Point to Ponder

Obesity is such that this generation of children could be the first, basically in the history of the United States, to live less healthful and shorter lives than theirparents.

David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD
Director of the Obesity Program
 Children's Hospital, Boston

In most cases, obesity is preventable. It represents a lifestyle of too little exercise, too little portion control, and too little emphasis on eating nutritious foods in as natural state as possible. Obesity is linked with at least 50 chronic conditions and diseases—many of which are preventable. The World Health Organization has referred to obesity as a global pandemic.

There is little worse than watching your child or your grandchild die before you do—yet it is happening all over the world, especially in the United States. Vaping isn’t helping, either!

The studies are clear. Lifestyle matters. What are you choosing? It matters for your health but also for the health and longevity of your children and grandchildren. They watch you and your lifestyle. Embrace and live a longevity lifestyle for yourself and then serve as a role model for those you love. It matters.
