Study: Lack of Exercise More Deadly Than Obesity

“Just a 20-minute brisk walk each day can lower odds of early death”   Being sedentary may be twice as deadly as being obese, a new study suggests.

Fast-Slow Walking May Be Better for Diabetes

Periods of power walking mixed with strolling at a more leisurely pace may be a more effective way for people with diabetes to control their blood sugar levels, rather than walking at a constant speed, according to a small study. Exercise helps people with type 2 diabetes control their blood sugar levels.
