Like most kids that are born in Taiwan, I have huge allergy problems. I sneeze my nose off every morning when the weather changes and when the pollution levels are high. As a result of the allergies, we are less likely to go out and exercise. Honestly, when you get the allergies, all you want to do is stay in a comfortable environment. You don't want to talk, you don't want to eat, you just don't want to do anything. I'm not a doctor but it's pretty obvious that pollution is huge contributor to growth problems amongst kids in Taiwan and Hong Kong. I don't know if you have noticed, but kids that grew up in the US are bigger,stronger, and yes...sometimes fatter. I know this is a generalization and I have no medical proof to back this up, but hey.... there's always some truth behind every generalization.
Is it the diet? Is it the exercise? Is it both? I personally think the real influence behind the need to be stronger and healthier came from this ad campaign in the 80's.
