The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that obesity has reached epidemic proportions. Sixty-three percent of Texas adults are overweight. Thirty percent of Texas high school students are overweight. Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States.
Excess weight takes a tremendous toll on the human body. That includes diabetes, heart disease, stroke, bone and joint issues, cancer, and breathing problems.
That's why KTRE is introducing Move It! - For Your Health, a station initiative to raise awareness of problems facing overweight children. Our goal is to play a role in helping East Texas families live and eat healthier. Over the next two years, KTRE will be presenting features on exercise, nutrition, and other health-related topics in an effort to spark interest and initiate action in the East Texas community.
So, won't you join with us and move it for your health?
