Reactions :  
I discovered the benefits of Walking when my aunt who had pancreas cancer was forced to walk everyday to maintain her blood sugar. My friend LLnL shared with us the benefits of walking and here are few of them.

1)Strengthens muscles, bones and joints

2)Helps with losing or maintaining weight

3)Controls blood pressure, boost "good" cholesterol

4)Lowers the risk of a heart attack or stroke

5)Reduces the risk of breast and colon cancer

6)Help with avoiding diabetes and gallstone surgery

7)Prevents constipation, osteoporosis and impotence

8)Protects against hip fractures

9)Lower stress levels and prevents depression

10)Relieves arthritis and back pain

11)Improves sleep

12)Improves cognitive function

Bonus: You can save money on gas if you "walk" your errands
