A recentpost on the CommuterPageBlog looks at a new U.K. report suggesting that country’s increasing dependence on cars has contributed to obesity and climate change. The report, by the Institute for European Environmental Policy, offers American workers food for thought, especially since some companies are charging employees who don’t meet certain health criteria (see my recent post on the topic).
While walking may not be a cure-all, particularly for ailments beyond workers’ control, it can be a powerful preventative tool to improve health.
