Walk, Don't Die: How to Stay Fit, Trim, and Healthy Without Killing Yourself
Dr. Stutman is one of the world's foremost authorities on the medical benefits of walking as an exercise. As a medical officer in the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Stutman established one of the nation's first walking programs for heart attack victims. He has done extensive research in the fields of exercise physiology and cardiac rehabilitation in private medical practice and at the U.S Naval Air Development Center. Dr. Stutman has written a total of seven books on walking and has had hundreds of articles published on the medical benefits of walking, giving him the honorary title of "DR. WALK" by his patients. In Walk, Don't Due, Dr. Stutman presents solid irrefutable medical evidence on how jogging, strenuous exercise, fad diets and sedentary life-styles can cause disease, disability and even death. Walk, Don't Die, also shows how walking controls weight, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and tension, retards cancer, prevents heart disease and strokes, and slows the aging process. "If you want to live an additional 15, 20, even 25 years, then you'd better start walking as if your life depended on it -- It does!" Book jacket.
