Ideas for a healthy body, mind and spirit.

Young Kids, Old Bodies

This is the title of a TIME (March 3, 2014) article about children having high blood pressure, fatty liver disease and diabetes. 32% of children ages 2-19 are overweight or obese and developing diseases that used to be only seen in adults. Due to this, they will have lowered life expectancy. This is a must read article if you have children or grandchildren in your life. Overweight children may develop fatty liver, cirrhosis of liver, sleep apnea, heart disease, kidney damage and diabetes. It is not just obese children that are risk – even overweight children are. The solution is as always health diet and exercise. Don’t let children in your life die young and disabled.
