Medical Update
The Fight Against Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is a serious problem worldwide. Take the UK for example: Government statistics say that around 31% of school-age children in England are overweight or obese, and predict that 90% will be overweight or obese by 2050. So, what’s to be done? Dame Deirdre Hutton, the soon-to-be ex-chair of the UK’s Food Standards Agency has an answer — one that is causing a lot of controversy across the pond. Get the details in this report from WLS News.

Research shows that women who suffer from obesity have higher rates of cancer, including breast cancer. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with breast cancer, be sure to watch tomorrow’s episode of Plastic Surgery Talk on our sister network, The Plastic Surgery Channel. The show features Rebecca Larson, a 32-year-old breast cancer survivor who underwent reconstructive surgery after a double mastectomy, and Dr. Louis Bucky, MD, FACS, a board certified plastic surgeon who performs more than 400 breast surgeries each year. Dr. Bucky explains the factors that determine whether a woman is a candidate for reconstructive surgery, and how breast cancer patients can make sure they are fully informed about their treatment options.

Don’t miss this important episode of Plastic Surgery Talk, which airs tomorrow on The Plastic Surgery Channel.
