REPORT FINDS THAT THERE IS AN INCREASE IN HEART DISEASES WHICH COSTS THE NHS ABOUT 1.2 BILLION POUNDS YEARLY
The British Heart Foundation hopes that more people will take on more active lifestyles this year.
Report by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) finds that over 20 million people in the UK are physically inactive and this increases the risk of heart disease which costs the NHS about £1.2 billion yearly.
According to the report, “inactive” is defined as not achieving the government guidelines for physical activity of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity a week and strength activities on at least two days a week, the BBC reports.
The British Heart Foundation report found that:
The average man in the UK spends about 78 days a year sitting
The average woman spends around 74 days a year, sitting
76% of people in England, when referred to rehabilitation after suffering a heart attack are deemed physically inactive
The causes of over 5 million deaths all over the world are linked to physical inactivity

Associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, Dr Mike Knapton, said:
“Levels of physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour in the UK remain stubbornly high, and, combined, these two risk factors present a substantial threat to our cardiovascular health and risk of early death.”
