Food and restaurant industry and their role in increasing obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Recent news on television brings to the attention of public the role of food additives in hyperactivity as well as the increase in diagnosis of diabetes 2 and obesity. While there is so much talk on obesity and diabetes 2 becoming the next epidemic no one is addressing all the salt and sugar in canned food and in restaurant food. Even milk contains corn syrup. How can we fight the contamination of food itself with increased use of sugar, salt, additives, and pesticides?
Closing Statement from Lalita Krishnamurthy
Thanks to the contribution of everyone and some great input. I believe that educating children in the art of eating and art of selecting the foods accompanied with moderation and exercise is one methodology that can help contain two growing problems.....diabetes and obesity. In addition guiding children to develop healthy social life styles, and teaching them coping skills against the incessant stressors in modern life is equally important.
