Overview

The most important issues affecting teenagers are comprehensively studied in the series "The Gallup Youth Survey: Major Issues and Trends". Each volume is filled with relevant statistical information and fascinating stories and reports, most collected by the Gallup Youth Survey, an arm of the famed Gallup Organization, over the past four decades. For more than 70 years, The Gallup Organization has studied human nature and behavior. The Gallup Youth Survey was founded in 1977 to provide ongoing information on the opinions, beliefs, and activities of America's high school students, and to help society meet its responsibility to youth. Experts agree that healthy eating habits and proper exercise should be an important part of a young adult's life. Unfortunately, studies have shown that both obesity and malnutrition are growing problems in the United States. This volume examines the causes of obesity, the pressures that young people face to look thin and attractive, and how lifestyle choices made during the teen years can have a great effect on adult health.
