Another Pet Peeve – Although the National Center for Health Statistics survey “hinted” that childhood obesity might be leveling off it appears in California (I would have to assume it is in other states too, are we not the capital of tofu) that the rates have DOUBLED since 1980.

 Definition – Obesity is a condition characterized by the excessive accumulation and storage of fat in the body.

This disgusts me, how can parents let their children get to the level of obesity (not just overweight)? We preach about drugs, alcohol and smoking but yet the big gulp is a staple for many kids! Yes, we can blame video games but parents do have the ability to say NO so don’t even go there. It is time to stop the fast food circuit, cut down on video’s and actually cook a decent meal and then play some kick ball with your kids. Sorry, no excuses on this one.
