Italy in the top 20 most sedentary countries in the world

Sedentarismo-CAPA

Following a study done globally and published in the British journal The Lancet Global Health, Italy ranks 19th in the top 20 most sedentary countries in the world. The research involved as many as 1.9 million people from 168 countries and found that more than 40 percent of Italians do not engage in regular exercise.

In total, there are 1.4 billion people worldwide who do not engage in physical activity above the recommended 150 minutes per week. This issue particularly affects women: in 2016, 32 percent of women do not move enough, compared to men who stop at 23 percent. Italy also shows the same trend, in fact women touch 46.2 percent and men 36.2 percent. Experts from the World Health Organization by physical activity they also mean home work, as well as walking and general leisure time pursuits.

Overall, 16 percent of low-income countries underperformed compared to 37 percent of high-income countries. The laziest countries were Kuwait, Samoa Islands, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq where more than half of the adults are not sufficiently active. Even in the United States, the United Kingdom and China, the results are demoralizing, as their people also move little.

According to theWHO, this is the correct definition of sedentary: “Any exertion exerted by the musculoskeletal system that results in energy consumption exceeding that of resting conditions.” Those who do not, therefore, reach 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 minutes of high intensity activity are considered sedentary. Physical activity not only helps us feel better about ourselves and our bodies, but also prevents cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
