Authors: Benjamin C. Guinhouya (University of Lille, France) 
Book Description:
During the past two decades the prevalence of overweight and obesity in children has increased rapidly worldwide. Together with the rising of childhood obesity, some adult-like metabolic disorders, such as the impairment of insulin sensitivity or hypertension, have become apparent already among school-aged children. As both a consequence and a contributor to the childhood obesity, the low-level physical activity of children, especially in the westernized societies, warrants attention. This book examines the value of physical activity in preventing and combating childhood obesity and its metabolic comorbidities. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical Press)
