I occasionally see new studies or posts on the internet that I have to address outside of our typical science deep dives and Q&A's and this one stood out to me in a big way. If you've been listening for any length of time, you understand my position when it comes to preventive health practices and lifestyle changes over quick fix drugs and surgeries and this new "trend" is admittedly alarming. I'll explain why I believe this is becoming a trend, what we can do as a society, and more. Topics include:


- Pediatricians Now Prescribing Weight Loss Drugs and Surgeries

- Prevention and Getting Ahead with Obesity

- The Effect of Costing Costs with Physical Education in Schools

- Context Around Statistics Around Childhood Obesity 

- Fixed Mindset Around Obesity and Health

- Detrimental Reliance on Pharmaceutical Drugs

- Takeaways From This Topic

- Please Share, Rate, and Review
