Middle-aged told to walk faster

Middle-aged told to walk faster Middle-aged people are being urged to walk faster to help stay healthy, amid concern high levels of inactivity may be harming their health.

Officials at Public Health England said the amount of activity people did started to tail off from the age of 40.

They are urging those between the ages of 40 and 60 to start doing regular brisk walks.

They say just 10 minutes a day could have a major impact, reducing the risk of early death by 15%.

But PHE estimates four out of every 10 40- to 60-year-olds take a brisk 10-minute walk less frequently than once a month. BBC News
