Literature Review Sugary drinks are a major contributor to the obesity epidemic. The term “soft drink” refers to any beverage with added sugar or other sweetener, and includes soda, fruit punch, lemonade and other sweetened powdered drinks, and sports and energy drinks. People who drink sugary beverages do not feel as full as if they had eaten the same calories from solid food, and studies show that people consuming sugary beverages don’t compensate for their high caloric content by eating less food. Sugar may be sweet but the health effects of sugar consumptions are not. Drinking large amounts of sugary beverages can often lead to serious health issues.
Obesity: There is a direct link between young children’s eating habits and them becoming overweight and obese later on. Children in families with insufficient access to nutritious foods are in fact significantly more likely to be obese in early childhood than other children. This is the result of excessive calorie intake and an emphasis on foods that have high levels of fat, sugar and sodium. This is especially true of children who regularly consume fast food. Obesity in children can lead to conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and a variety of other health problems besides depression and lower
Consumption of low good oils in the body can lead to excessive appetite. Excessive appetite is associated with increased hunger and cravings. Incorporation of moderate healthy diet can drastically reduce unhealthy eating habits. • Poor absorption of vitamin- An adequate amount of fat increases the process of absorption of vitamin K, A, E and D. Vitamins play a critical role in the normal functioning of the body. These ranges from blood clotting, cell repair, immunity and growth.
In a study of 54 mother-child pairs, they looked at the relationship between the mother 's levels of Streptococcus mutans and the levels of their children 2.5 years after birth. They found that children from mothers with high levels of strep mutans were much more likely to also have high levels of strep mutans(OR=2.96.) In addition they found that the these children with high levels of strep mutans also had a higher prevalence of dental caries(OR=9.39)(Kishi et al 2009). Although the passing cariogenic organisms from mother to child is not the only mode of transmission, it is appears to be a large factor affecting early childhood
Untreated, IDA can increase your risk of infection and illness and long term can lead to complications affecting the heart and lungs, potentially leading to death. In 2010 global anaemia prevalence was estimated to be around 33%, with iron deficiency ranking in the top 5 causes of anaemia in most areas on the world . According to the WHO iron deficiency is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world with children under 4 years old being most greatly affected. Iron deficiency can adversely affect the cognitive, behavioural and physical growth and immunity to infection. Full-term
Elderly people aged 65 and over are one of the most widely affected groups by malnutrition in Australia. It has been estimated by the University of Wollongong that around 30 percent of hospitalised elderly Australians are malnourished, while another 50 percent are at high risk of malnutrition. General deterioration of physical and mental health from ageing can result in malnutrition. In combination with this, changes in lifestyle for elderly people often lead to loneliness, boredom and worry, prompting a worsened diet. Elderly people often experience physical changes in the body which can result in low levels of necessary nutrients.
The human body has a recommended dietary allowance and also a tolerable upper intake level of selenium needs. Selenium has significant functions and can be found at different potency levels in different food sources. Not acquiring enough of this mineral can lead to deficiencies and consuming too much can lead to toxicity, hence causing side effects in the human body. Selenium supplements are available to the public if individuals
Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
Even the number of hungry people in the world exceeds the total population of US and European Union. Extreme hunger and mal¬nutrition remain as blockade to development and creates a set up from which people cannot easily go out. Hunger and malnutrition mean less productive individuals, who are more susceptible to disease and often unable to earn much more and improve their livelihoods. There are nearly 800 million people in this world who suffer from hunger worldwide, the major¬ity
