  • Abstract:
    In 2004, Montana became one of 28 states to receive Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funding to establish a Nutrition and Physical Activity Program (NAPA) to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases. NAPA is a program of the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) (see www.mtnapa.com). NAPA’s mission is to decrease the prevalence of obesity and improve the health of Montanans by increasing access to healthy foods and creating safe places to be physically active—making the healthy choice the easy choice. Overweight and obesity substantially raise the risk of illness from high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer, and other chronic diseases. As a result of these increased risks, researchers predict that this generation of children may be the first generation to have a life expectancy shorter, rather than longer, than that of their parents.
