Today more than 5 Million children in US between the ages of 6 and 17 years are overweight.
75% of obese adolescents will become obese adults.
Obesity related illness includes Type II diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol which lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease and death.
The National cost to treat obesity related diseases is estimated at $61 Billion.
