    I agree with almost all of this but, many could argue with getting increases test scores.
    For example, if someone sits at home with their nose in some kind of math book, will the people playing outside score higher than them on a math test?

  2. Noah says:

    I personally disagree with it because well how could being active get you money unless you are an athlete otherwise I say it’s a bunch of baloney

  3. marrie says:

    to be honest, i think this is rather strange yet truthful, someone could be a great athlete, yet still get pregnant, or have a lot of risky sex, but in some aspects its honest, because if you like exercise, then you are possibly gonna make more money.

  4. jordyn says:

    I agree with the part that says” active parents associated with there active kids” that part is very true and most of it is true

  5. Madison says:

    I think that that image is really powerful because it is so true and it is really interesting. 🙂

    I think the graphic thing is very shocking when you were reading it out loud I was so surprised.Can’t believe it kids in there 16 are already having kids doing drugs wow.

  7. Isabella says:

    I believe all of this is true! If you look around, all of those ideas are valid. Staying healthy is very beneficial in many different ways (as you can see), and they’ve gotten proof from anyone that is healthy!

  8. Jennifer says:

    I believe all this is true. when people be active it makes them happy and when they are happy you work better and every thing is easier. I knew before that when you work out it does you well but I didn’t know it was so helpful

    I think this is true because childhood is about getting good grades in school, watching what you eat,being active then as you go on to high school its all about being accepted, doing foolish things like drugs, parties, and sex. And as you go on in life you’ll have to get into college, get a job, buy a house, find love, have kids then it just start over for your children.

    I think that this chart is very interesting. But what startles me is how some of those results work. For example my uncle went to university has a well paying job did great in school and has no medical conditions what so ever, yet he is considered obese. I do agree with being active is better but where do these results come from. And if annual salary is that much different then that is just wrong. Unless the job requires physical ability. I think that there must be a different cause, maybe being obese directly relates to being lazy or something. So maybe if you’re are lazy all of those things happen. But being lazy generally makes you obese. Because otherwise that would just be stereotypical. But I am not saying all obese people are lazy, that would be stereotypical.

  11. COLBY says:

    I agree. Everyday I go out I’m seeing more and more obese people. The world is unhealthy.

  12. Liesl says:

    This graphic really emphasizes the importance and benefits of exercising and how it impacts your daily life. To be honest, I know that you’re generally happier and may do fairly well in school if you’re athletic but I had no idea that it could have a correlation to your future job efficiency or your earnings. I also thought it was neat to see how your genetics play into your athletic abilities and urge to be active. I guess this is where the expression “The apple doesn’t fall from the tree,” is really implied. To know all of the advantages about exercise really inspires me to work out all of the time, which obviously isn’t that healthy but I think if other people were to see this they would at least be a little moved and shocked by it.

  13. Kai says:

    This image tells me how important being active means. I didn’t know that if you are active you get 40% better grades. I don’t think that’s really true because that has never really happen to me. Getting 7-8% more income is weird because I would think that all the people working at their job would get the same income but I thought wrong.

  14. Copter says:

    I think that chart is very interesting, strange but truthful, Most moms that are active and exercise a lot influence their children to exercise more often. I think that’s very true. And also I think that the reason they have lower health cost is because they exercise more often and they’re healthier so they have less medical problems.

  15. Aurora says:

    I disagree that you will do better on tests because it depends on how you listen and learn.
    I don’t know how to react to the smoking thing because a lot of professional athletes smoke and do drugs, even though I totally disapprove about it, it’s still true. Being an athlete is good for your learning but it depends on who they are and if they even like school if they go to college or not. I disagree on the earnings because maybe they have a job that doesn’t have anything to do with physical activity and do the same as someone else but earn more. Lower health costs are only because they might not go to the hospital or not. It totally depends on what job they have if they’re more productive or not. I do agree that there is a lower risk of diseases.
    The End

  16. Aurora says:

    Sorry, I meant they might not go to the hospital as much as unhealthy people.

  17. Savi says:

    I think that these ideas are both true, and in some ways, not true. For example, I don’t see how being physically active can benefit your grades. Personally, I think that you can do very well on a test regardless of how physically active you are. But I do think that being active will generally make you happier, and it could potentially prevent you from smoking and drugs. I’m not too sure about the pregnancy and risky sex thing though. So yeah! 😀

  18. Kyle says:

    I agree, with most of the things but I could see how most people could get upset over there 40% test score because they might be nervous to bring there test home and thinking they will get in trouble.

  19. Alison says:

    I totally agree with all of these things, especially “Lower Health Costs”. The reason being is when your active it reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diebetes, like it said in the graghic. I was surprised to read on the graghic that, kids of active moms are 2 times more likely to be active. I agree and disagree on that because, most of the time, yes, kids are going to be 2 times more likely to be active, but kids with active moms might not be active as well.
