Baby food products are more dangerous for adults

On the eve of International Children's Day were published evidence that foods intended for children are not safe for their health. British scientists from the University of Southampton is required to prohibit the use of the products of artificial food dyes because they cause "hyperactivity" in children. And just finished the 57th Assembly of the World Health Organization concluded that the rate of obesity in children is much higher than in adults [cut] kids get fat before your eyes Why WHO experts, doctors and nutritionists seriously took up the food, it is clear : fattens humanity together. The epidemic has swept not only the industrialized countries but also the developing world. Now the world's more than 1 billion adults are overweight and 300 million with a clear clinical obesity. But the most terrible thing is that the rate of obesity in children is even higher. According to the WHO, now in the world, more than 17.6 million children are overweight, which was not yet five years. In many countries, the number of children and adolescents with obesity over the past 20-30 years has doubled, sometimes even tripled. This means that the health of the younger generation will be worse before they start to hurt, and live will be less. How to write a WHO report, "Obesity and overweight are major risk factors for chronic diseases such as diabetes type 2, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer." First of all we are talking about tumors of the esophagus, colon, breast, uterus and kidneys. Unfortunately, all of these diseases are younger. Specialists pay special attention to diabetes mellitus type 2 — is a key disease in respect of the development of cardiovascular disease and stroke. If before a diabetes occurs in people older than 50 years, but now it is found even in obese children, not yet in puberty. Soda, snacks, crisps, sweets and fast food to give to children is not recommended so happens that the vast majority of food products intended specifically for children and adolescents, less harmful and food for the adults. Under fire from experts is the so-called "big five": sweet breakfast cereals (siriels), soft drinks, confectionery, savory snacks (chips, cheese sticks, etc.) and fast food. Many parents are surprised by the presence of this "black list" siriels. Manufacturers of these products have created a very healthy reputation: they are made from grains contain a lot of fiber and dietary fiber, they contain vitamins. In all this there is a grain of truth. But these properties eliminates a fair amount of added sugar, fat, and sometimes dyes. And in children siriels it lay much greater than in adults. And it is clear: children love sweets — even very sweet. And so they prefer cereal "wet" — this mess, you need to make them a "toy." Sometimes literally — it is usually offered to cut the cardboard packaging, sometimes figurative — make the product very bright and attractive, and its advertising is converted into something like a cartoon. It savory snacks other disease — they are impregnated with fat and salt. Moreover, it is often hydrogenated fat. This means that it contains trans-fatty acids, which are harmful pest — they would contribute to the development of atherosclerosis than cholesterol and saturated fats. Until recently, these trans fats preferred to be silent, and now they have received a special mention in the recommendations of the WHO food producers — they are strongly advised not only to "limit saturated fat, trans fat, sugar and salt in foods," but also take responsibility for marketing and promotional campaigns such unhealthy foods, especially for children. Everything is listed vices products together in a fast-food restaurant. It has space all harmful fats, salt and sugar. Attempts to "launder" fast-food-hot does not work out. It seems that this power system simply will not survive without such harmful and high-calorie ingredients. Of course, salads, which some manufacturers are trying to enter the menu, not harm. But we need a real change in the course and scope of servings. There can not be an ordinary piece of "Coca-Cola" in 1 liter, a small portion — 350 ml, and the children — 250 ml. You can not sugary-sweet-fat milkshake sell a portion of a half-liter. It is too much of everything. Paint requires sacrifice unhealthy reputation gazirovok confectionaries and understood by many. These are the main sources of sugar for many children. But in addition, it is also the main sources of artificial food dyes. In view of WHO experts, they have not got, though talk about their dangers is long. Serious research on the subject and a half years ago published a British doctors from the Research Centre for the Study of Asthma and Allergies, and a new job just submitted their compatriots from the University of Southampton. They convincingly demonstrated that the artificial "paint" contribute to the development of hyperactivity in young children, particularly — in three years old. Now, doctors are going to continue studies in children up to 9 years old. — "Hyperactivity" — one of the main problems of child psychiatry in the world — says child psychologist Julia Gurevich. — For it is typical of the increased activity of children, combined with reduced attention. Usually hyperactivity manifested even the very youngest children. But the main problem comes when a child goes to school. These children is more difficult to learn, they usually terrible handwriting, wrong speech. They can not concentrate on their studies. Being very motor — restless, moving, moody, they hassle teachers and peers. They are unmotivated bouts of inappropriate behavior, often accompanied by aggression. British doctors shared toddlers into four groups according to their initial state. In the first group were perfectly healthy children in the second — with allergies and hyperactivity in the third — with allergies and without hyperactivity, in the fourth — only with hyperactivity. This week cleared the children "paint" — they were given food without artificial colorings. Then part of the kids got the juice to dye, and some — without him. Parents were careful diary of behavior kids, and do they know what their child is drinking juice — juice appearance was similar. In all groups after the "edible ink" children were hyperactive. The Food Standards Agency UK listened to the results of research, but not banned the use of chemical dyes. This can only be the whole world — in almost all countries, people eat and drink the same. It is difficult to find a country where there would be "Pepsi" or "coca" — the world's major food corporations are sold almost everywhere (and of such food and drink is not always easy to find something without "paint", with a low content of sugar, fat and salt). That is, in the last decades the world has to eat similar food — experts say WHO has been "globalization of food markets." Last but not least with the food "egalitarianism" link current world epidemic of obesity. This, of course, it's not the only reason. Play an even greater role lifestyle and reduced physical activity. How to choose baby foods without artificial colors? The answer is simple: Do not buy products with bright colors — natural dyes, unfortunately, look more bleak than artificial. But to accomplish this task will not be easy. Manufacturers know that children love all bright, and do not spare them for paint. But the natural dyes are used rarely, considering that in the eyes of a child, they will not decorate the product. The easiest way to find free "paint" baby "stuff." For example, instead of yellow-toxic "Fanta" and "Mirinda" (this color is not of oranges or tangerines), you can take a clear "Sprite" or &q
uot;Shebna-Up." However, they also have a lot of sugar and preservatives, but at least there is no paint.
