Women Less Active than Men

Presenting at the UK Society for Behavioral Medicine’s annual conference, researchers claim both young girls and women over 70, aren’t as active as their male counterparts. In children, boys tended to play very physicals games and run around like mad men, but girls spent more time in smaller groups, engaging in conversation, verbal games and socializing. In older folks, exercise levels were down among both genders. However, men did more intensive activities, but rested more. While women engaged in lower intensity activities, like housework, for longer intervals; The BBC News investigates.

Staying active and exercising is important for everyone, especially women. Exercise can help build stronger bones, staving off osteoporosis.

So men exercise more and harder and live shorter lives than women who exercise at a lower intensity level and we're supposed to do what? Exercise more?
