Walking 20 Minutes a Day Can Cut the Heart Disease Risk in Women

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.”
