Is walking beneficial to my health?

Walking is very beneficial to your health.  Walking about 20 minutes per day at a moderate pace, which is the equivalent to walking about 2,000 steps, has been shown to reduce the risks of cardio vascular disease (CVD) and improve your health.  This was shown to reduce the incidence of CVD by 10% in people who had an impaired glucose tolerance, but also reduced the risk of CVD by 8% in the general population.

 

This study supported the fact that exercise is extremely important for your overall health.

Moderate activity can lower the risk of circulatory problems in all people.
