Stanford Study Ranks Indians Among World’s Laziest People

Indian Among World’s Laziest

Most Indians are said to be lazy, of course, it’s right. Nowadays, to move anywhere even nearby streets, all are using vehicles. People were busy to take a walk.

According to the researchers, the news has popularized that a person should take at least 10,000 steps per day for health purpose or regard weight loss. It was suggested by Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke.

Among 46 countries Indian was shown as the laziest country in the world. And it was ranked 39 with people averaging 4,297 steps a day. It has known by finding of a study by Stanford University researchers. This process is done by installing step-counters in most of the smart phones to track the walking activity about 700,000 people in 46 countries all over the world.

The least lazy population in the world are Chinese, particularly Hong Kong where people walk 6,880 steps a day; it is published in Nature Journal. The worst nation was Indonesia where people take average steps of 3,513 per day. The worldwide average is 4,961 steps and American walk an average of 4,774 steps a day.

The countries which stood top in the chart are Hong Kong, China, Ukraine and Japan taking 6, 000 steps daily and the countries which stood least in this category are Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia who walk very less than 3,900 steps a day.

According to data, Indian women walk very less compare to men. Indian women walk 3,684 steps daily while men walks 4,606 steps daily. The study found that for both males and females, a larger number of measures recorded in associated with lower obesity, but for women, the prevalence of obesity increases more rapidly as step volume decreases.

Delhi-based dietician Ritika Samaddar suggests at least 10,000 steps a day to remain fit, “People feel that if they have walked for an hour in the morning, they have got their share of physical exercise done. But you need to be active throughout the day.”

So after this all, a question is left out, is this the reason Indians are more overweight than Chinese? Stanford University says the country with fewer obesity people walks for more time in a day.
