 Child Obesity

"Child Obesity is Child Abuse!"
--Ron Jones, Child Health Advocate

"16% of American youth 6-19 are now overweight and 34% are at risk for becoming overweight."
--Centers for Disease Control, August 2007

"The prevalence of overweight adolescents 12-19 has nearly tripled in the past two decades."
--U.S. Surgeon General, December 2002

"In California, 26.5% of all children are overweight and 39.6% of all children are unfit."
--California Center for Public Health Advocacy

Another Obese American Child-STOP THE MADDNESS!

Obesity Surgery Triples Among U.S. Teens (MSNBC.Com)

Due to the increasing problems with child obesity in America, I have created a section strictly for child obesity resources.  Child obesity has nearly tripled in the last 30 years--this is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!  Help pass the word to stop child obesity.  Child obesity is the fault of adults--NOT children!  We all need to do more to take care of our future which is our children.  Don't assume that so many overweight kids are "normal" just because they are everywhere!

"We must live our lives in such a way that our children,
and their children after them,
will form a natural and lasting commitment to the vigorous life. 
Only in this way can we be assured that the spirit
and strength of America will be constantly replenished."
    --President John F. Kennedy, U.S. Official Physical Fitness Program Booklet, 1963
