U.S. Army Under The Threat of Obesity

The U.S. army is under attack but from an unlikely threat.

??Obesity is the largest reason recruits are disqualified from joining the army;??According to a recent study by the Council for a Strong America.

??The study went into detail saying out of the 71 percent of ??Recruits between the ages 17 to 24 who are disqualified,??31 percent is because of obesity.

??This has caused the Army to fall short of itโ€™s recruiting for ??The first time since 2005.

??According to the Army Times, the obesity epidemic is hitting especially hard??In southern states, where the Army draws a large portion of ??Their recruiting from.

??Researchers at Citadel military college, found recruits in??10 states in the south, had lower levels of physical activity??And were over 20% more likely to be injured during training??Than those from other areas in the U.S.??The study from the Council for a Strong America went on to ??say the best solution for the obesity crisis is to teach children??At a young age about the importance of physical activity and eating healthy.????????????????????
