Australian research has revealed that 10,000 steps per day (about 5 miles) not only reduces the risk of diabetes, but it also decreased their body mass index (BMI). At the start of this study the steps walked by almost 600 participants were measured. Then 5 years later they were again tested. Those who increased their step counts over the study life experienced the greatest improvements!
PositiveTip: Lifestyle changes as simple and readily available as daily walking pay great dividends for good health.
