Obesity: Childhood, Teens and Adolescents

The problem of childhood obesity is considerably increasing recent years. Approximately 12.5 million, or 16 percent, of adolescents and children are obese. Obesity is among the easiest medical conditions to diagnosed but most difficult to treat. Unhealthy weight gain or obesity due to lack of exercise and poor diet is responsible for over 400,000 deaths each year. The annual cost to society for obesity is estimated at nearly $150 billion. Obesity children are much more likely to become obesity adults unless they adopt and maintain healthier patterns of eating and exercise.
