The Chinese government has been taken in by the calorie myths about obesity and have announced that schoolchildren will have to run at least 1km a day

Chinese schoolchildren must run one kilometre a day, government says
Article in the Telegraph


"The programme kicks off on October 26 and students are expected to have to complete their runs in their break times. The sports departments of provincial governments will enforce the scheme, which will continue until the end of April.

Chen Zhiyong, an official at the General Administration of Sport, said schools will arrange where the students can run, but races along busy roads will not be allowed.

The government is concerned by a rapid increase in child obesity after a report last year from the Health ministry showed that urban six-year-old boys are 2.5 inches taller and 6.6 pounds heavier on average than 30 years ago.

China's increasing wealth has led to the wider consumption of meat and a more sedentary lifestyle.

"The speed of the increase greatly exceeds the growth trends found in Western developed countries," said Yang Qing, director of the child health department of the Health ministry."

Exercise has many health benefits for many people, but it has no effect on reducing child obesity, as you can read in this article from the Guardian: Glasgow University Study finds that increasing exercise does not reduce child obesity.

This is because obesity is not caused by eating too much or by exercising too little. - It is caused by fluid retention. Fluid retention occurs when people who are sensitive to salt eat salt or salty food. When overweight people, including overweight children - and overweight pet dogs, cats and rabbits as well - cut down on their intake of salt and salty food they easily and swiftly lose some of the excess weight as they shed excess fluid from the body by way of extra urine from the bladder.

Lose weight, reduce fluid retention, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
