A new research published in Sweden has claimed that lack of activity in early adulthood tends to increase the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes in the future."The current physical activity guidelines for children and youth recommend 60 minutes of exercise daily. [...] Currently, only about half of U.S. children and youth meet these guidelines,"lead author, Dr. Casey Crump said; the study also suggests that physical activity in youth will reduce the risk of the disease regardless of genetics and BMI or being overweight or obese.

The expert and his team used analysis obtained from Swedish military conscripts; more than 1.5 million young men were included in the analysis."Individuals with low fitness early in life may also be more likely to have unhealthy lifestyle factors as adults, which contribute to the increased risks we observed,"Dr. Crump continued, “not only were both low aerobic and muscular fitness linked with a higher long-term risk of diabetes, but this was true even among those with normal body mass index.” Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the country, check out the video below to learn some of the warning signs
