Since my last post focused on childhood obesity, I thought I would follow it up with this video which focuses on the epidemic of childhood obesity. In this video, Dr. Hyman discusses the obesity epidemic in relation to the research of Dr Ludwig, discussing key concepts such as the physical and psychological impacts that obesity has on children, the role of junk food advertising, processed foods, sedentary behaviours (such as watching television), suggestions on how to fight the obesity epidemic and some very alarming childhood obesity statistics. If you have any thoughts on the issues covered in this video, please let me know.
