Teen obesity is at all time shocking levels.

Studies have shown that 54 percent of teens are either overweight or obese.

When it comes to teen obesity, what makes matters worse is a newly discovered effect which has shown that being overweight causes lower levels of thinking skills.

According to the study, obese teens do worse on tests and some teens are exhibiting brain atrophy as  well, which is truly shocking. Obesity not only has been shown to cause higher blood pressure, diabetes, but now dangerous effects on the brain.

Parents need to realize that teen obesity is a very real problem and should be taken seriously in order to provide children with the best possible head start in life.
