A three-year research project on the state of Czechs’ health conducted by Masaryk University concludes that poor eating habits and a lack of physical activity negatively affect people’s health as they grow older, with people over 50 at high risk. This concerns particularly natural age-related changes such as loss of muscle tissue, bone density and internal fat stored up around vital organs which progress faster due to a poor life-style. The research conducted on 3,000 people shows that Czechs over 50 generally get little physical activity, do not walk enough and often move at a slower pace than their fitter compatriots elsewhere.
