The risks of obesity to children fall into two broad categories.

The first category is the problem of precocious puberty.  Actually, I have realized this problem from my personal experience. When we were in elementary school at that time, after the 1990s, girls began to develop second sex characteristics from 13 to 16 years old, while boys, a little later, started to show them from 15 to 17.

But over the years I have observed. For example, my family’s nephews and nieces in China, they have a common problem with their generation, that is, precocious puberty. For case, girls may start to develop after 11 or 12 years old, and their secondary sexual characteristics appear. Some boys may be similar to these girls, may be 13, 14, or less than 15 years old, began to develop. So, this is a common phenomenon of precocious puberty.

Of course, some of us say that this precocious puberty may be related to the use and abuse of Bisphenol A which is a chemical compound used in various plastics. But I found that our young relatives who have precocious puberty are also generally overweight. They especially love to eat, such as French fries, fried chicken legs, and Cola, all of which are unhealthy food.

Of course, some epidemiological surveys have found that there is a positive correlation between obesity and precocious puberty in children and adolescents.

This early sexual maturity has some problems. Such as epiphyseal closure, the child may not reach the height of the universal height.

And then the precocious puberty, in fact, will have some adverse effects on the overall long-term health of the children.

Then on another level, as we mentioned earlier, all these adult obesity problems, (can) appear prematurely in young people.

For example, this is what we just talked about this fatty liver, diabetes, a lot of childhood diabetes. We are saying that type-2 diabetes is usually in adulthood probably in the 40s and 50s, and now patients are becoming younger and younger, it could be now in the 30s and 40s, and then even in the 20s, even in the teens, which is very scary.

This is a health hazard for us as human beings.
