Walking can save your life.

Comments (0)

This month, we're featuring a resource on pedestrian safety to get you thinking about how you can protect yourself when you're out for a stroll!

But do you know the health benefits of walking?

Several Harvard studies show : 

  • Walking at least nine miles a week was linked to a 22% lower death rate.
  • Walking at least 30 minutes a day was linked to an 18% lower risk of coronary artery disease.
  • Walking at least three hours a week was linked to a 35% lower risk of heart attack and cardiac death and a 34% lower risk of stroke.

The American Heart Association has also posted a compelling article on the benefits of walking versus running!

"walking briskly can lower your risk of high blood pressurehigh cholesterol and diabetes as much as running," - AHA

 

Take the hint! Get good sneakers and get out there! It's so worth it.

Remember to order our free book, The Essential Guide to Pedestrian Safety.
