Fighting Fat

Timeless Fitness Tip

We have an obesity epidemic that is causing diseases in people of all ages. There are entire wards in hospitals dealing strictly with diabetes in our children.

But Public Schools aren't the place for this.

Public school is no place for fighting fat

David Satcher, former U.S. Surgeon General, wants public schools to offer healthy foods as well as up to 60 minutes of physical activity a day.

Public schools were intended to teach the mind of our youth to read, write, do math, etc., so they could grow up, learn where their talent lies and from there, good common sense in everything would follow. It's fine if there's encouragement to exercise and eat "good-for-you" foods, but in reality, they play a small part in people's lives.

The defense against obesity must start in the home by developing, teaching and practicing healthy eating habits for your entire family - no matter our respective culture. Physical activity and healthy eating protect us from the health risks of obesity. Not any entity or even a particular food.

In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration could be one of the biggest, most corrupt entities that actually cause harm to our health and longevity. See The FDA: Culture of Tyranny?

Bottom line? Educated measures on exercise and diet can turn things around to the better of all of us - and to the future of our children. But not at the expense of taxpayers or dependence on government. Instead, with the simple use of basic common sense.

Suggestion. Get off facebook, turn off the ding-dong phone and get outside!
