A new study claimed that brisk walking in particular is more healthier that intensive running.
While both produce numerous benefits, walking cuts risk of heart trouble by a greater amount when the same energy is expended.

Researchers compared data from two studies of 33,060 runners and 15,045 walkers. For the same amount of energy used, walkers experienced greater health benefits than runners.

Running reduced the risk of heart disease by 4.5% while walking reduced it by 9.3%.
Walking also had a stronger impact on heart disease risk factors. The risk of first-time high blood pressure was reduced by 4.2% by running and 7.2% by walking.

First-time high cholesterol risk was lowered by 4.3% by running and 7% by walking.
The risk of first-time diabetes was reduced by about 12% by both walking and running.
