How Does Exercise Support Health Later in Life?

Insufficient physical activity causes around 3.2 million deaths worldwide each year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

These declining levels of physical activity may be due, in part, to an increase in sedentary behavior, heavy traffic areas, pollution, and a lack of parks and facilities.

For adults aged 65 and above, experts define physical activity as a combination of everyday tasks, such as work duties (if applicable), transportation, chores, and exercise they do during leisure time, such as walking, swimming, and gardening.
