Childhood Obesity

By Steve VanWilliams
I have been teaching children martial arts and fitness for over 30 years! I have traveled, trained and taught all over the world and have found obesity in every social class, race and country. I must say though in America it has to be the worst. Over 1 in 3 children in America is overweight!! This is NOT acceptable!! Since 1963 the rate of children who are not just overweight but obese has almost quadrupled! What is going on with America? We have becoming so EXCEPTING of this epidemic and we should not. "Obesity—One Third of All Cancers are Directly Related to It"
We need to change this. I believe we need to change the parents first. Children with follow by example. If you are overweight and not very active chances are you child will be... Get out there an move. It will help your children.
