A study shows it is important for teenage girls to exercise. Researchers looked at 75,000 Chinese women aged between 40 and 70. The women who exercised regularly as teenagers were healthier than those who didn't. Teenage girls who did 80 minutes exercise a week had a lower risk of dying from diseases. The researchers said that in general, women live longer if they exercise for 15 minutes a day in their teens.

Doing exercise as a teen means a longer life, even if women stop exercising when they are older. Regardless of adult exercise, teen exercise reduces the risk of illnesses like cancer. Research says it is important to promote exercise in teenage years to increase longevity and prevent diseases later in life. Although the research was based on women in China, it is important for all women worldwide to exercise.
