Exercising During Pregnancy Protects Mouse Offspring
Exercising During Pregnancy Protects Mouse Offspring
Obese mice that exercised while pregnant gave birth to pups that grew up free of the metabolic issues present in the adult young of sedentary obese mothers—possibly by staving off epigenetic changes to a key metabolic gene.
