Health Tip of the Day

Keep on Walking

On average, every minute of walking can extend your life by 1.5 to two minutes, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. Walking an extra 20 minutes a day will burn off seven pounds of fat per year. A brisk walk can burn up to 100 calories per mile, or 300 calories per hour. The average person walks about 115,000 miles in a lifetime -- more than four times the circumference of the globe.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.

Health Centers
