Incidence

Doctors estimate that between 65% and 85% of the world's population fail to take enough exercise.  Two out of three children around the globe take too little exercise to improve their health.  This is particularly true in Westernized nations where higher standards of living, modern conveniences and urban environments make exercise unnecessary and less enjoyable.

Conditions that suggest Problems Associated With Lack Of Exercise:

Circulation

Coronary Disease / Heart Attack

Because it increases the risk for coronary artery disease by almost two times, a lack of exercise is nearly as dangerous to the heart as smoking, abnormal cholesterol levels, or hypertension.  Sedentary living is the fourth major cardiac risk factor.

Pain

Low Back Pain

Exercise that strengthens the abdominal musculature sometimes helps reduce low back pain.  Further, strenuous exercise involving significant movement of the lower back has resulted in pain reduction/elimination.
