A report published last week in Pediatrics states that children’s kidney and thyroid cancers have increased in recent years.  Though still rare, experts wonder if the rising rates could be related to obesity.  Studies show increases in both kinds of cancer in adults and have suggested that the causes might be rising obesity rates.

Children obesity rates have also increased in recent years.  In Texas, 1 in 5 kids are classified as obese with the largest population being Latin-Americans.

This is absolutely unnecessary and reversible.  Fast food is fake food with ingredients that can lead to lifelong health problems.  Parents need to ‘man up’, take responsibility for how their children are fed, and lead by example.HappyWellfedChild
