More and More Babies to Fat

Chubby cheeks and dimpled thighs have long been a mother's
proof of a healthy, well-fed baby. But those roly-poly infants now
may be a sign of something much different: America's growing
problem with weight.

Even babies under 6 months old are more likely to be overweight
today compared with those 20 years ago, a study of Massachusetts
children found.

Fewer than 1 in 10 babies was found to be too fat, but the rate
was still up substantially from two decades ago. That's worrisome
because research has shown that accelerated weight gain in a
child's early months can predict weight problems and higher blood
pressure later in life, said senior author Dr. Matthew Gillman,
associate professor at Harvard Medical School.


Well what can I say, except, wake-up America, your to fat,
and not in the good slang way.

first off tell the governments we dont want the chemicals they put into our foods. take it all out. take out the pesticides, take out the HORMONES they put into our foods to make them juicer and bigger. put the babies back on breast milk instead of only God knows what their drinking a powder of some sort. every food we have today has been processed and chemically messed with in some way and we wonder why were fatter and sicker and tired all the time.

Well, I don't think it's necessarily what's in all of our food.

It's really how much fatty fast foods people eat, how much
people eat in general, and how little people exercise.

well babies are just born so they didnt get the chance to exercise yet their coming out fatter and bigger cause of the processed foods. look at most of the young girls today their growing in places at the age of ten instead of thirteen way to early for them but when you process the chickens and turkeys for bigger breast so the people will have more meat well your eating that chemical as well. it dosnt just go away. what you put into the food stays in it. seems to me they know their doing this just they dont care.
