A new study has revealed that speed of walking at age 45 can determine the aging their brains and bodies have endured.

A study titled “Association of Neurocognitive and Physical Function With Gait Speed in Midlife”, has said that slower walkers were shown to have “accelerated aging”, and their lungs, teeth and immune systems tended to be not as good as the people who walked faster.

Gait speed is more than just a geriatric index of adult functional decline; rather, it is a summary index of lifelong aging with possible origins in childhood central nervous system (CNS) deficits, the study said.

This helps to explain why gait can be such a powerful indicator of risk of disability and death in the elderly, it said.

It also encourages rethinking gait as not only a motoric concern, but as an integrative measure of health, the study added.
