City Walk: Side Effects: Heart Health
Each year in the United States 600,000 people die of heart disease. Keeping your heart healthy can be as simple as adding some movement into your daily routine. Research shows that the benefits of walking for at least 30 minutes a day can help you reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. And as the simplest form of exercise, it's hard to make any excuses not to walk toward a healthier heart.
City Walk is a unique series that reveals the way walking is transforming cities across America, and in the process, re-connecting us to our bodies, our civic values and public space.
As the show explores the walkability of these communities, viewers will learn about American history by exploring culturally rich neighborhoods, stunning architecture, monuments and beautiful parks that have helped define the character of each city.
