More and more people are getting obeys. IN the last years, the number raised form 25,8% to 28% all over the United States. The following cost of this disease are a problem for the individual and the society.
At first mention that the reason for overweight kids is the increasingly use of computers and TVs. More and more kids are sitting in front of the screen instead of going outside. According to the German “Kigs” study, are the most children sitting in front of the screen or computer for more than 3 hours a day. And if they go outside, they’re watching TV on their smartphones or laptops. For an example have a look at the cartoon from King.
On the cartoon you can see two boy in front of the TV and one says: My mum wants us to stop watching cartoons and go outside. Let’s take my laptop and watch cartoons outside. This proves that today it’s normal for kids to spend time inside in front of screens than going into nature and have fun with their friends.
Second. The biggest problems for the community are the expenses. In the UK every year £ 5.8 bn. are spent on poor diet and £ 5.1 bn. on overweight and obesity. This is very large amount of money that could be better invest into schools, hospital or the police. And most important it would be possible to reduce the taxes, so that everyone could spend more money.
In the end we should support our children to go outside with their friends. And we also help people with overweight, to prevent an increasingly number of ill people. And to avoid an expenses over £11 bn per year.
