Obesity and the health and legislative/policy's aimed to end it

OBESITY: This health issue has become one of the most focused upon health issues of the 21st century. Obesity has become the leading preventable cause of death worldwide, with increasing prevalence in adults and children.

  • Arkansas Act 1220 of 2003 was among the first and most comprehensive statewide legislatives to combat childhood obesity through school-based change. Annual surveys of pricipals and superintendents were analyzed to document substantial and important changes in school environments, policies, and practices. A significant number of school districts have modified physical education requirements for elementary schools and developed policies prohibiting the use of physical activity as a punishment
  • Nutrition Labeling has been very significant in the past few years in the frontier of public health laws.
  • Fast food restaurants such as McDonalds were dropped the hammer down on and made sure that they too follow a set of health regulations and provide a section in their menu for healthy foods.
