Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer – Dr Catherine Calderwood – launched a new physical activity infographic at the Scottish Medical Leadership Conference in Glasgow this week.
It shows the importance of being active and highlights some of the benefits of physical activity. Did you know being active can cut the chance of developing Type 2 Diabetes by 40 per cent, cardiovascular disease by 35 per cent, and breast and colon cancers by 20 per cent?
Did you know that you should be aiming to do 150 minutes per week of physical activity? If that is too much, remember something is better than nothing and just 10 minutes at a time provides benefit.
