More walking is good!!

Last time I discussed some of the more surprising benefits of walking. I wanted to add a bit about walking and its effects on boosting the immune system.  A large study of men and women found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who only exercised once a week or less.  Even if they did get sick, it was for shorter duration and with milder symptoms.  That sounds pretty good for just 20 minutes a day!!
