  • Childhood Obesity

    If Body mass index (BMI) is more than 85%, will be considered as overweight and if it is above 95% it will be considered as the individual is obese. Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in the United States. It affects more than 30 percent of children, making it the most common chronic disease of childhood. This number has more than tripled since 1980. In 1980 to 1990 the Prevalence of obesity is 2.5 to 3.2 between the age of 4 to 17 yrs, surveyed 6697 individuals in 1980 and 5795 in 1990.

  • Childhood Obesity

    In Canada, obesity is second only to smoking as the largest preventable cause of death. 18% of the population is obese (having a Body Mass Index of over 30) and 50% overweight (with a BMI of higher than 24.9). Body Mass Index is based on the relationship between the height and weight of a person and should ideally be between 18.5 and 24.9.
  • Childhood Obesity

    While having a weight in overabundance of what might be normal for a specific stature is most usually a documentation of inordinate fat tissue, certain people might be overmuscled (for instance, weightlifters). Except for extremely uncommon bone infections, the thought of an individual's exorbitant weight because of being "huge boned" is a urban myth.
