Modern children run slower than their parents

The American Heart Association published a study on the speed of generations.According to scientists, modern children run slower than their parents in their youth.

Proceeding from logic (we should note), and our parents in their youth ran much more slowly than their parents in their youth, and those in turn were not as agile as their parents. And so on and so forth, down to the cavemen, who probably ran very fast, especially after chasing a mammoth or running away from a saber-toothed tiger.

All this,According to American scientists, due to a decrease in cardiovascular endurance, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.

“In fact, from 30% to 60% of cases of reduced endurance during running can be explained by an increase in fat mass,” said lead researcher Dr. Grant Tomkinson.

Scientists believe that children in our time are critically lacking physical activity, which affects not only the number and speed of kilometers traveled for the test, but also the general health of the body and life expectancy.

According to scientists, at least one hour of physical activity per day is necessary for children and adolescents to maintain their health. At the same time, an hour of classes per day is not enough, if the rest of the time they move a little.
