Obesity has become a national epidemic. For this week’s discussion forum, I’d like you to go to the CDC obesity web site and Let’s Move (https://letsmove.obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/) Please discuss which factors are likely to cause obesity, the potential health implications for our adults and children and what we can do to improve this situation.  Has the material that you have learned in class provided you with tools to promote healthier choices?
