It doesn't take 10,000 steps a day to stay healthy

You Don't Need To Walk 10,000 Steps A Day To Be Healthy: A new study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology reveals that a person doesn't need to walk 10,000 steps a day in order to see health benefits. Researchers found that people can reduce their risk of dying at a young age if they walk 3,967 steps a day. People can reduce their risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by walking 2,337 steps a day.

Researcher Maciej Banach says, "Our analysis indicates that as little as 4,000 steps a day are needed to significantly reduce deaths from any cause, and even fewer to reduce deaths from cardiovascular disease. Our study confirms that the more you walk, the better. We found that this applied to both men and women, irrespective of age, and irrespective of whether you live in a temperate, sub-tropical or sub-polar region of the world, or a region with a mixture of climates.''
