EARLY TO BED FIGHTS OFF TEEN OBE­SITY

Sunday Herald Sun - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

Chil­dren who go to bed early are one and a half times less likely to be obese than those who stay up late, ac­cord­ing to a new study.

Although both groups got sim­i­lar amounts of sleep, night owls were twice as likely to be in­ac­tive and al­most three times as likely to spend a large amount of time par­tic­i­pat­ing in seden­tary ac­tiv­i­ties such as play­ing video games.
