Inactive kids get old before their time

Wednesday, November 12, 2008 Posted by Travis Saunders
Here is a very interesting news article that I came across last night. The article and accompanying video suggest that the neck arteries of obese children actually look like the neck arteries of 45 year olds, and not surprisingly, these obese children also have a host of metabolic risk factors. In fact, the article is very reminiscent of the recent ParticiPACTION ad campain "Inactive Kids Get Old Before Their Time" (click here to see the videos). Not surprising information, but one more reminder of the dramatic health effects which often accompany obesity.
