Junk Food Today, Asthma Tomorrow?

A new study out of Europe indicates that children who ate 3 or more burgers a week were more prone to asthma and wheezing, while children that consumed more fruits and fish were less prone. Anyone surprised? We’re comparing something that is full of saturated fat and calories with fruits, an anti-disease wonder food and lean omega-3 fish. But the study did not just focus on meat; it looked even further into other habits that individuals were most likely to have when they ate burgers. It looked at overall lifestyle of junk food and unhealthy food choices.

The benefits of a healthy diet are abundant – and every study we see proves this!
