Somebody once remarked “When blackberry and apple were fruits, the world was a much better place”.
Similarly, when children ate fresh, home-cooked food, their health was far better. New research has found that in children, type 2 diabetes (adult diabetes) progresses much faster and the complications related to diabetes appear much sooner in life. This means we might see heart disease, kidney disease and other diabetes-related problems in younger adults in future. An excess of junk foods, processed foods, refined foods, eating out frequently, coupled with physical inactivity is leading children to adult diseases in their teenage years. It is not uncommon to see obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or type 2 diabetes in school or college going children these days. A preventive measure will certainly help.
