A blog for 20-somethings

20-somethings are not too healthy

March
18

Today’s society cherishes youth. Young people are considered to be happier, more beautiful and healthier.

Well today , that is not always case.

An article in USA Today states that 66 percent of adults in the U.S are either overweight or obese. In a report released by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention this year, it stated that a quarter of adults 18 to 29 are obese and it has tripled in the last decade. A third are cigarette smokers and nearly two-thirds reported not having regular physical activity. And to top it off, many are not insured.

So the moral of the story is………..

Youth is not as glamorous as it looks.
