Scientists: exercise during pregnancy reduces the risk of obesity in children
Academics from the University of Washington conducted an experiment where it was found that athletic activity during pregnancy reduces the risk of obesity in children.
It is noted that the study was conducted on pregnant rodents, who had increased physical activity using improvised means.
It turned out that the offspring of active mice did not gain weight at all, even after eating foods with a huge fat content.
The fact is that at the time of sports activity in the offspring, the amount of protein that is associated with brown adipose tissue increased.
This fabric is responsible for the transformation of fat into heat. In addition, brown adipose tissue retained a good thermogenic function, due to which metabolic problems were prevented.
