And it is not surprising that childhood obesity is a good indicator for the likelihood of obesity into adulthood. What is surprising, however, as Galvez (2003) points out, is that "studies on obesity consistently report a higher prevalence of obesity in African Americans and Mexican Americans compared with the white, non-Hispanic population" (p. A684). The etiology of childhood overweight is multifaceted, but is seemingly always tied to socioeconomic factors.

The morality of the issue definitely helps to convince readers that the government holds the responsibility on obesity. In addition, their evidence also includes a comparison of the personal responsibility argument with obesity to the personal responsibility argument for Big Tobacco. This comparison works well as they state how “the nation tolerated personal-responsibility arguments from Big Tobacco for decades, with disastrous results” (Brownell and Nestle 525).
The study shows how heavily the extra pounds weigh on a child’s mind, but not only children are affected.
