I believe that since there have been much more fast food places, junk food, and candy, the number of kids that are obese has raised more every year. The majority of people that are obese are mostly teenagers. In these years, many people have noticed that many kids have been obese than any of the past years. I believe that the reason why most of the kids that is also because of the new technologies. Kids have became more lazy, because they just sit around and play video game, watch T.V., use their computers, sleep, or use other things that are of entertainment. What I think is that kids should do more exercise because these new technologies make you lazy and make you more entertained than to go outside and play or exercise. This I believe has changed the way kids are today.
