Study found the reasons why physical activity helps prevent health problems caused by poor nutrition.

Study developed at the University of São Paulo (USP) unveiled part of the metabolic mechanisms by which physical activity helps prevent health problems caused by poor nutrition, such as diabetes and fat accumulation in the liver.

For the research, tests were performed in mice that received a diet enhanced with chocolate, wafer cornstarch, sugar and peanuts. The diet, called Cafeteria, was intended to mimic human eating habits, explained Fabiana de Sant'Anna Evangelista, coordinator of research funded by FAPESP Research Assistance in Regular mode.

To verify that the physical activity was indeed able to prevent this situation, the animals underwent a training program for two months, which included one hour one of aerobic exercise on the treadmill at moderate intensity five days a week.

Standardized diet in a previous study and found that after six weeks of this feeding the animals had already developed a framework for glucose intolerance, insulin resistance and obesity, said the researcher.

According to the researcher, the next step now is to better understand the impact of exercise on metabolism of skeletal muscle tissue to unravel cooperation between adipose tissue and skeletal muscle for the prevention of metabolic diseases, he said.
