Walking For 20 Minutes A Day Could Save 10,000 Lives A Year

A regular stroll or brisk walk in the park could rapidly slash the death rate of heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases, according to new research by The World Cancer Research Fund.

The study, supported by The Department for Transport's National Travel Survey (United Kingdom), reveals that the number of people choosing to walk instead of driving or taking public transport is at the lowest level since 1988.
