Childhood Obesity

Currently one-third of American children are overweight or obese, and because of it, for the first time ever, the current generation of children is expected to die younger than their parents.  15% of American teens are obese, an increase of 300% from the 1960s.  Children are getting fatter at an alarming rate. 

In the vast majority of cases, overweight and obese children are not that way because of muscle mass.  Overweight and obese children just have too much body fat!  Along with earlier risk of heart failure, arthritis, and many other diseases, too much body fat is the number one preventable cause of diabetes.  Type II diabetes, traditionally known as a disease that afflicted older overweight and inactive adults, is now being seen in children as young as 5.

The estimated lifetime risk of type 2 diabetes is 35 percent for all children born in America today, 50 percent for Hispanic and African American children.  A recent study showed that many adolescents who develop type 2 diabetes require amputation and kidney dialysis before their 30th birthday.  Many diabetics go blind from the disease.  With an estimated lifetime medical cost exceeding $100,000 for anyone diagnosed with diabetes, we could be looking at an major epidemic that could bankrupt of our Medicare system.

The health effects of obesity are well known: heart disease, diabetes, stroke and other chronic problems that cause premature death. The earlier you catch an excess body fat problem, the easier it will be for your child to change and the less damage the excess fat will cause on his or her body.  The time for your child to lose body fat is RIGHT NOW!
