Those who engage in regular exercise may lower their risk of developing anxiety by almost 60 per cent, finds a new study.

Those who engage in regular exercise may lower their risk of developing anxiety by almost 60 per cent, finds a new study. The study, published in the journal 'Frontiers in Psychiatry', indicated that a group with a more physically active lifestyle had an almost 60 per cent lower risk of developing anxiety disorders over a follow-up period of up to 21 years.

"This association between a physically active lifestyle and a lower risk of anxiety was seen in both men and women," said researcher Martine Svensson from the Lund University in Sweden. Anxiety disorders -- which typically develop early in a person's life -- are estimated to affect approximately 10 per cent of the world's population and has been found to be twice as common in women compared to men.

Cindy Parlow Cone of U.S. Soccer attends a meeting of the organization's board of directors in Chicago, Dec. 6, 2019.

United States Soccer Federation President Cindy Parlow Cone said Friday the body hopes to "equalize" World Cup prize money for its men's and women's national teams as part of efforts to settle ongoing litigation with its women footballers. In an open letter addressed to U.S. fans, Parlow Cone said the gulf in prize money paid out by FIFA in the men's and women's tournaments was "by far the most challenging issue" facing U.S. Soccer in pay negotiations with men's and women's teams.

The question of World Cup prize money formed a prominent part of a lawsuit filed by the U.S. women's soccer team in 2019, which accused the USSF of "stubbornly refusing" to pay its men and women players equally. A federal judge later rejected the claim of pay discrimination, but the U.S. women have appealed. The 2019 lawsuit cited the discrepancy in World Cup prize money payments paid to the two teams in 2014 and 2015. The U.S. men received $5.375 million for reaching the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup, while the women received $1.725 million for winning the 2015 tournament.
