Chapter X: Walking
Renown Cardiologist Denton Cooley once said “If people would walk briskly for 30 minutes every day, there would be no need for open heart surgery!”
He wasn’t exaggerating, he meant it! Dr. Cooley pioneered open heart surgery. Worldwide, he has saved millions of heart patients through his pioneering heart-saving innovations.
Walking is the Gold Standard of Exercise. Depressed? Walking reduces anxiety and stress. Need to lose weight? Walking briskly for at least 30 minutes each day causes sustained weight loss over a greater period of time that any other exercise.
