The best exercise for your hear


The best exercise for your heart is brisk walking, and not running. It turns out, it is the distance you go, rather than the speed, that reaps the biggest health benefits, according to researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California and Hartford Hospital in Connecticut. And those benefits include reducing blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes. To be sure, running is a heart-healthy exercise, but this study showed that brisk walking will give the same benefit with a far lower incidence of injury. Running and walking led to similar reductions in risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, and perhaps even heart disease, reports HealthDay News. Running reduced the risk of high blood pressure 4.2 percent, and walking reduced the risk 7.2 percent. Running reduced the risk for high cholesterol 4.3 percent, and walking lowered the risk 7 percent. Running lowered the risk for diabetes 12.1 percent, and walking reduced the risk 12.3 percent.
