Teens skimp on exercise, but not sodas: CDC | Reuters

Only about one in 10 U.S. teens is getting enough exercise and one in four has a soda a day, adding to concerns about obesity among American youth, government researchers said on Thursday.

A team at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked to see how many students were meeting targets for youth physical activity.

They found about one out of 10 U.S. high school students met U.S. targets for both aerobic and muscle strengthening activities set for the federal government's Healthy People initiative, a list of public health goals.
