Use your body or lose your health

On Diabetes Notes there is a post about the study that showed that many children don’t exercise enough, increasing the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Until recently, it was only found in over-40. Now, there are 1000 child cases diagnosed in UK. Maruthi, the editor of Diabetes Notes writes about this study:

A study has found that only 37 percent of the urban kids walk to school compared to 67 percent in the suburban areas. The study noted the relation between the decrease in the number of kids walking to school and the onset of type 2 diabetes. Many kids spend as much as four hours a day watching TV or with the computer.
