CAPSTONE PROJECT TOPIC
It is necessary to increase public awareness of the health of American children. According to Mayo Clinic (2022), “The increasing number of children with obesity has led to more cases of type 2 diabetes in younger people”. Understanding how the factors diet and exercise contribute to type 2 diabetes in American children may help prevent those children from developing the condition. The prevention of type 2 diabetes in American children can enhance population health if certain factors within their lives are met.
Has the increase of processed food caused type 2 diabetes to rise in American children?
How much exercise do children get?
Is the amount of exercise they get less than, equal to, or greater than the recommended amount?
Are children in food desert/food apartheid more prone to obtain type 2 diabetes?
Dependent Variable: Diabetes in children
