Indian adolescents most active in the world: WHO

Dec 02, 2019 09:49 IST

The World Health Organization has revealed that four in five 11 to 17-year-olds across the world do not engage in enough physical exercise, failing to exercise for the minimum recommendation of 60 minutes a day. But adolescents in India are more active than their peers globally. The WHO states that factors like increased domestic chores for girls around the house and the focus on sports like cricket for boys, contribute to the increase in physical activity among Indians. The study was published in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal.
