body weightth WHO physical inactivity is the 4 leading risk factor for global Physical Activity mortality o causing 32 mil deaths globally per yr Types of Physical Activity 1 Aerobic exerciseDramatic increase in oxygen consumptionSustained exercise that stimulates and strengthens the heartlungs improving the bodys utilization of oxygen more than 2000 kcal a weeklowactivity expended fewer than 2000 kcal grps o Results least active had an increased risk of heart attack o Exercise benefitted men who smoked andor had a history of hypertension 35 reduction in risk of death due to cardiovascular diseaseMenwomen benefit but risk reduction for cardiovascular disease may be larger for women Lowers coronary heart diseaseResearch 305 studies w 399 274 indivs o No significant difference btwn
