Survey Warns of Health Risk Due to Brit Decline in WalkingAbout The Authors

22nd June 2012 06:31 - Health

Following the results of a Department for Transport survey which found a marked decrease in the amount of walking that Britons engage in, scientists fear that cancer rates in the UK will rise.

The survey discovered that the average person went on just 210 walking trips last year, which is a decline of around 28% compared to 1995, when every Brit walked an average of 292 times a year.

In addition, only 41% of British people were found to walk for at least 20 minutes three times a week or more.

Dr Rachel Thompson, of the World Cancer Research Fund, has revealed that more than 10,000 cases of breast and bowel cancer in the UK could be prevented each year if people increase the amount of activity they get.

She commented: “The fact that walking levels have dropped so far over such a short period is a deep concern because there is no suggestion that people have swapped walking for other types of activity.”

The Department for Transport survey further revealed that of the 960 trips Brits made on average last year, 64% of those journeys were made in a car.
