Washington: Reduced physical activity may do little in explaining the increase in obesity rates among US adolescents, according to a study.Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health investigated concerns that the spike may be due to decreased physical activity linked with increased TV viewing time and other sedentary behaviours.
Wang revealed. "Our study suggests that more vigorous efforts are needed to help young Americans engage in adequate regular physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviors, which will help promote good health.“In addition, these findings may suggest factors other than physical activity, and sedentary behaviors such as unhealthy eating may play a more important role to help explain the recent increase in obesity."The study "How Active are American Adolescents and Have They Become Less Active" has been published in the online issue of Obesity Reviews.
