World Health Organization: The risk of cancer, heart attack, diabetes increases when people do not exercise enough
The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that a quarter of the world’s population has not exercised enough. WHO said that the risk of getting serious illness increases when people are not exercising properly.
According to WHO, around one and a half billion adults around the world can die because they are not physically active enough.
The research pioneered by the Health Organization and published in the Lancet Global Health magazine was made from nearly two million participants.
According to the survey, the number of people exercising between 2001 and 2016 has increased slightly.
The WHO warns that people who do not exercise and exercise adequately increase the risk of heart attack, dementia, cancer, and Type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Worldwide, one out of every three females and one out of four males could not reach the level of physical activity seen as healthy. Experts recommend that you exercise at least 150 hours per week or at least 75 hours per week if you have a busy schedule in 2016.
Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Iraq were among the countries where more than 50 per cent of the adult population live a still life and the highest risk of getting sick.
Approximately 40 percent of adults in the United States do not exercise adequately. This ratio is 36 percent in the UK and 14 percent in China.
Increasing physical activity in the study has also shown that muscle building improves heart and breathing, strengthens the bones, and reduces the risk of hypertension, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, depression and some types of cancer.
