The Path to Obesity Starts in Kindergarten

Childhood weight plays a major role in future obesity, according to a study of more than 7,700 kindergartners. Researchers measured the height and weight of a cohort of children seven times during the course of nine years and found that those who were overweight in kindergarten were four times as likely as normal-weight peers to become obese by age 14. In fact, nearly half of all cases of obesity observed between kindergarten and eighth grade occurred in children who were overweight at age five. This major study suggests that efforts to curb childhood obesity need to start before children enter school.

Got Water?

The funny thing about water is that we don’t really think about it until we’re thirsty. Our minds are on other things—sports, taxes, Coca-Cola, the weather. But our bodies? They think about water more than we could ever comprehend. And how could they not? Almost all life functions rely on it, which explains why about 65% of the human body is composed of it. Water is as essential to life as the air we breathe and it’s ridiculous to think of it in any other way.
