Washington : Walking regularly improves the mood, fitness and ability to think in people suffering from Parkinson’s disease, says IANS.

“The results of our study suggest that walking may provide a safe and easily accessible way of improving the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and improve quality of life,” said study author Ergun Uc from University of Iowa in the US.
