1.4 BIL­LION IDLE PEO­PLE

New Zealand Listener - - THIS LIFE -

A World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion study has found that more than a quar­ter of adults – about 1.4 bil­lion peo­ple – did not do enough ex­er­cise to stay healthy dur­ing 2016. Based on self-re­ported ac­tiv­ity lev­els, the study found a third of women and a quar­ter of men were not ac­tive enough. This puts them at greater risk of heart dis­ease, type 2 di­a­betes, de­men­tia and some cancers.
