How can obesity effect teens?

Obesity and teens. It can have a dramatic effect on a teenager. I see many teens, as young as 13 years of age who are morbidly obese and their stories are heartbreaking. Getting teased, not having friends, not being able to play sports with their peers, not being included in social activities, etc. Then there is the diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc that they develop early which damages their body.
