Walking 30 minutes a day is a magic pill that protects against disease and early death

Walking for 30 minutes every day is like a magic pill that protects against a range of chronic diseases and even prevents a premature death

Walking for 30 minutes every day is like a magic pill that protects against a range of chronic diseases and even prevents a premature death.

It helps prevent obesity and diabetes, reduces the risk of some cancers, relieves depression and anxiety and reduces the chances of hip fracture by 40 per cent, says Dr James Brown from Aston University. In addition, it slows the progression of Alzheimer's disease, reduces by half arthritic pain and has an overall effect of reducing premature death by around 23 per cent.

"All of these changes are not seen in people who run marathons; they are not seen in people who life eights in the gym, or spend four hours running on the treadmill. These are seen in people who walk and who walk for half an hour a day," he told the British Science festival in Birmingham.
