I am a senior at Durand High School and I am writing to inform you about obesity in the U.S. Obesity has more than quadrupled in the last five years in teens and in adults. I feel this number needs to go down a lot. A recent study shows that if you’re as obese as a child or teenager you are 10 times more likely to be obese well into your adult years.
These numbers scare me, we do not want our population more than half of it obese. So I am writing to encourage you to show this letter in your next edition of the paper, if you or someone you know is suffering from obesity, you may need to seek help, there are resources to get your weight down, you can go and work out at your nearest YMCA to work out if you don’t want to reach out publically with your weight, you can just help yourself by working out and eating healthier and if we get everyone to join in this, it will be a great thing for the world and the obesity rates will go down all over the place.
