The direct medical cost of treating obesity related diseases is staggering, but the quality of life costs are even higher. Physical education programs are being eliminated from our schools at alarming rates, and open spaces where kids can explore the environment and enjoy the wonders of the great outdoors are disappearing. We need to reverse this unfortunate trend.
