the more active lifestyle of amish children appears to protect them against type two diabetes.

a new study finds amish children spend about an additional hour and a half a day in physical activity compared to non-amish children.

and the amount of moderate to vigorous activity ... which benefits heart health ... is twice that of non-amish kids.

researchers say these higher levels of exercise ... and a lower BMI translates to lower rates of type two diabetes.

most amish children walk to school, have household or farming chores ... and do not use computers or watch t-v.
