A University of Hong Kong and Department of Health study revealed that 20 percent of all deaths of people 35 and older were attributed to a lack of physical activity. In addition, a lack of physical activity increased the risk of dying of cancer 45 percent for men and 28 percent for women, and the risk of dying from respiratory ailments 92 percent for men and 75 percent for women.

According to a study by Duke University Medical Center, a sedentary lifestyle leads to increases in visceral fat, which accumulates around the organs inside the belly. The study showed an 8.6-percent increase in visceral fat in only six months due to lack of exercise; approximately four pounds per year were gained by patients who did not exercise. Insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease and other metabolic syndromes have been linked to increased levels of visceral fat, making a sedentary lifestyle very dangerous.
