"A 2001 study published in Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise found that sedentary women with high blood pressure reduced their systolic blood pressure and body mass by walking 9,700 steps per day at a self-selected pace for 24 weeks." SP trivia section today.
I was in another study, done by the attorney general in 2001. It was for "non-sedentary" people. I was in the hospital at the time, and researchers asked people there to participate. Basically the studies said the same things, 10,000 per day is the workout thresh hold, 12 thousand is the weight loss thresh hold. There are many workout trends based on full blown fraud. This was an attempt to actually come up with real numbers for the government.
