Stagnant Brits struggle to walk more than a mile a day according to new research from Cancer Research UK’s Walk All Over Cancer campaign published today. On an average weekday more than half (52%) of UK adults walk a mile or less* and almost a fifth (17%) walk less than a quarter of a mile. Around a third (32%) of adults said a lack of time puts them off walking more while a quarter (25%) are deterred by bad weather. Being more active can have many health benefits, including reducing cancer risk. Regularly doing exercise that gets you warm and slightly out of breath, like brisk walking, could help prevent around 3,400 cases of cancer in the UK each year.
