Thomas J. Cieslek, a researcher with Brock University in Ontario, Canada, recently conducted a study of fifth-grade children and found that active children have fewer sick days than their non-active peers. The goal of his study was to analyze the physical fitness levels, stress levels, body-fat percentages, and immunities of the test group during a season in Canada when infection occurs in moderate to high rates.
According to the study, 22 percent of the boys and 32 percent of the girls do not engage in physical activity for at least three hours a day. In this group of kids, more sick days were taken than in the group of children who do participate in body movement for three hours during the day.
Which group would your child fit into? We hope the active and healthy one.
