The more steps people in middle age walk a day, the less often they are diagnosed with hypertension and diabetes. This is evidenced by a new study, which was presented at the American Heart Association's Epidemiology and Prevention conference, the organization said in a press release.

The study participants who took the most steps per day had a 43% lower risk of diabetes and 31% lower risk of hypertension, compared with those who walked less.

In addition, in the women who participated in the study, every additional 1000 steps per day reduced the risk of obesity by 13%. The participants who took the maximum number of steps developed it 61% less often than those who took them the least. But for men, no such connection was found.

"Walking is a widely available form of physical activity, and the number of steps per day is a simple indicator and motivational factor that most people understand," said Amanda E. Paluch, assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts and author of the study.
