Walking Your Way to Better Health

Where you live could affect your diabetes risk, according to a study. Researchers examined the connection between diabetes and different Toronto neighborhoods, including those with more destinations, such as shops and schools, within walking distance. In walk-friendly neighborhoods, fewer people were overweight or obese or had diabetes (the study didn’t distinguish among types of diabetes). Living in a more densely populated area was also linked to walking and biking and less diabetes, overweight, and obesity.
