Q: If only 10% of us did this, Canada could save $150 Million in health care costs annually. What is it?
A: Become active. If 1 in 10 people became active in any way, we could reduce health care costs by $150 Million every year.
Healthier and more active lifestyles may generate considerable savings in health care costs. One study estimated there to be annual savings of 150 million dollars for a 10% reduction in physically inactive Canadians.2 So leading an active life benefits the individual as well as society in general.
