It seems like science is always going back and forth when it comes to just how bad sitting all day is.
Like, we all know sitting for a living is bad, but is it really reallllllly bad? Or just pretty bad?
Some studies paint a very bleak picture of what sitting all day does to you and how there's nothing you can do about it, but a new study, published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, has shown us the light! There is hope!!

Science has done some incredible things in the past century, but no study could match the amazing results found in a recent look at food and taste.
A new study at Cornell university in NY took a look at the eating habits of 139 people at an Italian buffet at an upstate NY restaurant.

According to a new study, it looks like kids who are more physically fit are able to absorb more information and learn more things in school!
We'd say that's a win-win!
The study from the American College of Sports Medicine, found that fourth- and fifth-grade students who ran around and otherwise exercised vigorously for at least 10 minutes before a math test did muuuuuuch better than those who sat quietly before taking it!
Here's the super interesting part: the better the fitness, the higher the scores. Meaning, body size had almost NO role. Students who were overweight but relatively fit did way better than lighter, less-fit children!
What this means is this, according to the authors of the study:

Just because "an elephant never forgets," it doesn't mean that they've got the BEST long-term memory.
A new study has found that dolphins might actually have an incredibly powerful long-term memory.
Dolphins have a signature whistle, it's the call they make, which is basically like a dolphin version of a name..
