Major killer diseases are diabetes, cardiac diseases, cancer of the colon as well as breast cancer. Physical work outs can help reduce most of the deaths that occur. Inactivity is known to accelerate most deaths. If the world can curb inactivity, then we can be sure of increasing life expectancy by some fractions.
A percentage of the heart-related diseases are brought about by inactivity. Some cases of diabetes are attributed to lack fitness exercises. The same is said of colon and breast cancer.
Problems like high levels of blood sugar, pressure and cholesterol can be reduced through exercise. Exercise reduces the possibility of contracting heart diseases.

Under the leadership of I-Min Lee, scientist at Brigham in the preventive medicine department did a calculation on PAF (Population Attributable Fraction), a physical inactivity risk factor contribution measure to diseases such as diabetes and diabetes. Findings on the PAF indicated the number of diseases likely to be reduced by eliminating the risk factor – thus, if everyone in the world decided to exercise regularly.
Along with his colleagues, Lee gathered information on the lack of exercise and the results of the 4 common diseases - type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, heart disease and breast cancer and the rate at which they occur. The team did calculate the PAF in 123 countries. The findings indicated that physical inactivity largely to blame for 7% of type 2 diabetes, 6% of heart condition and 10% of colon and breast cancers across the world.
