Among older women, 10,000 steps per day not needed for lower mortality

A new study led by investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that older women, taking as few as 4,400 steps per day was significantly associated with lower risk of death compared to taking 2,700 steps per day. Risk of death continued to decrease with more steps taken but leveled off at around 7,500 steps per day — less than the 10,000 steps default goal in many wearables.
