Live in a walkable neighborhood, it may reduce your risk of diabe
A Canadian study finds that people who live in neighborhoods conducive to walking may be less likely to develop diabetes. The link is fairly simple: people who walk more are less likely to gain weight and thus less likely to develop diabetes.
The study took place in Ontario over the course of five years. Researchers studied residents who did not have diabetes in 2005 at the beginning of the study, made note of where they live and how walkable it is, and tracked who developed diabetes by 2010.
