The decline of American’s health is a growing epidemic. A 2007-2008 study showed that 32 percent of adult men and 35.5 percent of adult women were considered obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The CDC also estimates that 17 percent of all children are now obese – more than twice the number of ten years ago.
A key contributor to obesity is a sedentary lifestyle brought on by increased time in front of the computer, playing video games, and watching television. A study conducted by the Mayo Clinic found that prolonged periods of sitting, even when interspersed with periods of intense exercise, were having a detrimental impact on people’s health.
In one study, adults who spent more than four hours a day sitting in front of the television had an 80 percent increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease compared with adults who spent less than two hours a day in front of the TV.
