The article focuses on a study that examines the factors contributing to the prevalence of childhood obesity which is predicted to result in increased cardiovascular disease risk. It is accounted that the amount of physical activity children do is related to the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors. The study has found that children and adolescents should have to spend 90 minutes in a day of least moderate physical activity to prevent cardiovascular risk factors, such as insulin resistance.
