Documentary:

Inactivity pandemic/Evil of the century

What if we were a milestone in changing an entire North American behavior? Even more, what if we were to make our province of Quebec shine as a leader in North America? 

What if we were part of the leadership of this change? We can be. 

We have a chance to be part of a historical turn that has already begun and get recognized for our work by some of the most affluent people.

America is going into a dramatic pandemic of children suffering from obesity.  The problem is not just the food they eat. The main cause is the physical inactivity, sedentarily. Luckily, this problem is easy to tackle with true leadership based on facts and action.

Get children physically active in schools again as all kids should be. The impact will be felt throughout the entire economy for decades to come. 

Yet, at the rate obesity is growing in kids from age 5 and up, in 20 years, 60% of North American children will suffer from obesity.  This becomes a major legacy for our children and those to come. 

The movie will lay out a very brief history on how America used to be great and fit. However, in less than 3 decades, so one generation went on to become the most obese country in the world. World leader in obesity is not a title you want.

 

This obesity pandemic is now relayed to a generation of obese children. More than 35% of American kids are now overweight or obese. This means that in less than 20 years, the cost of health-related problems will grow to ten times what it is now.  Sadly, Canada is following with only 15 years difference. The problem is spreading to such a degree that some people cannot even walk anymore.

Since its inception, the changing academic curriculum has seen multiple enhancements to the physical education discipline.  Many national and global events have helped alter the course of physical education in America and bring us to our current structure.  With physical education classes often being the first to go during budget cuts and curriculum reorganizations, the evolution has been a winding road with constantly redeveloped guidelines. 

Physical education is a staple of a comprehensive educational system, and fitness plays a major part in the physical and mental health of all Americans.  Today’s educational landscape has allowed this important program to flourish as an integral part of the modern-day educational school system.  Lately this focus has been renewed, as there is now a national concern over the rising rate of obesity among our youth.

Our growing softness, our increasing lack of physical fitness, is a menace to our security.
