πŸ₯‘ ~ 250 Million Children Will Be Obese by 2030 (HNN) ~ |

Childhood obesity is rising exponentially worldwide as the relentless marketing of junk foods reaches around the globe and governments do too little to protect their children’s health, according to The Guardian.

The number of obese children globally is predicted to reach 250 million by 2030, up from 150 million now. There will be nearly 62 million obese children aged 5 to 19 in China by 2030, 27 million in India and 17 million in the U.S., the report said.

Over 17% of American children between the ages of 2 and 19 are obese, which sets them up for a lifetime of serious health problems. Obese children as young as 8 now display signs of heart disease.
