Children are 'exercising less'
"Only one in eight youngsters is getting the recommended 60 minutes of
physical activity a day, according to the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
..
The Food4Thought campaign is designed to encourage children to consider
their levels of physical activity and the long term consequences of their
current food choices...
The energy-dense snacks they consume in front of their televisions
and computers are simply not being burnt off...
Children need to be active to prevent obesity but also to promote healthy
growth, bone strength and psychological wellbeing. "

H1N1 Rap by Dr. Clarke
"The H1N1 Rap was written, produced, and performed by John D. Clarke,
MD, FAAFP. .This music video is a fun, highly educational, and entertaining
way to learn about prevention of the H1N1 virus."

(YouTube)

The lyrics:
H1N1 Swine Flu infection for Intervention.  I bring prevention. 
I'm Dr. Clarke and I come to make your head numb, held high, Lesson One:
If you think you're infected, seek attention. 
If you have to, stay at home so you don't spread nothing. 
Use tissues when you sneeze cuz you could spread some
cuz coughed up germs are where it spreads from. 
I'm recommending washing hands for protection from bacteria - be thorough while you count for 20 seconds. 
The sanitizer I advise you to get it.. Why?
It makes germs die when you rub and let it dry. 
Don't touch your eyes, your mouth, your nose, your face,
that's how you get infected so just play it safe. 
Long term outcome we'll see the end come.. never sick again from the H1N1!
