New York, NY, August 26, 2011 -- Nutritionists often write about the obesity epidemic and how it is affecting children. An August 1 article on Yahoo! Health, “Anorexia Affecting Young Children in UK: Statistics,” was particularly disturbing, with statistics on the rate of reported cases of anorexia or bulimia for children 5 to 15 years old in the UK. Over the past three years, nearly 2,100 cases of these ailments were treated: 98 cases involving patients 5 to 7 years old, 99 cases involving 8- or 9-year-olds, almost 400 involving children ages 10 to 12, and more than 1,500 involving 13- to 15-year-olds.
The UK is not alone in facing this problem, and it’s very likely that the US has the problem on a comparable scale. In fact, the article pointed out that the actual numbers of cases are most likely higher than the study reported. Parents are faced with growing extremes of both dangerously overweight and underweight children.
“We need to encourage our children to embrace their individuality and teach them the proper way to feed and exercise their bodies, minds and spirits,” say Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, co-authors of the amazing rapid fat loss book TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH). “We need to set the example.
