    It's really good exercise to buils bone density too. I have osteoporosis in my immeadiate family and see anurse regularly for checks, and she says walking is a great way to build up those bones. :)

    Oooh, how strange I was just reading yesterday that those vibrating plates (power plate?) are meant to be great for strengthening bones too. Apparantly they were developed as a form of exercise for astronauts and are found to encourage muscle and bone activity/strengthening.
