Study: Good physical fitness does not protect children from obesity-related low-grade inflammation

The increased prevalence of childhood obesity has resulted in an increased incidence of sustained low-grade inflammation since childhood. Obesity is the key factor in increasing low-grade inflammation. However, high levels of physical fitness are thought to protect against obesity-induced health impairments. A study by the University of Jyväskylä and the University of Eastern Finland found that even good physical fitness itself does not reduce low-grade inflammation in children.
