Walking 20 Minutes a Day Can Cut the Heart Disease Risk in Women
According to a recent research, brisk walking for just 20 minutes a day may reduce the risk of heart disease by 25% in women under 50. Researchers also say that it’s no matter how you get the exercise as long as you do at least 2.5 hours a week.
Even if a woman is overweight, she can still reduce her risk of heart disease walking every day for at least 20 minutes.
Professor Andrea Chomistek from Indiana University’s School of Public Health says: “Our reason for carrying out this study was primarily to focus on younger women. We wanted to identify steps that young women could take to lower their incidence of coronary heart disease.”
