U.S. obesity rates on rise-report - Yahoo! News

I don't understand how anyone can be surprised by this when most schools only require physical education 1 out of every 5 days. The media always comes out with these reports like it is big news that if you eat crap and don't move enough, you will get fat...don't we know that already? Why aren't we doing something about it?

When I went to school, we did PE everyday all the way through high school. And as far as the blame being put on having fast food restaurants close to the school....we weren't allowed to leave our school grounds until we were juniors in high school. These restaurants should not be a factor if the schools are requiring students to remain on campus (which we better hope elementary and middle schools are).

Here is a break through thought....eat healthy, and move around some everyday. Do I get extra points for putting it in writing?
