New WHO-led study says majority of adolescents worldwide are not sufficiently physically active, putting their current and future health at risk

World Health Organization (WHO)

The first ever global trends for adolescent insufficient physical activity show that urgent action is needed to increase physical activity levels in girls and boys aged 11 to 17 years. The study, published in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal and produced by researchers from the World Health Organization (WHO), finds that more than 80% of school-going adolescents globally did not meet current recommendations of at least one hour of physical activity per day – including 85% of girls and 78% of boys.

University of Southern California (USC)

Being overweight increases the chances of premature death, said Jonathan Samet of USC. His statement is backed by a four-continent effort involving 239 studies and data from 10.6 million people. The study — one of the largest to date — runs counter to the results of a JAMA, which found that being overweight actually adds to one’s life span.
