From Denise Austin's Morning Stretch

Walk Away From Cancer!

You know that walking helps your heart and reduces your waistline, but did you know it also cuts your cancer risk? Researchers say 30 minutes of walking per day can keep cancer at bay or increase the survival odds of those who get cancer. Why? They maintain it's because those who walk on a regular basis are much less likely to be obese, and obesity is a major risk factor for many types of cancer, including breast cancer.

So, instead of thinking of your daily walk as "just exercise," try thinking of it as a gift you're giving yourself and your family the gift of a long and healthy life! Doesn't that just make you want to go put on your walking shoes right now? Let's go!

wow that's great. I have never ever heard about that.. Well it means walking is a important aspect in our life. Actually me and my family members are too lazy in walking but not in last 3 weeks. Because We all buy some step counter for check that who is walking more. And after one month we will check the reading of all counters and who have more step he will win a meal at outside any restaurant by other members pocket.
