Ten times more children and teens obese today than 40 years ago

The number of obese children and adolescents rose to 124 million in 2016 -- more than 10 times higher than the 11 million classified as obese 40 years ago, in 1975.

A further 213 million children and adolescents were overweight in 2016, finds a new study published Tuesday in the Lancet.

Looking at the broader picture, this equated to roughly 5.6% of girls and 7.8% of boys being obese last year.

Most countries within the Pacific Islands, including the Cook Islands and Nauru, had the highest rates globally, with more than 30% of their youth ages 5 to 19 estimated to be obese.

The United States and some countries in the Caribbean, such as Puerto Rico, as well as the Middle East, including Kuwait and Qatar, came next with levels of obesity above 20% for the same age group, according to the new data, visualized by the NCD Risk Factor Collaboration.

"Over the past four decades, obesity rates in children and adolescents have soared globally, and continue to do so in low- and middle-income countries," said Majid Ezzati, professor of global environmental health at Imperial College London in the UK, who led the research.

"More recently, they have plateaued in higher-income countries, although obesity levels remain unacceptably high," he said.

Over the same time period, the rise in obesity has particularly accelerated in East and South Asia.

"We now have children who are gaining weight when they are 5 years old," unlike children at the same age two generations ago, Ezzati told CNN.

In the largest study of its kind, more than 1,000 researchers collaborated to analyze weight and height data for almost 130 million people, including more than 31 million people 5 to 19 years old, to identify obesity trends from 1975 to 2016.

"Rates of child and adolescent obesity are accelerating in East, South and Southeast Asia, and continue to increase in other low and middle-income regions," said James Bentham, a statistician at the University of Kent, who co-authored the paper.

Obesity in adults is defined using a person's body mass index, the ratio between weight and height. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is classified as a healthy weight, 25 to 29.9 considered overweight and 30 and over obese. Cut-offs are lower among children and adolescents and vary based on age.

"While average BMI among children and adolescents has recently plateaued in Europe and North America, this is not an excuse for complacency as more than one in five young people in the U,S. and one in 10 in the UK are obese," he said.

Once that full feeling of the soda leaves the victim, the potato chips are gone and result in increased cravings.

You could consume thousands of calories and get nothing in terms of feeling any fuller as soon as the soda leaves you.

This situation is a diabolical trap and it is enslaving and killing too many people. Of course the truth is played down like boring nerd type stuff that you don't want to know.

The way they play down the truth makes you think maybe you don't need or want to know about it. To explain why this truth is so important you have to contradict years and years of exposure to commercials and billboards showing you beautiful actors of their crap acting insanely delighted to consume these things.

Again, it's diabolical. The world of alternative facts. JUST LIKE OUR FUCKING JUNK POLITICS FOX AND ALL THE REST OF THEM SHIT DOWN OUR THROATS EVERYWHERE YOU GO.

Many investors and speculators put money into the junk food industry because it always returns a profit.

Think of the misery and death these products cause.

You need to do better than to wish death on the poor people who seem to be the ones who somehow end up eating the poor food choices.

Capitalists cast blame and curse the victims of their deadly slave traps because these people do not have a voice to fight back against the injustice and the blood money keeps flowing. --yeah really this is happening in so many different ways.

Open eyes!


Oh yeah, those mean capitalists sold junk food to the poor at gunpoint. The poor just had no choice but to buy a ton of junk food. All they wanted to buy were apples and oranges.

You say that as if some apes couldn't be tricked into eating something that taste good - and pay for it.
And as if it's ok morally to do it.

You have to take responsibility for your own actions. Same goes for alcohol, smoking, drugs, fast food, excessive shopping, and hundreds of other vices.
I would personally support high taxes on all of above, but that's about it.

MANIPULATING AVAILABLE CHOICES is the biggest racket. Yet another absurd statement on your part failing to portray the opposing position. You guys only mock yourselves but you don't think anybody can see it.

The reality is that poor people eat poor food, they have poor access to good food and many are poorly informed too and live under generational poverty because poverty is a fucking trap. Fucking homeless people wind up paying outrageous prices for just about everything they need ESPECIALLY their meager housing. --but even you fucking knew that too, EVERYBODY knows that. You want to argue over whether or not shit is brown? --I don't have any time for you.

Working 2 or 3 crap jobs the poor end up eating cheap and convenient food too much, the portions are typically unhealthful for competitive reasons too. Less access to personal transportation really screws up people's available choices too. And the pricey stores of course are not located in the poorer areas, more like "Food For Less" stores and "Savalot."

Good food is on the pricey side, higher end neighborhoods tend to be very aware of healthy choices for some reason and they tend to prepare better food too and is best prepared at home but when you're working your ass off for poot and going to Trump U, because they needed hope and believed the fat prick, poor typically do not choose to spend their time cooking and cleaning up often enough.

But you knew that and chose to say something absurd.

Total nonsense. I shop at Walmart and see the obese poor stock up on junk food and sodas, when there are fresh fruits and vegetables on sale. Are there people who are so stupid, they do not know an apple is good for you? Maybe if they did not drop out from school they would have learnt something useful. And what about the parents? don't they teach anything good to their children like hygiene, good morals and eating habits?

