Physical Exercise during Pregnancy May Protect Offspring from Obesity
New research from the Washington State University finds that mice that performed physical exercises during pregnancy gave birth to offspring that were less likely to gain weight from high-fat diet later in life.
In the study, the scientists examined the offspring of mice that were engaged in moderate-intensity exercise for 60 minutes every morning during pregnancy. A group of offspring born from non-exercising mice was considered as a control group.
Lead researcher Jun Seok Son, a doctoral student, says: “Our data suggest that the lack of exercise in healthy women during pregnancy can predispose their children to obesity and associated metabolic diseases partially through impairing thermogenic function.”
