Abstract:

Over the past twenty years the percent of overweight children has doubled, and among teens, tripled. More importantly, their lives are in jeopardy. We are raising a generation of Americans whose life expectancy may actually be shorter than that of their parents. In this special, produced in conjunction with Rodale, Inc., nutritionists, psychologists, pediatricians, and other experts explore the causes of obesity, the physical and emotional damage it can do, and how parents and schools can team up to help kids improve their health. Also looks at the world of an overweight teen through the eyes of a slender teen who until now has never felt the pain, isolation, and alienation that many experience every day at school and at home.
