    • Chris Dodd: (Addressing Report Linking Childhood Obesity to Heart Disease, November 12, 2008) This disturbing report is further confirmation that childhood obesity presents a medical emergency and must be treated that way. I am deeply worried to learn that our children may be facing life-threatening diseases and health conditions that previously only threatened adults.

      This report is part of a growing body of evidence that today's children may be the first generation of Americans to lead shorter, less-healthy lives than their parents. The Federal government needs to show leadership and provide states, local communities, and families the tools and support they need to protect our children.
