London: A number of today`s children are putting themselves at risk of developing heart disease later in life by not exercising enough, says a new study.
The researchers at Skane University Hospital in Malmo, Sweden, also found that girls had a higher proportion of body fat than boys - 22.6 per cent compared to 16.2 per cent. But, by another measure of fatness, body mass index (BMI), there was no real difference. Nonetheless, the girls had a higher average resting heart rate than the boys, 85 compared to 80, British newspaper `The Daily Telegraph` reported. PTI
