What the Medical Cost of Inactivity is Really Doing

Recently released CDC data doesn’t project a good picture on the state of physical inactivity in the country. A study compiling data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) from 2006-2011 looked at insufficiently active, and totally sedentary individuals and found physical inactivity alone accounts for about 12% of aggregate health care costs in the United States, a whopping $131 billion. 572 kata lagi

Dr. Eowyn reblogged this on Fellowship of the Minds and commented:

We are awash in corruption, not just in politics and culture, but also in science, esp. medical science that is utterly corrupted by the pharmaceutical industry. Did you know that as many as 20% of Americans (1 out of every 5) are on psychoactive or mood-altering drugs for depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder and the like?
