Britons are a nation of ‘desk potatoes’ with one in five admitting they remain behind their desk all day, a new poll has revealed.
Six out of ten take their car into work – despite more than a third claiming they would prefer to be able to walk to work
Brits today are too lazy to look after themselves, and it’s having a seriously detrimental effect on the health of the nation. That’s not just the opinion of a sensationalist newspaper, there is research to prove it:
Researchers for private health firm BUPA, who commissioned the study, also found the average Briton walks for only ten minutes a day.
Given that the research was commissioned by a private healthcare company who might profit from scaremongering people into worrying about their health, it’s not hard to see how the impartiality of the data might be compromised.
