LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To mark the conclusion of Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Herbalife (NYSE:HLF) Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Johnson released the following statement:
“While Childhood Obesity Awareness Month is coming to a close, our commitment to the cause of healthy, active lifestyles endures. Childhood obesity rates in this country are alarmingly high. According to the CDC, childhood obesity has more than doubled in the past 30 years.
“Therefore everyone must remain aware and passions must not be limited to a mere four weeks of the calendar. The cause is too important; the need too pressing. Reducing rates of childhood obesity is a challenge that requires all hands on deck. Our government, the private sector, non-profit organizations and all Americans must take action to reverse this trend.
“Herbalife is proud to help American families live healthier lives through balanced nutrition. We look forward to working year-round with our partners, customers and members to promote healthier, more active lifestyles for all Americans.”
