Physical activity combined with less sedentary time helps prevent obesity

New research suggests a combination of more physical activity and less sedentary time is the best way to reduce the risk of obesity.

Scientists were surprised to find those with the lowest risk of obesity-related diseases had intermediate levels of exercise and sedentary time.
