presentation for health care class

I have to do a group presentation for an intro health care class. There are three of us in the group and we will each have 5 minutes to speak/share visual aids. We all agreed our topic would be childhood obesity.

I want to suggest each of us picks a risk factor. Of course I'm thinking along the lines of infant feeding/ breast vs. bottle, not spoon feeding 4 month old infants, CLW, etc. (I thought maybe the other two students might pick something like lack of outdoor play, food deserts, etc.)

So here's the question: What do you all think if me framing this as "One of the risk factors for childhood obesity is feeding formula" rather than "breastfeeding lowers risk of childhood obesity".

I am worried that people will hear "bfing" and go to that place in their mind where all they hear is sanctimonious preaching. I thought flipping it might catch people off guard and make then listen more. There's a pg girl in the class, I already had to hear her talk about loving CIO. I want her to hear what the real message is. Breastfeeding doesn't make your child healthier...formula feeding makes your child less healthy.

Make sense? Thoughts?

Huh. This board ain't what it used to be, that's for sure.

Well, anyway, I write a 5 minute prez on how formula feeding contributes to obesity, and made a cool ppt to go along with it.

The references are all medical studies from the college's database. Here's to hoping for an A!!!
