Adolescent Obesity

I have learned that African Americans and Mexican Americans are more likley to be over weight. The percentage is 21% and 23% and the percentage for white Non hispanics is 14%. For adolescents that are over wieght are at risk for type 2 diabities, high cholesterol, hypertension, respiratory ailments, orthopedic problems, depression or evan cardiovascular disease. Long term they will have a 70% of being over weight as an adult.

Adolescent Obesity


Elizabeth Seville


Specific causes for the increase in prevalence of childhood obesity are not clear and establishing causality is difficult since longitudinal research in this area is limited. Such research must employ long study times to discern if there is an interaction of factors leading to an increase in the prevalence or the prevention of obesity during childhood and adolescence.
