Study Links Fast Food to Asthma, Eczema & Hay Fever

An international study involving over 500,000 teenagers and children found that regularly consuming 3 or more serves of fast food a week was linked to a whopping 39% (teens) and 27% (kids) increase in severity of Asthma, eczema and hay fever!

The study, which was published in the respiratory journal Thorax, also found that eating 3 or more serves of fruit saw a reduced incidence of severity of these conditions by between 11 and 14 per cent.

Clearly, more damage is being done to our young children from eating fast, fatty, processed foods than obesity alone. Fast foods contain saturated fats, preservatives and fatty acids (free radicals), whereas fruit is full of healthy vitamins and minerals but also rich in antioxidants.

Whilst the authors of the study clearly point out that fast food does not cause the diseases, but rather a higher risk of the disease becoming more severe.

Another example confirming the old saying, “You are what you eat!”
