In recent years, obesity has taken place within the area of ??children, making them overweight people are very young, something not seen before. Much is blamed on fast food and junk, but what about the parents? What do we do to remedy this growing problem?
The first thing we have to think about is how we are feeding, if we have good eating habits at home, how many times a week we feed them fast food, among other habits that we acquire along the little time we have to devote to housework.
Another important point to note is that obesity is a disease that can be inherited, if the father or mother, or grandparents, are obese, then it is time to pay much more attention to food at home to care for child and prevent diseases such as diabetes or hypertension in children.
The underlying problem in society can be reversed if we pay a little more attention to what they eat our children. I’ll give you some very healthy tips you can take into account to help combat childhood obesity at home.
The eating habits of the so-called developed countries favor the increase of diabetes in children, whose disease is characterized by predisposition or inherited genetic factors.
Recent studies show that European and American children with diabetes with increasing frequency. In particular, the incidence is higher in the American nation because the child population has high rates of obesity.
Diabetes is a syndrome characterized by excessive accumulation of sugar in the blood due to low production of insulin (produced by the pancreas), a substance that is responsible for transporting the entire body. There are two types: Type 1 diabetes occurs in people where insulin production is low or nonexistent, and most patients with this condition develop it before age 30. In turn, the type 2 occurs when the pancreas still produces insulin but the body becomes resistant to its effects, usually appears after age 30, and one of the major causes is obesity.
The researchers also analyzed genetic factors, environmental elements and various infections, early exposure to cow’s proteins and stress as possible triggers for type 1 diabetes in children. In response, the less effective prevention, because although specified to avoid viral infections from pregnancy, caring for feeding or prolonged breastfeeding during the first months of life of children, have not determined the exact environmental factors that influence in the development of the disease.
In the case of type 2 diabetes, specialists make it clear that you have a defensive position very clear: low-fat healthy diet and exercise.
Thus, although no conclusive results are available, open new lines of research, for example, about the consumption of smoked foods. In countries where this type of food is common, such as Finland, there is an index of 40 diabetic children per 100 thousand.
In Mexico, diabetes has increased so recently that the number of patients is about 10% of the total population. It is very probable that the cause is in the making of the patterns and habits of our neighbors to the north.
