When I was a little bit younger, we hardly ever got the possibility to go out for eating. It was too rarely because my parents didn’t think that it was the responsible idea for spending money when we had the fridge- full of the meal. One more reason, according to which, we couldn’t go somewhere to eat was the unhealthy food in the restaurant, cafes and other places. Even in spite of the cheap prices and easy and convenient service, the fast-food restaurants have the certain reputation that they offer only grease-laden, unhealthy and high-calorie food. Taking into account the data from Google Maps, there are more than 50000 chains of fast food restaurants which are located in the United States of America.
When we will consider Idaho, there are over 2500 fast-food restaurants. 81 of them are collated in Boise. The statistic shows that with the growing of fast-food restaurants, lots of schools across the nation neglect proper the physical education from the Mississippi to Idaho. Today children are I the higher risk of having sleep apnea, hepatitis, cardiovascular disease, gallstones and other harmful diseases. Some specialists prove that in the United States of America the rates of the childhood obesity are considerably higher than it was in the beginning of seventies. But stil,l there are some ways that can increase these rates. Being an adult, I never saw the problem of fighting with the obesity in the States. Maybe it is because I wasn’t affected personally, but the issue is still the same. Now I understand and I am absolutely sure that there are some different ways of avoiding not only the obesity but also the consequences that come with the disorders.
It was period, between 1976-1980 when the obesity rate was 6.5 %. Later in 2009-2010 these rates increased to 18%. And it takes the children from 6 to 11 years old. As for the children from 12 to 19 years old, their rates increased from 5% to 18%. And this data was studied at the same time. So the question is which characteristics deem the child to be “obese”? The specialists say to determine the obesity with the help of calculation the Body Mass Index of any child. To whom who doesn’t know about this, it is the ratio of weight to height. It is not difficult to count, but still, you will know about the absence or the presence of some serious problems. Body Mass Index isn’t necessarily used as the diagnostic tool, but it can assist and help to identify some problems with weight for the people of all ages.
