Reports from leading organizations around the world are reporting that the current generation of children may be the first generation whose life expectancy could be shorter than their parents. The American Heart Association (AHA) is now stating that 25 million children and adolescents (age 2-19) in the United States are overweight or obese - that's nearly 1 in 3 American children. The AHA has also stated that "Most overweight children have at least one major physiological risk factor (besides overweight) for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high insulin or high blood pressure." Obesity is becoming a global epidemic and a serious threat for both children and adults.
