Lack of Physical Activity Will Cost $300B by 2030

The World Health Organization (WHO) released its first-ever Global Status Report of Physical Activity, citing some dismal statistics and urging intervention from governments across the globe.

By the numbers:

  • 81% of adolescents and 27.5% of adults don’t meet WHO’s recommended physical activity levels.

  • Among high-income nations, 70% of all healthcare costs will be spent on treating illnesses resulting from physical inactivity.

  • At the current rate, ~500M people will develop heart disease, obesity, diabetes, or other noncommunicable diseases this decade.
