“Sloth Map” compares rates of inactivity in the population of different countries: Researchers surveyed 122 countries and ranked them by level of exercise, and the top three most “slothful” are somewhat surprising.
The medical journal The Lancet recently released a study that found that levels of physical activity roughly track patterns of development — people in higher income countries were the least active, with those in the UK and the US among the worst.
Researchers say physical inactivity is to blame for 1 out of 10 deaths globally, about the same rate as deaths caused by smoking.
