Walk to reduce heart diseases
The World Heart Federation has recommended a minimum 30 minutes of moderate exercise, which includes brisk walking at least five days a week. This way many premature deaths can be prevented, Prof K Srinath Reddy, President of WHF said. BY 2020, 2.6 million Indians are likely to succumb to coronary heart disease and around half of these are likely to strike young and middle-aged people. He said around one in three adults in the US and the UK are not aware of how much they walk each day compared to one in six people in India.
