I read an article in the paper today that talked about the dangers of obesity. They are numerous:
- heart disease
- joint pain
- high blood pressure
- high cholesterol
- sleep apnea
- at risk for asthma
- at risk for developing cancers of the colon, breast, prostate, uterus, and others (just spotting rumors is more difficult in an obese person)
Only 12% of parents think their child is overweight when studies show that over 30% of children and teens are overweight or obese in the US.
It is never too late to start to make a change. I’m 53, and I’m doing it. You can, too!
