While I think everyone should take responsibility for themselves, it has gotten to the point where 1 out of 4 Americans is considered obese (i'm pretty sure that's what I've read...correct me if I'm wrong.) What do you think should be done to curb this growing trend and get people to be more active/health conscious? Video games, computers, and tv are obviously pulling people in and helping to create lazy, unmotivated people that aren't concerned with their health. However, these things aren't going to disappear. There are plenty of people that are able to maintain an active lifestyle and still find time to play video games or watch tv (as can be seen from this forum.) So what should be done? Do you think the majority of kids that end up obese just weren't pushed by their parents/school to be active in sports? Are these the same people that grow up to be obese adults? I'm not sure what can be done to be honest. You can't regulate what people eat or how much they exercise, but are there other options? Would it be possible to push kids to be even more active when they're younger? Would pushing more things such as 18+ baseball leagues, city roller hockey leagues, bike paths through the park/woods grab people's interest and help them lead a more active lifestyle? Or is America doomed to have 1/4+ of our society be overweight/unhealthy? Cliffs: I just listed a bunch of shit about people being overweight/lazy. What do you think can be done to make people more active.
