Exercise helps even those predisposed to obesity

Posted:

ENGLAND (KWWL) -- We can all benefit from exercise, especially those at a high risk of obesity.

British researchers studied over 20,000 people, determining their genetic risk of obesity.

Those who had the most genetic variants for obesity inherited from their parents did have the highest body mass index.

But the at-risk people who were physically active lowered their obesity risk by 40-percent.

So it appears you can change your waistline's destiny.
