The Number One Public Health Threat to Florida's Future Is Unhealthy Weight. Break The Cycle.
The following information is courtesy of the Florida Health Department.
"According to the FL Department of Health 65% of adults in Florida are at an unhealthy weight and 1 of 3 children is overweight or obese. The number one public health threat to Florida's future is unhealthy weight. Currently, only 36 percent of Floridians are at healthy weight. On our current trend, by 2030, almost 60 percent will be obese. Additionally, six out of ten children born today will be obese by the time they graduate high school.
Over the next 20 years in Florida, obesity is expected to contribute to millions of cases of preventable chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer, costing an estimated $34 billion. To address this important public health issue, the Department of Health launched the Healthiest Weight Florida initiative in January 2013."
It's time to break the cycle folks... Don't allow yourself or your children to become a statistic. There is another way.
