IT has long been touted that 10,000 steps a day is the magic number you need to stay fit and healthy – but a new study shows fewer than 5,000 may be enough to see a benefit reports the BBC.
The analysis of more than 226,000 people around the world showed 4,000 was enough to start reducing the risk of dying prematurely of any cause.
Just over 2,300 is enough to benefit the heart and blood vessels.

IT has long been touted that 10,000 steps a day ... 5,000 may be enough ... 4,000 was enough ... Just over 2,300 is enough. Good luck.
