Obesity, Physical Activity - Children.
Gilliam, Thomas B.
Childhood obesity starts at a very early age, and preventive measures taken early enough may retard the development of fat cells. It appears that physical activity plays an important role in reducing obesity. The activity program must start early, in preschool days. It is felt that screening children for obesity when they first enter school and providing a good physical activity program are major steps towards reducing the obesity problem. (JD)
