There's another benefit of exercise that can help women. It may prevent Kidney Stones.
Walking two to three hours a week could cut the risk of Kidney Stones by one-third. Kidney stones are on the increase, partly because of rising obesity. About 9% of people will get one sometime in their life.
The study involved 85,000 women that were 50 and older. Those who got the equivalent of four hours of light gardening or an hour of jogging each week had lower chances of getting Kidney Stones than those who didn't exercise.
