One More Reason to Walk

The New York Times recently ran a piece called "How Walking May Lower Breast Cancer Risk," click here.
When the researchers cross-tabulated exercise regimens and medical records, they found that those women who walked at least seven hours per week, usually distributed as an hour a day, had 14 percent less risk of developing breast cancer than those who walked for fewer than three hours per week, a significant reduction in risk.
With statistics indicating that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, it might be worth your while to start walking! Men, too, will definitely benefit from walking, too, so everyone should add walking to their daily routine.


I know winter will soon be upon us, but you can't use that as an excuse not to walk if you follow Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home. Walk This Way! [DVD 613.71 LES]--she can start you off on the road to health.
