An Alarming Alert for All Junk Food Lovers

An Alarming Alert for All Junk Food Lovers

An alarm for kids who love junk food: The kids who imbibe junk food more than thrice a week are more prone to asthma and eczema, a skin disease.

According to a research done across 50 countries, teenagers who imbibe junk food thrice a week were 39% more likely to suffer from asthma, eczema and rhinoconjunctivitis, an eye disorder. The research included the data of diets of 181,000 youngsters aged six to seven and 319,000 aged 13-14 from New Zealand's Auckland University.

To add to the severity of problem the immune system of such teenagers is also affected. This is because of presence of saturated and trans-fatty acid in junk food. The allergy symptoms due to junk food consumption are still left answered.

A simple solution to this problem is by including more fruits and vegetables in the regular diet. Three weekly portions of fruit and vegetables cut the risk by 14% in the younger group and 11% among the teens.

A yoghurt drink, Souvenaid, aimed at fighting Alzheimer's disease has been launched. This contains brain-boosting Omega-3 fatty acids, folic acid, selenium and vitamins B6, B12, C and E to improve memory. But, medical advice is must before the consumption.
