Apparently there is a link between Breathing and Heart Attacks........Incredible I know.....If you Breath, you may have a heart attack.

Haha, that makes me remember something a comedian said here where I live, he said; " Statistics show that smoking increases your chance of dying when there is 100% chance that you will die." I really loved that one.

And, I'll now stop telling my kids to walk slower and will put the pedal to the metal. F**k scenery. II'll watch pics of nice environment on the net instead. When I'm fast sitting.

A lot of middle aged people have joint pain, it certainly can cause you to walk more slowly.

A lot of middle aged people are overweight, this exacerbates joint pain. Less movement = more joint pain. Less movement also means you are most likely not in very good shape, get out of breath easily, etc. This is kind of a no-brainer.

I tend to be a fast walker, I feel like I have a lot to do, and would like to get it over with quickly. I find myself annoyed by slow walkers, especially at the grocery store. I have to remind myself to be patient.

My husband covers ground much faster than I do, but his legs are waaaay longer than mine, hence his stride is bigger.. He swears he is just ambling along, while I have to walk twice as fast a pace just to keep up with those long legs. So I guess if I just keep walking with him, I'll live longer because I have to increase my pace? And he will die before me because his personal pace is slower? I'm confused.

So you walk behind your man, good girl.

My two cents is anecdotal, but I feel valid.

I'm the shortest person in my family at 5'10". What this means is I had to practically run as a youngin to walk with them. ( one step for them was 2 or 3 for me. I also verified this with grandchildren trying to " walk" with my Dad.

Now reverse that. When I had toddlers I walked so slow because I was more aware of the difference in our steps.

My kids have bikes because they walk to slow on trails for me. I've been told I walk both fast and slow. Therefore I'm not sure this research is complete. My bestie is closer to 5' and when I forget that my steps are longer than hers she runs along with me.

Is that called gait?? Persons stride walking has a whole lot to do with height.

Or did the scientist who did the study ever consider that the association is the other way?

That people who walk slow have impaired circulation and its an indicator of circulatory problems that could cause a heart attack?

It was with me , i was in pain with my legs everytime i walked less than a mile went on for well over a year maybe 2 then boom in april i had 3 heart attacks in 5 days ,they gave me a blood clot busting drug and it cured my problem for a while now i got a friggin hernia

I wont say i walk slow but i really enjoy the scenery

The association being reversed from (heart attacks are linked to poor circulation/slow walking) to (slow walking "linked" to heart attacks) for a purpose. These people are not stupid.

Are they now going to make anyone who has a heart attack feel "guilty" because they "caused" their own heart attack by walking too slow or being unable to exercise sufficiently.

or is this another version of failure to exercise causes 40 % of all diseases?

They are really determined to convince that we just won't get sick if we do as we are told. And if we do get sick, its all our own fault!

This all sounds very believable.
My fast-walking pace is noticable enough that people have always commented on it. And my blood pressure has checked out as "normal" all my life (until a few weeks ago, but I trust that was a temporary blip).

One thing that slows people down is socialising. I never used to have much difficulty in passing groups of people, because they would be chatting, and ambling at the pace of the slowest walker. Nowadays, I suppose, they would be on their phones.
