In March 2004, U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona called attention to a health problem in the United States that, until recently, has been overlooked: childhood obesity. Carmona said that the “astounding” 15% child obesity rate constitutes an “epidemic.” Since the early 1980s, that rate has “doubled in children and tripled in adolescents.” Now more than nine million children are classified as obese.1 While the traditional response to a medical epidemic is to hunt for a vaccine or a cure-all pill, childhood obesity has proven more elusive. The lack of success of recent initiatives suggests that medication might not be the answer for the escalating problem. In recent years, policymakers and medical experts have expressed alarm about the growing problem of childhood obesity in the United States. While most agree that the issue deserves attention, consensus dissolves around how to respond to the problem. This literature review examines one approach to treating childhood obesity: medication. The paper compares the effectiveness for adolescents of the only two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for longterm treatment of obesity, sibutramine and orlistat. This examination of pharmacological treatments for obesity points out the limitations of medication and suggests the need for a comprehensive solution that combines medical, social, behavioral, and political approaches to this complex problem.

Saving Initially Before you begin to type, you should save your document. To do this, go to File > Save As (Figure 2). Microsoft PowerPoint will open a dialog box where you can specify the new file’s name and location where you want it saved. Once you have specified a name and a place for your new file, press the Save button. By default, the format for PowerPoint 2010 is .pptx (Figure 3) not .ppt like in previous versions.

The Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) created this report as an educational tool for policy makers and other interested parties. The statistics presented in this report represent data reported to DFI from all payday lending licensees for calendar year 2011. NOTE: DFI is not able to track data from unlicensed Payday Lenders. What is a Payday Loan? Payday loan companies offer small, short-term, high interest loans secured by a post-dated check. The consumer’s post-dated check is written for the loan amount plus a fee. The check is held by the lender for the loan period (term). At the end of the term, the lender may deposit the check or the customer may reclaim the check with cash. The legislature passed Washington’s first payday lending laws in 1995 under the Check Cashers & Sellers Act (RCW 31.45). DFI is the regulator of payday lenders in Washington State. What is Allowed in Washington State? Maximum Loan Term: Maximum Loan Amount: Maximum Fee: 45 days $700 15% on the first $500 10% above $500 Example: A loan for $500 + $75 fee = $575 A loan for $700 + $95 fee = $795 Payment Plans and Installment Plans Borrowers are entitled to an installment loan at any time prior to default. Borrowers do not have to pay a fee for the installment plan and have from 90 to 180 days (depending on the original loan amount) to repay the loan in a series of installments. The number of payday lending locations decreased 30% from year-end 2009 to year-end 2010, and decreased another 40% from year-end 2010 to year-end 2011. Overall, the number of payday lending locations has decreased 65% since its height in 2006.
