Walking While Working Could Reduce a Multitude of Health Risks, Study Finds
PRWeb

hysiotherapist Leslie Alford from the United Kingdom's University of East Anglia reviewed 40 international research papers focusing on the impact of moderate exercise on health published during the past four years.

The review found that individuals engaging in daily moderate exercise (walking) could reduce the risk of 24 mental and physical health conditions including cancer, heart disease, dementia, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, and high blood pressure.

Walking, it was found, for at least 30 minutes a day was associated with a reduction in cancer and walking 60 minutes a day decreased the incidence of cancer a further 16 per cent.

The study also reported that men who are more active at work -- not desk bound -- have lower rates of prostate cancer.

"This is further clinical evidence regarding the curative power of walking in restoring and maintaining health and the necessity to allow employees to move during the day," stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk.com. "There are actually 58 diseases related to obesity alone, so we believe that this analysis has an even far greater positive health impact than reported."

Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk is an affordable, full sized workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.

TrekDesk is currently available for sale online at TrekDesk.com for $479.00 including free shipping.
