The Dutch are good at physical exercise
Wednesday 08 August 2012
The Dutch do well at taking physical exercise, a survey into 122 countries by the British scientific magazine The Lancet shows.
The Lancet looked at the number of people who take a minimum weekly exercise of at least 30 minutes and 20 minutes hard exercise three times a week.
The results show that four out of five Dutch people over the age of 15 do this amount of exercise. Just 18.2% do not achieve these targets.
Women do slightly better than men, with 15.2% of women saying they do not exercise compared with 21.3% of men.
The survey shows that Bangladesh has the most active population with only 4.7% not reaching the targets. Malta, Swaziland and Saudi-Arabia are at the bottom of the list with 70%.
