Walking and stroke risk

I touched on health benefits of walking in my first post, and research is always bolstering those claims.

Here’s an example, as published in the journal Stroke.

Women who walked two or more hours weekly lowered stroke risk by 30 percent. Those who kept the pace up — about 3 to 4 miles per hour — dropped their risk by 37 percent. The study followed nearly 40,000 women ages 45 or older.
