Females less active

6th January 2009

UK research has shown that girls and women are "less physically active" than boys and men when they are at school and over the age of 70.

A study by Liverpool's John Moores University showed girls engaged in 6% less "vigorous playtime" than boys. Another study, by Bristol University, found that women aged over 70 were less likely to take more than 5,000 steps per day.
