leave a comment »

It was sad the bed rest ridden women died after an attempted gastric bypass surgery. She left two daughters behind who are petrified of becoming overweight like their mother. I started researching and it turns out child obesity is a serious common problem in the United States. They actually have warning websites for family’s about child obesity. Here’s a family website article on the topic:
