Believe in a Healthy Newark Initiative
CDC released a new study, which found that 8% of deaths in the U.S. were associated with inadequate levels of physical activity. This percentage varied with age; the study attributed 10% of deaths among adults age 40-69 and 8% of deaths among adults age 70 or older to low levels of physical activity. This article supports previously published findings that conclude low levels of physical activity increase the risk of premature death.
It also highlights the importance of regular physical activity. Following the aerobic physical activity guideline (at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity equivalent physical activity each week for adults) can significantly reduce the risk for dying early, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and depression.
