The Seattle Times reports, Preschool obesity rises:

Dr. William Cochran, a pediatric gastroenterologist and nutritionist for the Geisinger Clinic in Danville, Pa., said he sees many youngsters in his weight-management clinic who weigh 300 to 400 pounds. He also is seeing more and more children with diabetes, high blood pressure, even liver disease.

“Some kids are drinking a liter or two liters of soda a day,” Cochran said. “In 10 to 30 years, the incidence of heart disease and stroke and diabetes are just going to be astronomical.”

This is just sick. Good fodder for Michael Moore’s health care documentary, don’t you think?
