1> A Technological Wonder!

Fat , Weak Children Around World

Childhood physical inactivity reaches crisis levels around the globe,
Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute, November 26, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

“Children around the world are not moving enough to maintain healthy growth and development...”

“…compared 49 countries from six continents to assess global trends in childhood physical activity in developed and developing nations...”

Modern Zombie Fatasses
“...modern lifestyles – increases in screen time, the growing urbanization of communities and the rise in automation of previously manual tasks – are contributing to a pervasive public health problem that must be recognized as a global priority.”

Technologically-Driven Process of Mental, Physical, Social, and Cognitive Retardation
“We have a collective responsibility to change this because inactive children are at risk for adverse physical, mental, social and cognitive health problems.“

Techno-tards?

Technological Destruction of Children
“...how our changing world is affecting children’s physical activity levels. Increases in screen time and a growing reliance on technology are taking up crucial time that could be better spent engaged in a wide range of physical activities; and an increased use of motorized transport is changing physical activity levels globally.”

Call to Action
“We hope this report will be a call to action for societies around the world.”

Save the Techno-tards!

Tracking the Tech Tards

NIH Study Probes Impact of Heavy Screen Time on Young Brains,
Bloomberg, December 9, 2018.

Main Points

“Brain scans of adolescents who are heavy users of smartphones, tablets and video games look different from those of less active screen users...”

"...the first batch of scans of 4,500 nine- to 10-year-olds. Scientists will follow those children and thousands more for a decade to see how childhood experiences, including the use of digital devices, affect their brains, emotional development and mental health."

Tech Tardation Revealed
"...the scans of children who reported daily screen usage of more than seven hours showed premature thinning of the brain cortex, the outermost layer that processes information from the physical world."

Tech Tardation Quantified
"Early results from the $300 million study, called Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD), have determined that children who spend more than two hours of daily screen time score lower on thinking and language tests."

2> 88% of American Adults Metabolically Unfit

Only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy, study finds,
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, November 28, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

“Only one in eight Americans is achieving optimal metabolic health.”

Define Metabolic Health
“...defined as having optimal levels of five factors: blood glucose, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, blood pressure, and waist circumference, without the need for medications.”

The Question
"The study fills a gap. We wanted to know how many American adults really meet the guidelines for all of these risk factors and are within optimal levels for disease prevention and health."

Majority of Losers
"Based on the data, few Americans are achieving metabolic health, but the most disturbing finding was the complete absence of optimal metabolic health in adults who had obesity, less than a high school education, were not physically active and were current smokers.”

Obese vs Exercisers
“...less than 1 percent of obese adults are metabolically healthy. On the other hand, people who exercise more appear to have higher levels of metabolic health.”
