What is the healthiest way to commute to work, and can a more active commute reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease? With train strikes becoming what seems increasingly more common, commuters are looking at a more active approach than the tube. In a five year study based in the UK, scientists found both walking and cycling to work showed significant benefits to health over sitting on public transport or taking the car. Results from the University of Glasgow showed regular cycling cut the risk of cancer by 45% and heart disease by 46%. So, whether it’s cycling, running or walking, exercise to and from work is certainly no bad thing!!
