Walking half an hour a day helps keep cancer at bay

According to World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) breast and bowel cancer could be prevented through people being more physically active. WCRF recommends being physically active for at least half an hour a day. “By taking up walking as a hobby or even walking to the shops instead of taking the bus or car, people can make a real difference to their health. People who are regularly active are less likely to be overweight, which is an important cancer risk factor",

So those of you who have a dog, how about taking your beloved K9 out for daily walks if you haven't been doing it. Now there's a reason to do it. No dog? Take your spouse after dinner for a romantic evening stroll.
