During the pandemic, U.S. adults have on average exercised less, drank and smoked more, and spent more time in front of computer or TV screens, according to a study published Tuesday.
UCLA researchers surveyed American adults in October 2020 about five "lifestyle behaviors": exercise time, screen time, fast food consumption, alcohol drinking and cigarette smoking.
Compared with before the COVID-19 pandemic, exercise time decreased by 31%, screen time increased by 60%, alcohol consumption increased by 23%, and smoking by 9%.
