                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
  Recognizing the health risks associated with childhood obesity and 
 encouraging parents to promote healthy weight and increased physical 
                      activity to their children.

Whereas, according to the American Dietetic Association, obesity rates have 
        tripled in school-age children and adolescents since 1970 and continue 
        to rise;
Whereas obese children and adolescents have shown an alarming increase in the 
        incidence of type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes;
Whereas one of the most severe problems for obese children is sleep apnea, which 
        can lead to problems with learning and memory;
Whereas many obese children have high cholesterol and blood pressure levels, 
        which are risk factors for heart disease;
Whereas obese children have a high incidence of orthopedic problems, liver 
        disease, and asthma;
Whereas overweight adolescents have a 70 percent chance of becoming overweight 
        or obese adults;
Whereas hospital costs for diseases related to childhood obesity increased from 
        $35 million in 1979 to $127 million in 1999; and
Whereas research conducted by the National Institutes of Health indicates that 
        while genetics do play a role in childhood obesity, the large increase 
        in rates over the past few decades can be traced to overeating and lack 
        of sufficient exercise: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That--
            (1) Congress recognizes the health risks associated with 
        childhood obesity;
            (2) it is the sense of Congress that the perception of 
        childhood obesity should be changed from simply an appearance 
        problem, to a disease that can be prevented, treated, and 
        successfully managed; and
            (3) Congress encourages parents to promote healthy weight 
        and increased physical activity to their children.
                                 <all>
