People in Western countries have easier lives and worse health. If they even think about getting fit, they are going to go on a fad diet like low carb/keto, and spend hours on a treadmill, vs lifting weights or doing basic bodyweight exercises which aren't cool.
But I disagree a bit about injury risk. The spinal cord is extremely fragile.
Don't know about that. People I know who have worked manual labor jobs their adult life are broken down as they get older. One lady I worked with, who recently retired in her early 60's, had both knees replaced, shoulder surgery multiple times and a bad back. Your body is like a car and the more miles you put on it the quicker parts will wear out or fail. My mom is 70 and she never did any real manual labor her adult life and she has no physical issues at all. I know several other examples of both instances I just referenced. I know of many UPS drivers who have knee replacement and shoulder surgeries due to beating up their body on a daily basis.
