Link Between Childhood Obesity And Stiff Arteries
8-11 year-old children with more body fat and less endurance than fitter, leaner children have stiffer arteries at a young age. Stiff arteries are a hallmark of atherosclerosis, typically an adult condition in which blood vessels become clogged. “When children at a young age start getting diseases only adults used to get, it’s like the sky is falling,” said Dr. Catherine L. Davis. She already found exercise reduces inflammation, visceral fat (a type of fat situated between the organs), body mass index and insulin levels. Children who exercised showed improvement on virtually all of those measures after just 20- 40 minutes of daily aerobic exercise for 12 weeks. Medical College of Georgia, April 2010.
