Our nation's children have entered a perfect storm for becoming obese - consuming diets that are high in fat, sugar, and salt, while engaging in an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, where they are tethered to computers, television, video games, tablets, and smartphones, which have replaced running, biking, swimming, slides, swings, and monkey bars, said California Podiatric Medical Association (CPMA) President Thomas J. Elardo, DPM.

Obesity affects almost every organ in the body, and its impact is even more detrimental in children in that their bodies are still growing and developing, said Dr. Elardo, a podiatric physician and surgeon in private practice in Los Gatos, California. Disease consequences of obesity include increased cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke), increased rates of diabetes, breathing problems, including asthma and sleep disturbances - namely sleep apnea, increased digestive and liver problems, and increased orthopedic problems, including degenerative joint disease of the back, hips, knees, ankles, and feet.