Maybe they should not shop at 7-11 for their booze. And what housing do they pay outrageous prices for... if they are fucking homeless? Did the cost of cardboard boxes suddenly shoot up?

If they work 2 or 3 jobs why are they homeless? How can "Food for less" be pricey, when it says "food for less" I've shopped there in the past, it's not pricey. Try Walmart, it's even cheaper.

Good food is NOT pricey. It's cheaper. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables will save you money.

To sum up your BS, you are telling us:
The homeless work 2 or 3 jobs
No one told them what healthy foods are
Shop at "Food for less" which is too expensive, and they never see healthy fruits and vegetables there.
Sign up for Trump U, paying tens of thousands of dollars, to learn how to flip homes. Yet they are homeless.

Those are good examples.

I watch 1950's B&W episodes they have on this one cable channel. The really great ones like Alfred Hitchcock, Perry Mason, 77 Sunset Strip, Peter Gunn AND EVERY SINGLE SCENE of every single episode portrays tobacco and alcohol consumption as a normal and even preferred mode of social interaction among fashionable people.

It's just astounding the influence tobacco and alcohol had on television and everything back then. They show every desirable person/model in every enviable situation using their poison as if it were the ticket to heaven on earth.

After Americans got the class action suits going the heavy advertising promotions went overseas, again exploiting any weaknesses they encounter, and now, for example, you have first graders in Indonesia addicted to smoking cigarettes.

Then there are the cheesy sales models they use

I would tax cigarette prices so much that the poor cannot afford it. You still have to take responsibility for your own actions.

Those shows were an accurate portrayal of American life (and probably European as well) then. I have a photograph taken in the Heidelberg Room of the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas in 1948 where my parents were celebrating their 25th anniversary--there are four people in the frame, my parents and a younger couple at another table--both the man and woman at the other table and my father are smoking--he would die of lung cancer in ten years at only 59. Probably 75% of the people in that restaurant were smoking, too. I sat in a Cadillac showroom in 1963 talking to a lady probably about 50 while she awaited delivery of the brand new Coupe de Ville on the showroom floor. I asked her how often she traded and she said "honey, whenever the ashtrays get full!". I could only imagine what her trade-ins smelled like and wondered how many more years she would trade in her Cadillacs.

Have you ever been behind a EBT shopper and see what they're buying for "food" on your dime?? It's total crap and processed food. It's THEIR choice to buy that crap.

They could by real fresh food and cook for less than half the price and make their EBT amount last a lot longer. Will they do that? Hell no?


Hey, can you blame them? Potato chips and soda taste a lot better than apples, salad and juice. Besides, they don't have time to cook. They are too busy catching up with the soaps, and it's really hard to cook when you had too much beer.
Sniper, you are so insensitive to the losers. Why can't you be more like Jazz?

I remember flying on TWA with ashtrays built right into the arm rests on the end seats. Stewardesses even sold these little packs that held about 5 cigarettes each. You remember those Lockheed L-1049 Constellation? Incredible! And there was free booze on flights too, or practically free.



But no, every single thing you see in a movie happens for a reason. There was huge ubiquitous money subsidizing those product placements, i.e. alcohol and tobacco, into EVERY SINGLE scene possible. "Please to meet you, can I get you a drink?" "Got a light? ... bla bla bla"

This was PSYOPS. Every conceivable premise to inject the product into the action where you have a sophisticated leading man image, like young Ephram Zimbalist Jr. ... he was the number one "Joe Cool" of the late 1950's and early 1960's. Watch him light his pipe up as he looks so dashing and sets to work solving the amazingly difficult criminal plot.

Lawsuits made them cut all that shit out too somewhere around 1965.

Now we got rampant political outrage and hate instead of alcoholics and lung cancer. Media is still controlling our minds, worse in fact now that we must become mobilized to overcome the corruption that assures the increasing inequality. This particular shit storm is not going to go on like this for very much longer.

In US, 57 percent of kids on track for obesity by 35: study

More than 57 percent of children in the United States will be obese by age 35 if current trends in weight gain and poor eating habits continue, researchers warned Wednesday.

The risk of obesity is high even among children whose present weight is normal, said the report in the New England Journal of Medicine.

"Only those children with a current healthy weight have less than a 50 percent chance of becoming obese by the age of 35 years," said the study, led by researchers at Harvard University.

Some 36.5 percent of the US adult population is now considered obese, a condition federal health officials define as having a body mass index of 30 or higher.

The study was based on a simulation model that predicted future trends based on height and weight data from five nationally representative studies of more than 41,000 children and adults.

"Obesity will be a significant problem for most children in the US as they grow older," it said.

"Of the children predicted to have obesity as adults, half will develop it as children."

Weight gain in a child's early years is particularly hard to reverse in adulthood.

Researchers found that among obese toddlers aged two, three out of four will also be obese as adults.

Children with severe obesity -- which affects 4.5 million children in the United States -- face only a one in five chance of being normal weight adults.

Racial and ethnic disparities in weight are already apparent by age two, with black and Hispanics more likely to have obesity than whites -- yet another trend that persists into adulthood.

You may look into the past but right now on television we are subjected to the drug industries successful effort to hook every one on a dozen medical prescriptions.
look around we are being poisoned by the pharmaceutical companies.
