CHICAGO – One hour of moderate to vigorous exercise a day can help teens beat the effects of a common obesity-related gene with the nickname "fatso," according to a new European study.

The message for adolescents is to get moving, said lead author Jonatan Ruiz of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

"Be active in your way," Ruiz said. "Activities such as playing sports are just fine and enough."

The study, released Monday, appears in the April edition of Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.

The research supports U.S. guidelines that tell children and teenagers to get an hour or more of physical activity daily, most of it aerobic activity such as running, jumping rope, swimming, dancing and bicycling.

Exercise helps stop you being fat shocker!

Apologies but that kind of tickled me as much those scientists that proved indeed bumble bees could fly.

Between walking 1.5 miles occasionally home from school, gym, chores (cleaning, raking leaves, etc) and weekly dances, I think I was ok.

Modern kids? Not so much.

I need to do more. Found a new radio station. Gets me dancing more.
