Childhood Obesity Levels Continue To Rise
Childhood Obesity Levels Continue To Rise0Obesity is well-known to be a significant contributor to poor health, the cause of many chronic conditions, and even early mortality. However, new research has shown that obesity levels among children are significantly higher than what they were 40 years ago.

The study, carried out at Imperial College London and published in the British Medical Journal The Lancet, featured over 1000 participants and examined over 130 million children. The study focused on the Body Mass Index or BMI of young people aged 5 to 19, finding that those classified as obese have increased over tenfold. The reasons for this are thought to be due to marketing and pricing strategies of large food corporations, which target children.

Lead author of the study, Professor Majid Ezzati spoke of possible solutions to the crisis, stating: “We need ways to make healthy, nutritious food more available at home and school, especially in poor families and communities, and regulations and taxes to protect children from unhealthy foods.”
