The persistent concern for childhood obesity is not going to fade away soon. Though many research studies have echoed the grave concern of obesity in young children, nothing substantial have been done so far to combat the looming threat.
Meanwhile, a team of researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine has reported that inflammatory response in young children of the age of 3, in reaction to the obesity, can lead to various heart diseases.
Further, the team has appealed that a mutual co-operation among the various sections of the society can help to combat this huge challenge.
If statistics are to be believed, obesity rates have increased by three times in young children as compared to two times in that of adults.
Working on the same line, a team of researchers from the universities of Newcastle and Wollongong has made an appeal to promote mutual co-operation between parents and their children in order to meet the challenge of eradicating the blotch of obesity from the society.
Further, another noble attempt in the name of “The Surgeon General's Vision for a Healthy and Fit Nation" is aimed at projecting positive image of obesity in the society, which is gripped by the unending woes of obesity.
