Fat kids a threat to national security

From a study by the group Mission Readiness:

A report from the group, being released Tuesday, says that 27 percent of Americans ages 17 to 24 are too overweight to join the military.

A disturbing statistic for sure… The group blames schools lunches. I think that is only part of the problem.

With the ever increasing amount of sit on your arse and do nothing entertainment options provided to children, the statistic shouldn’t be all that surprising.

How can going outside playing ball, running around, etc. compete with the internet, gaming systems, cable, DVDs and the like? They can’t…

I hate to sound old, but with the dawn of all these incredible technological wonders available for kids, you just don’t see children playing outside anymore the way they did in the past. It is not going to change either.
