ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on arthritis as a cause for physical inactivity among adults with obesity aged 18 years and above. Data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance (BRFSS) survey in 50 states in the U.S. from 2007 to 2009 were collected and evaluated. Physical inactivity was highest among those with both arthritis and obesity (22.7%), followed by arthritis only (16.1%), and obesity only (13.5%).
