Investing in bicycling and walking could save lives

The Alliance for Biking and Walking has released it's 2010 benchmarking report. The report is described as:

"Bicycling and Walking in the U.S.: 2010 Benchmarking Report is an essential resource and tool for government officials, advocates, and those working to promote bicycling and walking. The Benchmarking Project is an on-going effort to collect and analyze data on bicycling and walking in all 50 states and the 51 largest U.S. cities."

It concludes that where bicycling and walking levels are higher, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes levels are lower.
