Look around you. The statistics are visible everywhere: 65% of adults in the U.S. are overweight. In 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. Type 2 Diabetes is now at epidemic levels in adults and children. Heart disease has now crept into childhood years. So has the incidence of chronic disease. Such illnesses used to be relegated to the old. No longer. There is good news in this picture. This can be managed and reversed. David Katz, MD, an Internist and Preventive Medicine specialist, nationally recognized nutrition expert, and author of multiple books including Disease-Proof: The Remarkable Truth About What Makes Us Well has founded “Turn the Tide Foundation” dedicated to creating effective and practical programming and making that available free of charge. Dr. Katz is also Editor of the Childhood Obesity Journal. He will walk us through what we can do to reduce childhood obesity and chronic diseases, both in our families and our communities. This show is for all those concerned about the health of our children and parents, today and tomorrow.
Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Dr. Katz, Co-Host Carolina (Kid Kritics Approved) and me as we spell out the solution for turning the tide of obesity and childhood disease. Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com and W4CY.com.
