We talked very briefly about obesity in class this semester, and the effects that it has on humans. This article shows how obesity rates have been climbing in the United States, and why this is an issue. This article also, asks the question on how to fix this problem, and that a big problem is the amount of exercise that teens are getting nowadays. I hate seeing that America is one of the most obese countries in the world, and I hope in the future, we start tending to it as a very serious problem, and make an attempt to resolve it. 12-05-2016 11:11am
