The Trend From Addiction To Poor Nutrition And Little Exercise
The Word Health Organization recently presented a new study on the health choices of adolescents. Only a few years ago, teenagers used to have an increased consumption of tobacco and alcohol. In recent years, fewer adolescents choose the path to binging and addiction. This trend seems to be history.
About 20% of adolescents used to smoke and/or drink back in 2010. Today, these numbers have been experiencing a reduction of up to 10%, especially among girls, and only very few now include tobacco and alcohol in their lives. But parents are still worried about the past and finding it difficult to keep up with today’s trends.
Even if a reduction of cigarettes and alcohol shows to a benefit of adolescent health, a new trend now endangers their health even more: poor nutrition and little exercise. Many adolescents struggle with being overweight, vitamin deficiency, digestion issues and no physical activity.
Parents now need to keep the past in mind, but modernize to this new age of problems surrounding the years of adolescence. It is now crucial to pay attention to the eating and exercise habits of the teenager, as crucial as it was almost a decade ago to prevent them from diving into the world of addiction.
