Study: Physical activity impacts child growth

from The City University of New York via Medical Xpress

Scientific Reports has just published an important new study by Hunter post-doctoral research fellow Samuel Urlacher. Funded by the National Science Foundation, Dr. Urlacher is a biological anthropologist whose research seeks to understand variation in human health, physiology and behavior through the lens of evolutionary theory. His recent study, "Evidence for energetic tradeoffs between physical activity and childhood growth across the nutritional transition," suggests that physical activity can considerably impact child growth and the deposition of body fat. The study also indicates that in economically developing societies, the behavioral shifts that come with increased technology and lifestyle change likely contribute to larger body size and increased obesity rates. more
