Walking Update - Gymophobics

Walking Update

A review published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology shows that the need for walking 10,000 steps per day is greatly over stated.

An analysis of some 227, OOO people from 17 separate studies has found that the possibility of dying prematurely can be cut in those who walk as few as 3,867 steps daily. In fact, the chances of dying from cardio vascular disease such as heart attacks and stroke starts to lesson if they do as little as 2,337 steps a day!

Clearly however, the more steps people take the better and every 1,000 steps a day is linked to a 15 per cent reduction in the risk of dying prematurely.
