Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Global epidemic’ of childhood inactivity

All over the world, children are becoming physically less active, according to the WHO. Nearly four out of five children are found to have less physical activity than they are supposed to. Instead, they are sitting too long in the chair studying, watching whatever screen, or playing games. South Korean children are one of the least active among the 146 countries studied. The country is known for its hard-studying culture to get to prominent universities, and the children spend long hours studying in school, cram school and at home. Also, it is one of the most digitized countries, thanks to the high-tech giant Samsung. In general, boys are more active than girls in most of the countries. The World Health Organization says inactive children’s health, brain development, and even social skills are impaired. Physical activities include any activity that makes the heartbeat faster and the lungs breathe more, such as running, swimming, cycling, playing sports, and even walking. Aren’t these activities that children want to do?

As the world requires more brainwork than physical activity, Homo Sapience seem to be adapting themselves to the new world.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about how active today’s children are.
