Pedometer could go a long way for health

Have you ever used a pedometer? They’re the small, battery-powered devices that usually clip to a belt or the waist of your pants.

They measure the amount of steps taken during exercise or throughout the day. Two thousand to 4,000 steps can make for a pretty good walk, maybe 20 to 40 minutes. Although many people might find it difficult to reach a goal of 4,000 or even 10,000 steps per day, it’s hard to dispute the health benefits walking can provide.

Walking can decrease the risk for heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, stroke, type-2 diabetes and other conditions. It seems even a 5,000-step walk can provide some measurable health benefits.
