Brisk walking for an hour a day dramatically reduces weight

A new study shows that people who are predisposed to obesity because of their genes can stop this genetic genetic effects by 50% when it catches Sports brisk walking for an hour a day.

Been monitoring activity practiced by the sample and its relationship to body mass and genetic genes.

And proved that each gene works on increasing obesity is associated with an increased body mass. But this effect decreases with people who have the highest level of physical activity, while the people who follow the way of life depends on sitting for long periods suffer significant effects with each gene for obesity.

He said researchers from the Faculty of Public Health at Harvard University said that "increasing periods of watching TV at 4 hours per day, increases the genetic effects by 50%."
Although the study does not separate the effect of different genes on the case of obesity, but it stresses that the human genes do not determine his fate absolutely.
