"Junk Food" Increases Asthma Risk for Children

You include parents who often give fast food to your child? Although they will eat voraciously, eventually junk food will not only lead to obesity, but also the risk of an asthma attack.

Not without reason, a study published in the journal British Medical Association examined half a million children aged 6-7 years and 13-14 years.

Researchers then examined the eating habits and health problems such as itching of the skin, which is a symptom of eczema or dermatitis, nasal congestion and impaired even if the child does not have the flu. In the study mentioned, about three or more serving junk food increases the risk of asthma by 39 percent in adolescents and 27 percent in children.

Not just asthma, skin diseases such as eczema or dermatitis are also at increased risk in children who frequently eat junk food.
Previous studies, suggesting that saturated fat on junk food is a trigger of inflammation in the immune system. Unknown, inflammation causes many health problems for junk food lovers.

Conversely, if the consumption of junk food is replaced with fruits, then the risk of asthma symptoms and skin diseases is declining as much as 11-14 per cent. Provide a variety of foods that are right for your child. Do not make sense to be lazy and whining children often give your reasons for junk food.
