A recent study has revealed what many of us probably already knew, yet may finally encourage some of those out there to get up and increase their activity levels.
A sedentary, or couch potato, lifestyle can amplify a genetic disposition to obesity, but just walking briskly, and briefly, each day can cut that effect in half.
When you consider the other detrimental health effects obesity can be a factor of, like type 2 and 1 diabetes, heart problems, etc., its obvious that we need to drastically cut back our average 4-6 hours of TV consumption and spend more time exercising.
