Diabetes and Type 2?

American children are facing a national health crisis. Sixteen percent of children and adolescents age 6-19 are overweight. The number of overweight children has doubled and the number of overweight adolescents has tripled since 1980.
Over the last 15 years, diabetes type 2 has increased dramatically in children and adolescents and is linked to the raise in childhood obesity. Individuals with this condition are at a high risk for cardiovascular problems later in life.
In the United States, diabetes type 2 is more common in Native American, African, Hispanic and Asian- American children than the general population.

Science and Background:

Science is telling us that regular exercise and a balanced diet focused in the total body weight can be really effective to battle Pre-diabetes and Diabetes Type 2.

How to Prevent and finish Diabetes Type 2 in our schools

Simple and this is a message to all Principals, School Commissioners and others:

-Physical Education needs to be as important as Mathematics, Science or English. RIGHT NOW IS NOT!

-If Schools don;t have sufficient money to increase the number of hours they can still monitor and control their students results.

There is no excuses for this!

-Kids need to get in the scale every month and if a kids gains few pounds they need to call their parents as soon as possible!

-Make PE Teachers accountable in the Obesity Fight, please read this beautiful letter published in USA Today by a PE Teacher,

No More Condescending messages from the Government that Obesity-Diabetes Awareness is enough, IT IS NOT ENOUGH! Why don’t we raise the awareness in having our kids learning Math or English without testing them, just for fun? Well, you know the answer!, You need to take it seriously, Government, Principals and School Boards. WE HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM AND IS UP TO YOU TO GET US OUT OF THIS MESS!. START CONTROLLING AND MONITORING KIDS HEALTH RESULTS.

– Base a program in developing Motor Skills and less into sports since the kid needs to compete with themselves and gain confidence and self esteem

– Nutrition Education and Parent control is extremely important. Parents are observing their kids killing themselves and they don’t know what to do. Learn what foods you should eat.

This is what  i am doing in several schools:
