Lack of exercise as 'deadly' as smoking

ConclusionThis ecological study estimated the global impact of physical inactivity and models the theoretical lives saved if physical inactivity levels were to be reduced across the globe.This study serves to highlight the large and wide-ranging impact of physical inactivity on global disease levels and death.

The researchers therefore concluded that their estimates ‘are likely to be very conservative’. Using a more objective measure of physical ... read more..
