A recent study has found that people who take 10,000 steps per day have waists between 4 and 6 inches smaller than people who take only 3,500 steps per day.
It just so happens that 3,500 steps is the average for adults in the U.S.
10,000 steps equates to 5 miles.
If everyone took 10,000 steps not only would they be svelter-they also would enjoy a reduced risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes, better cognitive ability (several studies show fitness supports mental sharpness) and at the same time would help the environment by relying more on human than fossil fuel power.
