This just came out and I find it very interesting. It was a report on Canadian children, but I'm sure you'd find the same for American children as well. Kinda scary and one main reason to learn to eat healthy.
A report just out identifies Canadian children as ‘Generation H’, the H being for heart attack! This is an alarming trend as our children are developing major risk factors for heart disease at such a young age. In 1999, 37% of children between the ages of 2-11were overweight and 18% were obese. Children must change their lifestyle or one day join the 80,000 Canadians who die every year from cardiovascular diseases.
