Higher Levels Of Activity, Lower BMI May Help To Protect Amish Children Against Type 2 Diabetes

No news here.
Old Order Amish children are much more physically active and three times less likely to be overweight than non-Amish children, which may provide them with some long-term protection against developing Type 2 diabetes, University of Maryland School of Medicine researchers report in the journal Diabetes Care.

The researchers found that Amish children in Lancaster County, Pa., spent an additional 34 minutes a day in light physical activity, plus another 53 additional minutes a day in moderate to vigorous activity compared to non-Amish white children living nearby on Maryland's rural Eastern Shore. The amount of moderate to vigorous activity, which is important to cardiovascular health, was twice that of the non-Amish children. The level of physical activity was inversely correlated to their BMI, or body mass index, which is a measurement of body fat based on a person's height and weight.
Type 2 diabetes is fat person diabetes, no matter if the fatty is an adult or kid.

How you get to be a non-fatty is your choice.

Eat less.

Burn more.

Either will work.
