Walking 15,000, not 10,000, steps is optimal for health: Report

The Washington Times reports:
Congratulations on hitting your steps … oh wait, you have to keep going.

A new study suggests that tracking 15,000 steps, or walking about 7 miles, instead of the trendy 10,000, is the best bet for positive health, The New York Times reports.

Researchers with the University of Warwick England followed Scottish postal workers and found that those who walked their routes — clocking at least 15,000 steps — maintained a healthy weight, trim waistline, a normal metabolism and had no risk for cardiac disease.
