Obese patients in Britain to dance

Dec 4, 2006 - 7:29:36 PM , Reviewed by: Priya Saxena
The cost could be upwards of $15.8 billion a year, including medical bills for diabetes, heart disease, depression and lost work.

 
[RxPG] London, Dec 4 - Obese patients in Britain may have to dance to improve their fitness level as a part of upcoming national campaigns to get people to take more exercise.

The department of health is going to introduce dance classes such as street-dancing and tango classes to counter declining fitness levels and prevent a national obesity crisis, according to the online edition of Daily Mail.

Ministers are preparing to roll out a campaign to get people to take more exercise across England and Wales.

A spokesperson for the department of health said a series of pilot projects around the country had demonstrated that 'physical activity interventions were cost effective and saved the National Health Service money in the long run'.

More than 14 million people in Britain will be dangerously overweight by 2010, the website said.

The cost could be upwards of $15.8 billion a year, including medical bills for diabetes, heart disease, depression and lost work.

The British government has recommended that children participate in at least an hour of moderate activity a day while adults should lightly exercise for 30 minutes five days a week, it said.
