Students Stand Up to Obesity in Study

By Kelley Luckstein

The childhood obesity epidemic could be curbed by kids learning, while standing up. At least that's what the Idaho National Lab (INL) and The Mayo Clinic hope to prove with a study at Hope Lutheran School in Idaho Falls…

 

Teacher Jim Oloff is noticing differences that have nothing to do with fitness…Oloff noticed the kids are more attentive in class. The Mayo Clinic said when kids pay attention, they learn more.
