One health epiphany from yesterday’s post

childhood obesity
(Homer Simpson imitation) ummmm, caaaake

Okay, so we all agree that there’s a serious childhood obesity challenge. Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years:

  • 6-11 year olds: from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008
  • 12-19 year olds: from 5% to to 18% same time frame
  • in 2008, more than 1/3 of your 6-19 are overweight or obese

Why? Tomorrow…
