As the school year winds down and kids look forward to summer vacation, this is the perfect time to focus on exercise and how it can affect childhood obesity.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30 percent of children in the U.S. are obese. This number has more than tripled since 1980, making obesity the most chronic disease of childhood. In 2012, the CDC released the results of a study that showed that the percentage of obese children between the ages of 6 and 11 jumped from 7 percent in 1980 to over 17 percent in 2012. The number of obese children from ages 12 to 19 went from 5 percent in 1980 to over 20 percent in 2012. These children are at a greater risk for serious health problems, like cardiovascular disease and diabetes, as well as many types of cancers and bone and joint issues.
