Walking is Great Medicine
Hippocrates did the first clinical studies by observing people and comparing their health habits. He noticed that bodies grow relaxed and squat ...through their sedentary lives, which led to various diseases. Those who walked more stayed well longer. So he often prescribed exercise. Dozens of studies show that even 30 minutes of walking a day lowers your risk for diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and certain cancers. A. National Cancer Institute's study on more than 650,000 people found that those who walked briskly for just 150 minutes a week gained a few years of life expectancy. Walk on!
