Obesity vs inactivity
In a recent article published by sportsfeatures.com research published by the University of Cambridge discussing the correlation of lack of exercise and early death. The twelve year study on obesity and inactivity included 300,000 research participants.
The story quoted research done by Sports Marketing Surveys USA saying:
“Today, 28% of all Americans are totally inactive, based on research released by Sports Marketing Surveys USA. This includes not being active one time in the past year in 104 activities tracked by the Physical Activity Council. The trend for children is most disturbing: ten million children are totally ‘inactive’ and two-thirds of all children are ‘not active to healthy standards.’ Both numbers are increasing.”
This quote was only a portion of the research done by Sports Marketing Surveys USA. If you would like to see the whole report it’s available here through the Physical Activity Council: www.physicalactivitycouncil.com/PDFs/current.pdf
