New P.E. study demonstrates vigorous exercise can lower adolescents body fat, blood pressure

ince it naturally increases as adolescents age into adulthood, and high blood pressure is a significant risk factor for heart disease, stroke, heart attack and other serious conditions, he said. Controlling obesity cuts the risk of type 2 diabetes, which has risen alarmingly in American children over the past few decades.

The new study is not the first to examine the effects of physical education classes, but it is the first to show significant improvements in skin fold and blood pressure tests among older children getting more exercise in such classes, McMurray said. The chief reason seems to that he and his colleagues boosted the amount of exercise they asked children to do more than their colleagues had.

"Schools are looking for ways to improve children's academic test scores, and many have either reduced or eliminated physical education," he said. "Now physical education might not result in brighter kids, but it will produce more productive adults who face fewer health threats and health-care costs down the road."
