USA – You think exercise will save you from obesity and if you happen to be a young African-American girl think again.

Researchers say that African-American girls between the ages of 12 and 14 don’t benefit from the same level of exercise as Caucasian girls.

Although there is no definitive reason, some believe it is caused by stress.

But that doesn’t make much sense because other research shows that African-American girls are less stressed than white girls.

Maybe that’s because African-American girls don’t obsess about weight.

Whatever the reason, just remember everyone is beautiful.
