    I’m curious about the data that goes with the statements of “walking improved by a factor of two” and “muscle strength improved significantly”. What do those mean? Did you go from walking 5 min/day to 10 min or 5 miles to 10 miles? Did your strength go from lifting 2 pounds to 6 pounds or are you benching your body weight? Can you provide the data that supports this article?
