CDC Study: Most Adolescents Not Meeting Physical Activity Guidelines

Only 1 in 4 U.S. children between the ages of 12 and 15 meet recommended physical activity levels, according to a new report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC researchers used 2012 data from the combined National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and the NHANES National Youth Fitness Survey.
