, causes rising costs for the health system. Physical activity is supposed to reduceExpand
Physical activity and cancer: an umbrella review of the literature including 22 major anatomical sites and 770 000 cancer cases
TLDR
Physical activity is associated with a lower risk of several cancers, but only colon and breast cancer associations were supported by strong or highly suggestive evidence, respectively. Expand
