The New England Journal of Medicine states:

“For the first time in two centuries, the current generation of children in America may have shorter life expectancies than their parents, according to a new report, which contends that the rapid rise in childhood obesity, if left unchecked, could shorten life spans by as much as five years."
"17% (or 12.5 million) children and adolescents are obese." "VA has a 31% rate of obese children. The National average is 31.6%"
"83% of young people say they are “just about the right weight” or “slightly overweight.”
"Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States"
