Britons fail to get daily exercise

1st February 2010

A survey carried out by the British Heart Foundation has found that two out of three people in Britain do not take half an hour of exercise per day.

The study of 2,000 adults also found that 44% of adults claimed they were 'too busy' to exercise but 75% said they thought they were healthy. Dr Mike Knapton, BHF director of prevention and care, said: "It appears the adult population has a disturbingly indifferent attitude towards exercise and how to lead a healthy lifestyle. People who are physically active are half as likely to die from coronary heart disease."
