In her latest blog post, Stacy explains that the media and fitness gurus frequently put increasing death rates down to lack of exercise. However, a recent study has actually shown that obesity due to inactivity is the new leading cause of death around the world.
She then announces that the NY Times Health & Science Blog recently published an article titled ‘The Couch Potato Goes Global’ which outlined this very serious and growing problem.
The article says that the total combined weight of humans is around two hundred and eighty seven million tonnes. One third of this obesity exists in North America, yet the country only makes up six percent of the planet’s total population.
To further this point, Stacy then discusses another study from Brazil. During this experiment, questionnaires asking people about their exercise levels were distributed around the world, with shocking results.
It reported that one and a half billion people around the world are almost completely sedentary, failing to meet the global minimum activity levels of twenty minutes of walking each day. Not surprisingly, the United States leads this pack.
“It may scare you to know, though, that we are setting an example for our kids. More teens and children are sedentary (and obese AND diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes) than at any time in history,” Stacy concludes.
