Following the study of 683 Canadian adolescents (between 12-15 years), researchers found 24% decline in physical activity over the 12-years from adolescence to early adulthood. Young males are most likely to give up exercising compared to a modest 1.7% decrease in the overall activity levels among females.

However, it is important for adults to understand that physical activities not only keeps them active but also proves helpful in strengthening the immune system.

The study is published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
