"The good news is that obesity and its co-morbidities are preventable through healthy eating—nutritious foods in appropriate amounts—and physical activity…we are working together to reduce barriers to physical activity at the community level and to provide opportunities for increased physical activity. We need parks and recreational facilities within a short walk or ride from people's homes."
