Tip of the Day

Tip of Day

Here's something to consider:
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at a large group of retired elderly, nonsmoking men who were followed for 12 years. Those who walked less than 1 mile/day were almost 2 times more likely to die from any cause than those who walked more than 2 miles/day. So, let's get to walking! Every day!
