MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS: Unhealthy Eating Habits + Reading and Writing Benefits + Dangers of Climate Change
A new study finds children in the U.S. are developing unhealthy eating habits… at an early age. Researchers found nearly two-thirds of infants, and mostly all toddlers, consumed added sugars in their daily diets, primarily in the form of flavored yogurts and fruit drinks.
Also, learning to read and write may provide long-term health benefits…especially for the brain. That’s according to a new study in the journal ‘Neurology’ that found people who are illiterate may be three times more likely to develop dementia later in life.
Finally, new research published in the ‘Lancent’ is calling attention to the dangers of global warming. According to the study, children born today will be more susceptible to infectious diseases, malnutrition and even premature death if climate change continues unchecked.
