We all know that we have two ears and one mouth so that we will listen more and talk less.
Now, latest finding shows that we are given two feet so that we can walk and walk aroung instead of being a couch potato. ~ LibangLibu

NEW YORK - Walks not only help older people stay physically fit, they may also be good for their brains, a new US study has shown.
The study, by a team of University of Pittsburgh researchers led by neurologist Kirk Erickson, suggested that walking at least 10 kilometres a week protected against age-related memory loss.
The results were published in Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
"Brain size shrinks in late adulthood, which can cause memory problems," said Erickson, who proposed further studies to determine whether, and what kind of, fitness training could help prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
