Over 35% in India low on physical activity

Bulgaria WHO 1.4 Billion Risk Disease from Lack of Exercise

The study conducted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) says that the richer nation that enjoys a comfortable life with nearly no physical activity is more at risk have about a third of women and a quarter of men worldwide are living under a risky risk of heart disease, diabetes and even Cancer.

The health problems associated with inactive exercise, according to the report include heart disease, type-2 diabetes and some cancers.

The WHO said that there has been little progress worldwide in improving physical activity levels between 2001 and 2016.

The new Global Action Plan on Physical Activity sets the target to reduce physical inactivity by 10 percent by 2025 and 15 percent by 2030.

-More than 1.4 billion adults across the world have an increased risk of disease because they are not exercising enough, The Lancet Global Health reports in a new study.

Yet among the global population, one in three women (32 percent) and one in four men (23 percent) fail to meet these requirements.

In the United Kingdom, inactivity levels in 2016 were 36% overall - 32% of men and 40% of women.

In four territories (Kuwait, American Samoa, Saudi Arabia and Iraq), as many as half of all adults were found to be dangerously inactive.

Shahid will soon be seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu and will begin work on his new film, a remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy . Shahid Kapoor's mother Neelima Azeem, brother Ishaan Khatter and Mira Rajput's mother were seen at the hospital earlier.

The study tracked activity levels of 1.9 million people in 168 countries across the world during 2016.

"Unlike other major global health risks, levels of insufficient physical activity are not falling worldwide, on average, and over a quarter of all adults are not reaching the recommended levels of physical activity for good health", said the lead author, Dr Regina Guthold of the WHO.

The transition toward more sedentary occupations and motorized transportation in richer countries could help explain the higher levels of inactivity, researchers said.

Walter R. Thompson, an associate dean and a professor of kinesiology and health at Georgia State University, said that the study's most important point is that "physical inactivity is pandemic and not a characteristic of low-income or high-income countries".

This is compared to global figures in 2016 with indicates that 27.5 percent of the world population aren't getting enough physical activity.

About three-quarters of countries have a policy or action plan to increase physical activity among its citizens, but few have been implemented or made a substantial impact, Dr. Fiona Bull of World Health Organization, a co-author of the report, said.

The study suggests that living in a high income country, you're twice as likely not to get the exercise you need (36·8 percent), than in a low-income country (16·2 percent). Declines in physical activity are inevitable as countries prosper and use of technology increases, they say.

The study found people were less active by income - 16 percent for low and 37 percent in high. As a next step the researchers would work on assessing the levels of activities among the children and youth.
