Lobelohas carried out extensive research on health conditions that are as aresult of a given lifestyle in the community. In the Journal ofSchool Health, he was assisted by Garcia, Holub to study variouspreventive and treatment measures that can be applied in treatingvarious lifestyle diseases such as obesity.
Themain source of all these findings were documented on the AmericanJournal of School Health. These findings were used to write a reportwhich was part of the action plan that was part of the government’sstrategy to reduce obesity among school children.
Inthe most elementary schools in the US, there has been an increasedrate of child obesity. Obesity has affected the activities which thestudents can take part. Increased obesity became a concern and had tobe studied and results received reported. The findings of theresearch after being conducted was documented in the Journal ofSchool Health. In their research, Lobelo et al. studied theimportance of healthy feeding and lifestyles among the young childrenand those in their teenage years. They reported that obesityincreases the chance of death for children and teenagers by 20%.Obesity more often than not influences the lives of the studentsnegatively. The condition may lead to other students making fun ofthe obese students. That way, their self-esteem is lowered and theyare unable to even contribute to various activities they carry out asa class.
Thereport is mainly intended for parents so that they can control thetype of food that their children eat. The parents are encouraged toadopt healthy lifestyles which do not increase chances of their kidshaving various lifestyle diseases.
Obesityis, therefore, a challenge that many parents have to contend with. Itis mainly brought about by unhealthy eating behaviors where thechildren mostly feed on junk food.
Tocontrol the obesity, it is recommended that the parents have acontrol of what their children are eating. That way, the parents willbe able to regulate that amount of junk food their children usuallyeat. The main objective of the study was to create awareness amongthe parents to enable them regulate the food that their childrentake.

Hallforsis a world renown researcher who has majored in the study of varioussocial factors that influence the quality of life that is led by thecommunity members. With the help of Rusakaniko, Iritani, Mapfumo andothers, he was able to carry out a study that helped to show theeffects of HIV in the society.
Inthe American Journal of Health resource, findings about the effectsof HIV were documented after a research was conducted by Hallfors incompany of others.
TheSummary of the resource
Themain objective of the research was to increase rate of acceptance ofchildren whose parents have died of the disease. In the research, itwas found that HIV infection rates have been on the increase over therecent past. The increased infection rates have increased the numberof orphans. The students drop out of school due to the death of theirparents. The resource also helps to explain the various ways throughwhich the society can come up with so that it becomes possible tocurb the effects of the disease that are experienced by the students.It is also of great importance that enough awareness is raised whichwill help the society to accept the existence of the problem that isfacing its students.
Thestudy was mainly targeting the members of the society as well as theteachers of students who have fallen victim after their parent’sdeath due to the disease. These groups of people are the one thathave the greatest influence on the quality of education that thesestudents will have. The students are also part of the intendedaudience as they are the ones who receive the effects of theoccurrences after the death of their parents.
Hallforset al. carried out a study and reported that the adoption of ARVs isof importance as it will help reduce the chances of death for theinfected patients. That way, the rates of school dropouts will reduceas mortality rates will have reduced. It will, therefore, give thestudents the calm and peace of mind that they require going throughtheir studies. Therefore it is of great important that the governmentprovides resources that are necessary to ensure that there is areduced mortality rate among the youth.
Thereduced mortality will also help to ensure that a country has enoughmanpower that is required to ensure production processes in variousindustries is continuous. The presence of parents and their activeinvolvement in the children’s life will help them to concentrate intheir studies and there will therefore be increased chances ofsuccess for these children.
