Walking to Work Cuts Obesity, Diabetes Risk

Active modes of traveling to work, such as walking or biking, were associated with a lower likelihood of obesity and diabetes, U.K. researchers found.

Compared with using driving a car or taking a taxi, walking to work was associated with a 20% reduced risk of being obese and a 40% reduced risk of diabetes, according to Anthony Laverty, MSc, of the Imperial College London, and colleagues. Those who cycled to work had a 37% lower risk of obesity and a 50% lower risk of diabetes.

One of the downsides of working from home.  So I suppose having my office down the hall from my bedroom increases my risk of obesity and diabetes.

Great.  Pass the chocolate please.
