O.G. Shaw – Childhood Obesity
Last week’s speaker, Dr Ogle Shaw, spoke on “Physical Fitness”. Because of childhood obesity, today’s children are not going to live as long as previous generations. Instead of exercising for one half hour three times a week, he recommended five minutes a day using a NASA developed exercise device used by astronauts in space.
Dr Shaw demonstrated the exercise device after the meeting. In answer to a question on “diet importance”, he said fresh fruit and vegetables are most important, then frozen, and thirdly, caned fruits and vegetables. Nutritional supplements are also important.
