i-Newswire.com - Press Release And News Distribution - Children need 60 minutes of daily physical activity, expert panel says
www.i-newswire.com, 15 Aug 2004 [cached]
"The important thing is we have to get American children and adolescents active," says co-chair Dr. Robert M. Malina, research professor and an expert in growth and development at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas."The evidence is very clear that physical activity has decreased dramatically in the last 10 to 20 years," Dr. Malina says as the technology revolution of the 1980s produced more sedentary options for children while their caloric intake has essentially remained the same.
"Our children are just not burning up those calories today," Dr. Malina says of the obesity epidemic in children.
...
"Youngsters tend to get bored easily so they have to have variety," says Dr. Malina, who has doctoral degrees in both physical education and anthropology."In addition, youngsters like physical activities that are challenging."
Experts say much of the needed activity can be achieved at school with appropriate physical education, recess, intramural sports and before- and after-school programs."In this regard, CDC recommends daily quality physical education from kindergarten through grade 12," the panelists write."Both physical education and recess afford opportunities to achieve the daily physical activity goal without any evidence of compromising academic performance….Restoration of intramural sport programs and expansion of the school day for such programs in middle and high schools may provide opportunities for all students to be physically active."
"We need to educate teachers and administrators that physical education is important for youngsters," says Dr. Malina, noting that historically when concerns about progress in math and science emerge, physical education and art get moved aside."The evidence is clear, a renewed emphasis on physical activity in our schools will not have a negative impact on academics," he says.

"The evidence is very clear that physical activity has decreased dramatically in the last 10 to 20 years," said Robert Malina, an expert in growth and development at Tarleton State University in Texas and co-chairman of a panel that spent more than a year reviewing the impact of physical activity on children's health for the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Malina contends the technological revolution of the 1980s was a leading factor in making children more sedentary while their caloric intact has essentially remained the same."Our children are just not burning up those calories today," he said.
According to the CDC, 16 percent of children ages 6 to 19, or about 9 million, are considered overweight, and that number has tripled since 1980.

"Youngsters tend to get bored easily, so they have to have variety," said Malina, who holds doctorates in both physical education and anthropology."In addition, youngsters like physical activities that are challenging."
The experts said much of the needed activity could be achieved at school with appropriate physical-education classes, recess, intramural sports and before- and after-school programs, noting that the CDC recommends quality daily PE from kindergarten through grade 12, and that there is no evidence that such programs deter from academic performance.
"We need to educate teachers and administrators that physical education is important for youngsters," said Malina, noting that when concerns about progress in math or science emerge, physical education and the arts get shunted aside.
"The evidence is clear - a renewed emphasis on physical activity in our schools will not have a negative impact on academics," he added.

"Differences among athletes of elite caliber are so small," notes Robert Malina, Michigan State anthropologist and editor of the Journal of Human Biology, "that if you have a physique or the ability to fire muscle fibers more efficiently that might be genetically based ... it might be very, very significant.
