32% of young US citizens are obese - Chera McCabe

Postby matthewwhite011 » Sat May 11, 2013 10:50 am

I found this post very interesting and a bit of alarming. This is about the obesity problem in younger US nationals.

A new poll released today shows a large a gap between parents’ perceptions of their children’s weight and expert definitions. According to their parents, 15 percent of children are a little or very overweight, while national data suggest more than twice as many, or 32 percent of all children, are overweight or obese. The poll was conducted by NPR,the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).
