Health in the News: November 19, 2012 - Children and Exercise Intensity

edit: it was brought to my attention that the link was broken. it is now fixed. my bad.

So today sort of sucked. Car trouble and inconsiderate people are giving me a headache. I now remember why I used to walk everywhere with an ipod: not relying on vehicles and not having to speak to strangers. Anyway, my mood is getting better right now thanks to good coffee, comedy, and getting to see my wife in a couple hours. So on with the blogging.

This is my first health in the news post in a while. It was put on the back burner while I was finishing my thesis. I have more free time now so I'll be gradually getting back to things. Here's an article about children and exercise. The essence of the article is that, for children, intensity of exercise is more important that duration. Not surprising, children aren't getting enough vigorous exercise. Give this article a read and let me know what you think. click on the link below the photo.

Seriously, let me know what you think. I want to get more interaction out of my readers. I know that I have set this blog up as a resource, but I still want feedback. :)
