A study finds 1 in 5 obese among 4-year-olds

I just notcied an article on Yahoo News that was quite disturbing. A new study conducted by the National Center for Educational Statistics claims that 1 in 5 obese among 4-year-olds. The study also suggests that this percentage is higher for American Indians.

I guess it’s true, obesity is going to be the next great problem America has to face. The problem is we live in a world where everyone wants quick solutions and instant gratification. Also, peole have the strange idea that more is always better.

This article was a reminder of how important it is to live a healthy, well-balanced diet.
