 A new study published in The Lancet found that lack of physical activity causes nearly 10% of all premature deaths in the world, primarily due to cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers. Physical inactivity is responsible for an estimated 5.3 million of the 57 million deaths that occurred worldwide in 2008 and is comparable to the impact of well-known chronic disease risk factors such as smoking and obesity. In contrast, more than 1.3 million deaths worldwide could be prevented if more people got the recommended dose of this powerful drug that is 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity physical activity, such as brisk walking for 30 minutes, 5 days a week. Furthermore, if we could eliminate physical inactivity, the life expectancy of the world’s population would increase by 0.68 years. See details of the study published in Lancet
