The Fattening of America's Latino Child

Posted by Daniel Sanelli, M.Sc. on Apr 27, 2011 2:00:00 PM

The following is a presenation I created for a final in one of my graduate school courses.  It is a bit rough, but the information is valuable and I wanted to share.  Obesity in America is a growing problem, but even moreso amongst the Latino community.  About 11% of Latino youth are obese, compared to 8% overall.  This is an issue that must be addressed.
