CDC: More people walking, but less meeting 150 min/wk

8-23-12: Some new data about Americans and PA just came out from the CDC:

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, based on a telephone survey from 2010, found that 62 percent of adults walk 10 minutes or more a week, up from 55.7 percent in 2005.
However, only 48 percent of adults exercise enough to improve their health, which was up from 42.1 percent in 2005, the CDC said."
So while the percentages are improving, we still have a long way to go in getting more Americans meeting the minimum recommended 150 mins. cardio per week goal.
