Regular brisk walking results in many health benefits

USA Today reported that research shows that brisk walking on a regular basis confers many health benefits. Regular activity, including a walking program, may:

  • lower the risk for premature death,
  • help people keep their weight under control,
  • “and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, some types of cancer and a host of other conditions.

For walking to be its most effective, people should be walking briskly enough that they cannot sing but still can talk.
