EMAIL FROM PREVENTOBESITY.NET:
I’ve got some disturbing news to share with you. A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine projects that 42 percent of Americans will be obese by 2030.
That puts more than 100 million Americans — including today’s kids — at risk for diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
This week, HBO is premiering a four-part documentary on the consequences of obesity, the driving forces behind the epidemic and what we need to change in our society. Tonight’s episode focuses on childhood obesity, and you can watch it here for FREE.
The film is being streamed for free on our website. Please take the time to watch it.
Please, watch Weight of the Nation with your friends and family, and encourage them to join the movement to prevent childhood obesity.
In the coming months, we’ll be sharing significant actions with you and your friends to help prevent childhood obesity and make sure that projections as high as 42 percent never become reality.
It’s more important than ever that we work together to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic. We’ve got the tools to achieve a healthier world for our kids — all we need is YOUR help.
