These days, many people are worrying about and threatened by obesity. Especially in North America, obesity is one of the main reasons of death. These people are more likely to get heart diseases, high blood pressure or stroke. According to the dictionary, obesity is “the condition of being too fat in a way that is dangerous to your health” (“Obesity”, 997). Overweight and obesity of children and adolescents are defined that above the 85th and 95th percentile of Body Mass Index (BMI). There are many reasons including lifestyle and eating habits, why so many children are obese, and many experts are researching how to cure or prevent obesity.
Children are classified as those between 6-11 years old and adolescents are between 12-19 years old. In the United States, over 15.3 % of children and 15.5% of adolescents were obese or overweight in 2000, and most of them will become adults with obesity (Wardlaw 492). These amounts have increased since 1994. The highest percentages of obese girls are black or Hispanic (37.6%) as are the highest percentage of (45.5%) adolescents. The highest percentages of obese boys are Mexican-American children (43%) and Mexican American adolescents (44.2%). Twenty percent of Asian-American adolescents were overweight in 1996. Asian-American and Hispanic-American adolescents who are obese are about double the number of obese immigrants from other countries (American Obesity Association).
