Michelle Obama's Childhood Obesity Myth
Posted by Staff
National Review Online:

A decade-long drumbeat of bad news about childhood obesity is now officially wrong. Michelle Obama is wrong, too. America is not in the grip of a childhood-obesity epidemic and, consequently, the first lady’s much-ballyhooed anti-obesity strategy is redundant, at best.

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and published in Wednesday’s edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association, the obesity rate among pre-school American children plummeted 43 percent over the past ten years. Only 8 percent of two- to five-year-olds were obese in 2011–12, down from 14 percent in 2003–04.
