Really nice information on 'obesity symptoms'.

Recent statistics have shown that 16% of US children are suffering from obesity symptoms. Early diagnosis can help to get rid of obesity in children. The most genuine cause of obesity in children are their eating habits and lifestyle.

Active participation in outdoor sports, diet including vegetables and fruits are some tips to get rid of this problem for your child.

Unless you are blind, one does not need a doctor to tell them that their child is FAT. The cause of obesity is laziness. It should not be considered a disease.

If parents would stop killing their children with unhealthy convenient starchy and sugary foods; take the time to prepare really healthy meals and send them outside to play and ride their bikes, this problem would not exist. It's that simple.

The U.S. is a nation of gluttony, but mainly because the population hasn't learned how to eat sensibly, and they haven't been presented with healthy, natural non-GMO foods.

I can tell you that the Americans are a laughing stock around the world for their health and physique.... all because they consume what is put before us by food manufacturers, pharmaceutical industry, etc, etc. without thinking of what they could be doing to our bodies.

It doesn't matter your ethnicity, gender, age, etc. Basic common sense tells you to feed your child a fruit instead of a doughnut, water instead of soda, lean meat instead of fatty, baked foods instead of fried etc.
