September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and Isagenix is leading the charge to help get future generations healthier. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported in 2010, that 17 percent of children and adolescents between ages two and 19 years of ages were diagnosed as obese. Children who are already obese are more likely to stay obese raising their risk of chronic health issues like heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis and particular types of cancer.
