A recent study confirmed that inactivity is twice as likely to lead to an early death than obesity, with the research revealing that people who engaged in moderate levels of daily exercise were 16% to 30% less likely to die than their inactive counterparts.
The study, which looked at the effects of obesity and exercise on 300,000 European men and women over a course of 12 years, has shown that a brisk 20 minute walk every day is all it takes to counteract the risk of premature death. Study leader Professor Ulf Ekelund from the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit at Cambridge University said: 'This is a simple message: just a small amount of physical activity each day could have substantial health benefits for people who are physically inactive.'
