Kids Drinking Too Much of Fruit Juice Have More Chances to Get Asthma
Researchers from Harvard University reveal that children who drink sugary fruit juice or whose mothers drank sugary beverages during pregnancy are at 79% greater risk of developing asthma.
A team of scientists has analyzed the data regarding eating habits from 1,000 mother-child pairs. They also examined information on kids’ health, including whether they had been diagnosed with asthma between 7 and 9 years.
Study co-author Sheryl Rifas-Shima says: “In addition to influencing asthma through increasing the risk of obesity, we found that sugary beverages and high fructose may influence the risk of asthma not entirely through obesity. This finding suggests that there are additional mechanisms by which sugary beverages and fructose influence asthma risks beyond their effects on obesity.”
