The Obe­sity Trig­ger

Business Today - - THE BUZZ -

A re­cent re­port by Cancer Re­search UK says chil­dren who spend at least 30 min­utes of their leisure time on­line ev­ery day are twice as likely to spend their pocket money on junk food and thus be­come over­weight. Those spend­ing more than three hours a day on­line are four times more likely to buy such foods and 79 per cent more likely to be over­weight or obese. Ac­cord­ing to re­searchers, the find­ings show the need to pro­tect chil­dren from junk food ad­ver­tise­ments on­line.
