Your Health 4-5-13 Which is better walking or running

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to running or walking which is better?

A new study found walking is as good for your health as running.

But, you'll need to walk longer to get the same benefits.

Researchers found the same energy used for moderate walking and intense running had similar results.

However, people who chose to run got the benefit in a shorter amount of time.

Regardless of whether you run or walk, researchers say both reduce the risk for high blood pressure, diabetes, and possibly coronary heart disease.
