Children's Health Article

With the rise in childhood obesity and diabetes, this article emphasizes the role of moderate to vigorous activity to improve health. 

"Physical activity seemed to be the main explanation for the differences in childrens’ adiposity. Every 10 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity was associated with 3.5 percent lower body fat at the end of the study, even after adjusting for fitness levels and the amount of screen time. This amount of exercise was also linked to a 4.8 percent increase in insulin sensitivity."
