Inactivity epidemic reaches all-time high

Our partners at PHIT America.org have just released a new study on our nation’s growing trend of inactivity. Every year since 2007, more and more people studied report that they are completely sedentary, reaching a record high in 2013. You can read the disturbing study here. Because of the ubiquity of smart phones and video games, the study reports that people are moving their fingers, but not their bodies. Obviously, this inactivity leads to heightened obesity and, correspondingly, mortality rates. PHIT America is sponsoring legislation to increase physical education budgets in schools, and much more. Visit their website and find out how you can help them get our country back up and moving. Literally.
