Today on NewsTalk, we convened a special panel to look at the problem of childhood obesity. Experts have been warning for some time that children in the U.S. eat too much, make poor food choices and don’t get enough exercise. This puts them at risk for diabetes and other diseases – and ultimately leads to shortened life expectancy. Our panel, which included a representative from the Crockett County, Tennessee, schools, focused on some of the innovations being tried around the country. In our second half hour, Tom Threlkeld of the DC Pro Sports Report discussed the Redskins meltdown against the Bills. We also talked about the Capitals’ hot start, the St. Louis Cardinals’ improbable World series victory, and the NBA’s management-labor impasse.
