ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the results of a systematic review of randomized controlled trials and controlled clinical trials aimed to determine the effect of school-based physical activity interventions on body mass index among children. He notes that the review's authors mention that results should not disprove the importance of promoting physical activity in schools. However, he comments that the review's results evoke concerns about tackling the epidemic of childhood obesity.
