The 2nd Module “ENCOURAGING SPORTS PRACTICE FOR ONE’S OWN PSYCHO-PHYSICAL WELLBEING AND TO CONTROL NATIONAL SOCIAL AND HEALTH COSTS” is now available.
After having addressed the issue of the educational importance of sport in the first module and having explored this issue with 2 Webinars, we proceed with the analysis of the costs and benefits of sporting practice.
In this 2nd module we will talk about how investing in sport saves on health and leads to less sedentary lifestyle. The savings on social health costs are known and proven in all researches in the world, it is a transversal result that is obtained at different levels. Prevention in the first place, but also therapy, reconditioning, reduction of relapses and all this is even clearer if we enter gender medicine.
From a European perspective, it is worth remembering that Italy can and must be the leader of this cultural revolution, being the country with the greatest life expectancy in Europe and the second in the world after Japan.
Suffice it to say that the 1% reduction of inactive subjects in Italy (about 215 thousand people) would bring an annual incremental benefit of 80 million euros in savings in healthcare costs, and 1.7 billion euros in the value of life ” safeguarded “.
