According to the website Alliance for a healthier generation: Less than 60% of adults are physically active on a regular basis, and 25% aren’t active at all. Inactive individuals have a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. Looking specifically at California, 30.4% of our kids are overweight or obese.
