Obesity In Children Causing Health Problems


Obesity In Children Causing Health Problems That Used To Be Only Adults Got

The statistic for obesity in children is rising and it is causing health problems that used to be rarely found in children.  Obesity can not only cause many health problems, it takes away from the quality of life.  I’d like to share this documentary that is very informative.  It can be helpful in understanding this obesity crisis and what it means to our children as well as adults.

Way Beyond Weight

Way Beyond Weight is a documentary about obesity, the biggest epidemic in the history that affects children.

For the first time children have the same disease symptoms as adults: heart and breathing problems, depression, and type 2 diabetes. All of them are based on obesity.

Worldwide, kids are heavier than they should be. And unhealthy. From Brazil to Kuwait, childhood obesity is becoming very common.

Why are kids carrying this extra weight? The industry, the marketers, the parents, the governments. Who is responsible for raising a healthy child?

Beyond Weight is a movie that seeks to answer those questions in depth. It interviews families, kids and specialists from all over the world.
