Walking is Just as Good as Running in Preventing Heart Disease

For individuals who are just starting to make exercise a regular activity and are not too enthusiastic about running, there is good news because walking for exercise can actually conjure the same results as with the former.

The proponents of the study Thrombosis and Vascular Biology, Williams and Dr. Paul Thompson, have stated their findings after evaluating the developments in more than 33,000 runners and 16,000 walkers. According to them, both activities led to reductions in risk of blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, and perhaps even heart disease.
