Abstract

Regular physical activity produces positive effects on both physical and mental health, improving general well-being. Changes in lipemia and blood pressure were found. On the contrary physical inactivity has been related to higher risk of obesity, diabetes and many other chronic diseases. The rates of adolescents performing physical activity for more than one hour a day at least 5 days a week, vary from 29.75% (15-year-olds) to 40.58% (11-year-olds). The trend is clearly inversely related with age. The rates of adolescents watching TV for at least 4 hours a day are: 15.66% (11y.o.), 21.90% (13y.o.), 21.7% (15y.o.) without gender differences. The rates of adolescents using computer for at least 3 hours a day are: 10.14% (11y.o.), 10.48% (13y.o.), 9.77% (15y.o.). Computer use is higher for boys.
