    10,000 steps a day: Fact or Fiction?

    Walking 10,000 steps a day is not necessarily the path to health. The Harvard Women's Health Watch reports new research that older women need only take 4,400 steps a day to improve their health. Although smart watches tout 10,000 steps as the universal standard for walkers to see health benefits, the number has little scientific backing.
