Ten times more children and teens obese today than 40 years ago – CNN

From CNN:

The number of obese children and adolescents rose to 124 million in 2016 — more than 10 times higher than the 11 million classified as obese 40 years ago, in 1975.

A further 213 million children and adolescents were overweight in 2016, finds a new study published Tuesday in the Lancet.
Looking at the broader picture, this equated to roughly 5.6% of girls and 7.8% of boys being obese last year.
Most countries within the Pacific Islands, including the Cook Islands and Nauru, had the highest rates globally, with more than 30% of their youth ages 5 to 19 estimated to be obese.
The United States and some countries in the Caribbean, such as Puerto Rico, as well as the Middle East, including Kuwait and Qatar, came next with levels of obesity above 20% for the same age group, according to the new data, visualized by the NCD Risk Factor Collaboration.

Police have arrested 13 protesters who took place in the violence during demonstrations in Berkeley on Sunday.

Amid the protests on Aug. 27, black-clad members of far-left extremist group Antifa attacked several peaceful right-wing protesters, according to the Daily Caller.

Berkely police said the 13 suspects were arrested on suspicion of multiple offenses, such as assault with a deadly weapon, felony assault, and violating the Berkeley Municipal Code, CBS San Francisco reported.

The 13 suspects arrested were thought to be part of the extremist group.

Despite the canceling of a “No to Marxism” rally at the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, over 4000 people—predominantly leftists and Antifa members—still showed up to disrupt.

Many from the crowd chanted slogans such as “No Trump, no wall, no USA at all.”

The protesters also started a separate demonstration that took place on the UC Berkeley campus to allegedly “rally against hate.”

According to a news release from Berkeley, the ages of the 13 arrested suspects ranged between 20 to 47-years old. They also said that most of the suspects were from Berkeley and Oakland.

One officer was injured while arresting a violent protester and several other officers were hit with paint. In total, six people were injured amid the bursts of violence and two of them were transported to local hospitals for treatment according to a Berkeley City statement.

All of the 13 suspects arrested were identified, Berkely Police department said. Their names are below:

Vasquez, Seth 25 year old male from Berkeley
