Tackling Childhood Obesity

Former president Bill Clinton and the American Heart Association have teamed up to tackle one of the nation's biggest public health threats - childhood obesity. The joint alliance will focus on slowing the increasing rates of obesity and encouraging healthier lifestyles for young people.

Nearly 16% of the nation's children and teens are overweight or obese - two to three times more than 20 years ago. And experts say childhood obesity leads to a number of health problems usually not seen until adulthood, including high blood pressure, type II diabetes and high cholesterol levels.
