I believe schools should also be responsible to increase the physical activities for the children. Obesity continues to grow all over the world. There is no real answer to the problem.
Obesity is the most distinct medical condition but the most difficult condition to treat. Obesity is the result of calorie imbalance. Obesity is commonly caused by overeating and lack of exercise although there are genetic diseases and hormonal disorders that can cause obesity. When children eat more than they need, the extra calories are stored in fat cells to use for energy later. If this pattern continues over time, they develop more fat cells and may develop obesity.
This could also harm the person’s posture, resulting in a hunched figure. Genetics are a common risk factor to obesity, whether it is the amount of fat your stores and where it is distributed or how efficiently your body converts food into energy. The obesity gene affects one in ten people. However, it ultimately depends on your lifestyle and eating habits. Unhealthy eating patterns the most obese people tend to follow include a high-calorie diet, eating fast food, skipping breakfast, eating most of your calories at night, and eating oversized portions... ... middle of paper ... ...e with the highest body mass index (BMI)—a measure of obesity—seemed to demonstrate a series of ‘fat habits’.” (via “7 Habits of Highly Obese People”) By working past these ‘fat habits’, obese people can rise up and overcome their weight issues.
(12) This is not surprising because as the United States industry food aggressively markets high-fat, high-sugar, super-sized food. Many schools dropped physical education, many children spend a lot of time playing computer games instead of playing sports and even fattening snacks food is sold onto campus. Family and school education on obesity awareness is the main path to decrease obesity epidemic among young people and children beside diet and physical exercises improvement. It is necessary to improve health education in American schools and families to help kids to be aware of obesity and obesity related diseases. The people choice of what to eat is a result of the excessive fat accumulation in their body that exposes them to obesity related diseases.
How Is Bad Food and Good Food Affecting People? Doing more exercise and eating healthier can change the obesity problem that young adults of this generation have. If people continue to eat unhealthy there could be permanently damaging to the body and that can lead to different diseases. Being obese can lead to having type 2 diabetes, a heart attack, heart disease, or stroke. If people decide to eat unhealthy and not care about the causes, it is their choice to decide whether these persons want to start eating healthy or stay the same and face the consequences of being overweight.
People of every gender, every age, and every race are at risk of being obese. Obesity rates in America have nearly doubled within the last twenty years. Something must be done not only to prevent obesity rates continuous rising, but also to dramatically increase the percentage of obese people in America altogether. The best way to begin a revolution in health in America is to start with the youth. The United States has the largest percentile of overweight children in the world.
Although the fast food industry is a largely linked to the growth of child obesity, they can not solely take the blame. A child is ten times more likely to become obese if his or her parent is obese. This is due to a combination of genetic factors and social environment the child has been accustomed to. Parents have the responsibility to teach their children that it’s not ok to eat fast food regularly. After all, the parents are the ones who buy the fast food for their children and drive the family to the restaurants.
Currently in America child obesity is a growing problem, that more and more children face everyday. Child Obesity is not something to take lightly, it is an unhealthy lifestyle that kids, and parents are choosing to live. Obesity today is an ongoing challenge, and there are many solutions and interventions that families can look into, to help their children overcome this obstacle.

On that note, I will help myself to seconds.” Today 's generation does not have a sense of clue of when to portion control their meals.
Childhood obesity it is a huge epidemic. The number of obese children in the U.S. has increased over the past years. The number has obviously also grown due to the video games, computers, and televisions, which are considered to be needed now-a-days, and have begun to take over the importance of exercising. The lack of exercise can lead to obesity, which approaches a lot of negative effects. Obesity puts these children at a very high risk of developing many serious illnesses like high blood pressure, asthma, and many more.
Childhood obesity is a serious and common disease that is becoming more and more popular for children to be obese. I will make some clarifications on these issues and give some reasoning behind it.

Obesity is classified by an excess amount of fat and a weight 20 percent above normal bodyweight (National Center for Obesity at a young age can be very dangerous (2010).
