Ridiculous Study of the Week: Physical Activity in Sick People

Okay, so you are not going to believe this, but:

Participants with chronic disease undertook 9% or 61 minutes (95% confidence interval: 57.8–64.8) less moderate activity and 11% or 3 minutes (95% confidence interval: 2.7–3.3) less vigorous activity per week than individuals without chronic disease. 

To be clear, it is not saying that those who exercise less may get more diseases. That would be interesting. No, this study says that people who are sicker undergo less moderate and vigorous exercise. No shit!

And that is why this is this week’s winner of of “Ridiculous Study of the Week”. Congratulations.
