    ACSM Lauds Resolution on NCDs at World Health Assembly

    Yesterday afternoon at the 66th World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva, Member States unanimously adopted and supported an omnibus resolution on NCDs. This groundbreaking resolution fulfills commitments made in the UN Political Declaration on the Prevention and Control of NCDs, and signals consensus on the three pillars of the global NCD architecture - action, accountability and coordination.

    The key decisions in the resolution are:
    To endorse the WHO global action plan for the prevention and control of NCDs 2013–2020; To adopt the global monitoring framework on NCDs, including the 9 global targets and 25 indicators; To develop a global coordination mechanism by the end of 2013 to coordinate activities and promote engagement of all actors in the global NCD response.

    Read the NCD Alliance statement that was given at WHA here. For the full resolution, click here and for the corrigendum of Appendix 3 in the action plan click here. These were the documents that were circulated in Committee A this morning. We understand that three additional countries were added to the list of co-sponsors. The resolution was unanimously adopted and supported by all Member States in Committee A, recommending the Health Assembly to adopt the resolution in plenary later this afternoon.

    Lack of Strength Training is Most Common US Health Vice
    Los Angeles Times
    Have you lifted weights today? Odds are, the answer is no. A new report on Americans' health vices says failure to do strength-training exercises is far more common than the more obvious bad behaviors of smoking, heavy drinking, being a couch potato and staying up way too late.

    Data drawn from 76,669 interviews taken as part of the 2008-10 National Health Information Survey show that 73.5% of Americans — nearly 3 out of every 4 — did not lift a single dumbbell, do a single push-up or take a single pilates class during their time away from work.

    Aerobic exercise was counted as a separate category, and Americans did better there — only 33.9% owned up to being “completely inactive” during their leisure time.
