British Scientists Say Things Are Moving at a Snail’s Pace.
British scientists' warning.
It would be interesting to know how long an ordinary human walks in total during life time.
On having asked themselves the same question, British scientists established: an ordinary
European during his/her ordinary life covers afoot 80,500 kilometres.
Prima facie (as the researchers use the Latin for
“at first glance”), it is quite a lot.
However, remember that the life expectancy is 80 years. In this case, every day we walk less
than 3 km on average and every hour of wakefulness we walk around 200 m.
No wonder why we suffer hypodynamia (the scientific
for “lack of motion” and deceases associated with it).
