EPIC Norfolk cohort study

'Dog ownership supports the maintenance of physical activity during poor weather in older English adults: cross-sectional results from the EPIC Norfolk cohort' published in the BMJ Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. The researchers from UEA and Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR) at the University of Cambridge analysed the data from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer (EPIC) Norfolk cohort and found that owning or walking a dog was one of the most effective ways to beat the usual decline in later-life activity.
