Dr.Lepisto: Healthy Steps
Dr. Christopher Lepisto of Grand Junction Naturopathic medicine was here today revealing a new study on the benefits of walking.
Many people love to walk in Colorado and we have one of the most active states in the nation.
However there is no evidence that 10,000 steps a day is required for health. Lepisto says over 18,000 women demonstrated that the largest impact was 41% reduction in mortality rate between women in the first and second quartiles that is- women who walked only 2,700 steps per day compared to 4,400 steps per day.
Mortality rates continued to decrease with increasing steps up to approximately 7,500 steps per day.
