Walking Lowers Risk of Stroke

PositiveTips

A British study of over 3000 healthy men ages 60-80 found as their walking increased their risk of stroke decreased. Those who walked 8-14 hours per week had one-third the risk of stroke compared to those who walked 3 hours per week or less. When they upped their walking to 22 hours per week their stroke risk dropped by two-thirds! Walking burns calories, helps the heart and muscles and relieves stress.
