One-Fourth of Students Obese

Over 21% of the student population in the country is obese, said Mehrzad Hamidi, physical education and health deputy at the Health Ministry. “If current trends continue, we will face a tsunami of non-communicable diseases among the next generation,” he said at the 5th general assembly of Student Sports Federation, Borna News Agency reported. The ministry has prioritized the issue of obesity in students, and has drawn multiple programs to reduce the problem, including intra and inter school sport competitions, increasing physical education hours in weekly curriculums, and eliminating junk food from school cafeterias.
