Childhood Obesity and Adult Weight Loss

I was impressed when I learned that First Lady, Michelle Obama has taken on childhood obesity as her focus for 2010.

However,  I would really be really excited and encouraged if her focus also included an greater awareness and more education about the increase of children who are over weight and are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

Today, while I was waiting for my chiropractic adjustment at Dr. Randy Horning’s office I noticed a shocking sign on the wall that halted my “Green Brain” processing, until read the sign aloud…

“For every 10 pounds you are over weight.
 you add 40 pounds of pressure to your joints.” 

That’s a huge amount of pressure. I also learned the 68% of Americans are over weight. Another reminder that obesity is linked to heat attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, depression, cardiovascular disease and, of course,Type 2 diabetes.

This also got me thinking about the medical device exhibitors I met when I presented my Brain Color Workshops at the AOHP national conference last September. EZ Way, Inc., Dane Technologies, Inc. and  PHS West, Inc. all manufacture devices to keep health care workers and over weight patients safe.

Weight loss is a call to action for Americans to encourage the people we care about to lower the numbers on  the scale, which will lower health risks, medical cost and  insurance premiums!

Let’s tip the scale towards better health for children and adults!
