NICE to promote physical activity23rd January 2008
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence last week published guidance to encourage physical exercise among the population of the UK.
The guidance is intended as a preventative measure against illnesses which may be caused by an unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle, such as heart disease. "Every day, planners, designers and architects make decisions that affect the way people live; what we are recommending is that they should do this in a way that makes it easier for people to be physically active," said Gillian Leng, Deputy Chief Executive of NICE.
