Do you think about how your lifestyle is affecting your health?

That’s what this video is about.

This recent public awareness video aims to show how obesity-related health problems can be a result of a person’s long-term behavior, dating back to how their parents raised them.

The video was produced by Strong4Life as part of a campaign started by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

“This video touches on the point that obesity doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a lifetime’s worth of bad habits, bad choices, and bad nutrition,” reads the YouTube description, posted by Your Nutrition Spot. “There’s still time to change all that by making better choices!”
