Too Fat to ServeUpdated: January 25, 2018 Healthy Living
The future security of the United States is becoming increasingly threatened by the obesity epidemic which is accelerating among its youth. Currently, 75% of young people aged 17-24 are unfit for service in the military and the biggest reason is obesity. Obesity levels are now 4 times higher than what they were only a generation ago (a generation sounds like a long time, but it is really only about 25 years). One out of every three children ages 10-17 are overweight or obese! This startling report from Mission: Readiness, a nonprofit organization consisting of senior, retired military leaders. http://www.missionreadiness.org/
