GET HEALTHY PEOPLE!!!

BY TINGHE LI 7A

IT SAYS...

"Committee MPs said they were "shocked" to learn about the increase in overweight children, from 12 per cent to 18 per cent, and obese children, from three per cent to eight per cent, between 1978 to 2004."

I SAY...

It is not so shocking that people (especially children) are overweight especially since all the food we are putting into our bodies contain lots of calories yet we never exercise.

AND SO...

It proves that adults are not aware or (hopefully not) don't care about some things that are happening in our world that impacts future generations (us!). This is important because we need to take action and at least make an attempt to stop people from producing foods that are bad for us. If we don't, global warming will continue to affect the earth significantly due to all the processing of most foods, and humans may one day be extinct due to one of the main things an organism needs to live! Think about it! It is simply preposterous! People potentially dying out because of eating food! When the MPs of the committee said that they didn't know that obesity was spreading, it was unbelievable! With McDonald's around, how did they not know that people were becoming more and more overweight? This means that we, as the future generation, need to save the planet and ourselves and not sit around and wait for others to take action since apparently, people tend to not notice things. We can create info graphic posters and websites to raise awareness and so that people can make healthier choices and preferably not die. People can sign a petition to put labels on all foods that shows the process, where it was made, if the food is good for people, ecetera. It is our world and we need to take responsibility and the initiative to fix the problems that we created.
