Obesity in our society today: We must stop it now or what is going to be our future?
Twenty years ago our country Started to realize that obesity Was going to be a dilemma We all would have to deal with. Have we met the credentials and goals set by Healthy People 2010…. I think Not!!!
As you can tell from this chart, obesity is on the rise for adolescents in America. Are we going to do anything to stop it?
What Are the Causes Of Obesity in our society today?
“According to data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), no state met the Healthy People 2010 objective of 15 percent, and 30 states were 10 or more percentage points away from the objective.” http://www.obesity.org/statistics/
"Physical education must have an aim as broad as education itself and as noble and inspiring as human life. The great thought in physical education…is to make the physical contribute its full share to the life of the individual."~ Thomas Wood, 1893 http://www.pelinks4u.org/
If we do not soon end this battle of obesity in our country, our children are in for a rough future. We have to maintain Physical Education in our society today. We have to encourage our children to play outside as much as possible. Instead of fast food, get back to eating home cooked meals. Limit the hours of video games played, make them read a book. Work out as adults so our children may learn from example. If we do these simple things, we will help with the battle against obesity!!!!!!
