BOSTON - Many experts recommend a goal of 10,000 steps a day for improved fitness. Now new research backs that up.

A study by JAMA Neurology found that walking about 10,000 steps a day, which is about 4-5 miles depending on your stride, was associated with a lower risk of heart disease and stroke, 13 types of cancer, and dementia. 

Walking at a faster pace is even better. 

But don't worry, if you can't get 10,000 steps in daily, walking any distance at any pace will still provide some health benefits.

BOSTON - There's no doubt that the COVID vaccines continue to save lives but a woefully low number of people have received the recommended boosters.

An analysis by the Commonwealth Fund found that if 80% of those eligible to receive a booster dose do so this fall, we could prevent about 90,000 deaths and almost a million hospitalizations in this country over the next six months. 

We could also save $56 billion in medical costs. 

However, if people continue to resist getting boosters at the current rate, we could experience 1,200 deaths a day by March.

WORCESTER - A World War II veteran received a lifechanging gift on Thursday.

"We always had a good time. We played hockey every Sunday and we'd come back here and have a big meal," said John Burke, reminiscing on a life well spent at his home in Worcester. 

He told WBZ-TV he bought his house in 1970, at a price of $15,000. He and his late wife Claire lived here with their eight children. He says the house was always very lively, to say the least.

"We were quite a crowd here. We had a good life here. My wife and I enjoyed it," said John.

These days, it's much quieter. At 97-years-old the World War II veteran and retired teacher lives here alone.

His son Richard pointed out the damage that was done by a leaking roof, a problem being fixed thanks to the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project.

"He qualified for this home improvement project and they are gracious enough to supply all of this free of charge," said Richard.

Red Dog's Roofing Site Supervisor Matthew Barnes said, "We partnered with Owens Corning and Habitat for Humanity, and we are redoing his roof for him and giving him a brand-new roof. It's a great thing to give back to another generation, another family."

According to Red Dog's Roofing, replacing a roof of this size would normally cost someone $30,000. To the family, maintaining John's independence is priceless.

"When I told him what was happening it actually brought him to tears," said Richard, adding, "at least this will be peace of mind for the family that the roof over his head is safe."

"I'm very thankful. It's not very often you get something for nothing. I mean I appreciate it," said John.
