Experts Alarmed by Bodybuilding Among Teens


A new report says getting “buff” may impact physical development of teen boys

As you saw in the video above, experts are concerned by the fact that a growing number of teenage boys are working out and eating right because it might affect their physical development.

What the report didn’t mention was that according to the latest statistics obesity in the U.S. has tripled in the last 30 years. Over 35% of adults and 17% of children and adolescents between the ages of 12-19 are obese.

Explain again how working out two hours a day, six days a week is worse for a teenage boy than sitting around playing video games and chowing down on fast food?

    What??? They aren’t eating at McFattys and every other fast food slop house that are serving up hot off the grill food additives, and nitrates that are poisoning the very people this report is so worried about, not to mention the public in general. The parents really have something to worry about! That their children aren’t following their artery clogging, heart disease, obese lifestyle, and are actually wanting to improve their quality of life! Kids now a days huh? I would rather have a scientifically engineered meal replacement, or protein shake from a quality sports lab, than have something that looks like a failed scientific experiment! And obviously if they are learning about protein supplementation and nutrition. I would imagine they are taking the time to learn how to do so properly. If they aren’t, then that is when it should become a problem to be concerned about.
