There are numerous governmental warnings, some quite scary, on the effects of not exercising; we have summarized some of the more recent studies below.

The National Health Service in the UK provide an exhaustive list with the percentage increase in probability form not taking exercise.

    To quote from this page; it's medically proven that people who do regular physical activity have:
  • up to a 35% lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
  • up to a 50% lower risk of type 2 diabetes
  • up to a 50% lower risk of colon cancer
  • up to a 20% lower risk of breast cancer
  • a 30% lower risk of early death
  • up to an 83% lower risk of osteoarthritis
  • up to a 68% lower risk of hip fracture
  • a 30% lower risk of falls (among older adults)
  • up to a 30% lower risk of depression
  • up to a 30% lower risk of dementia

USA, EUROPE, ASIA, SOUTH AMERICA

In the USA there is a similar message on the government web sites. The Harvard School of Public Health provide an excellent detailed overview.

The World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe is calling for greater national attention to be focused on physical activity as a tool in health promotion and disease prevention.

Similar reports exist for China, South America and Asia.
