According to a medical journal, The Lancet, about five million people die due to their lifestyle of remaining physically inactive.  The couch-potato-approach kills these adults prematurely.  Medical research indicates that inactivity is a risk factor comparable to smoking and obesity, because lack of activity causes six percent of coronary heart disease, seven percent of type 2 diabetes (the most common form) and 10 percent of breast and colon cancers.  Among teenagers, remaining physically inactive is even more worrying, as they are neglecting the aspect of regular exercise and also becoming undisciplined.
