Physically Correct

    If our legislators want to really make a difference in the lives of Oregonians, they can start by passing a trio of bills headed for the Oregon Senate. Simply stated, the bills are trying to reverse a trend of fat children. At the end, the bills will require a minimum amount of physical activity from each student each week, starting with kindergarten through eighth grade.

    It’s no secret. Our obese children are turning into obese adults. These bills make the case for forming habits early to protect ourselves from skyrocketing health care costs in the future.

    Who supports these bills? The American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society, Oregon Medical Association, American Association of Pediatrics and American Heart Association are lobbying hard for them.
