The bigger the activity inequality, the higher the rates of obesity

The average number of steps in a country appears to be less important for obesity levels, for example.
The key ingredient was "activity inequality" - it's like wealth inequality, except instead of the difference between rich and poor, it's the difference between the fittest and laziest.
The bigger the activity inequality, the higher the rates of obesity.
Tim Althoff, one of the researchers, said: "For instance, Sweden had one of the smallest gaps between activity rich and activity poor... it also had one of the lowest rates of obesity."
The United States and Mexico both have similar average steps, but the US has higher activity inequality and obesity levels.

The researchers were surprised that activity inequality was largely driven by differences between men and women.
In countries like Japan - with low obesity and low inequality - men and women exercised to similar degrees.
But in countries with high inequality, like the US and Saudi Arabia, it was women spending less time being active.


アメリカってのは、歩数にも格差があるわけだね。で、で、活動量に格差があるところでは、デブが多く、また、男女の活動量の格差も大きい、と。

日本のように、デブが少なく、歩数の格差が少ないところでは、男女の運動量の格差も少ない、と。
