Fractures may be less likely in kids who exercise
Doctors say it’s never too early to start protecting against bone problems.
Swedish researchers followed more than 800 children for six years.
The kids had 40 minutes of physical activity a day during school.
The researchers documented reports of fractures and compared the results to those of a similarly-aged control group that had 60 minutes of physical activity over a week.
Children who exercised daily had about half as many fractures as those who exercised less.
They also showed higher bone density.
