Making the diet before the age of 30 and in any case no longer than 50 years is important for health. People who become overweight between 25 and about 47 (middle age) have a 22% higher risk of dying for any reason and a 49% increased risk of dying from heart disease. This was revealed by a study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), cited by SkyNews.
The researchers analyzed data from 36,051
"The retention of obesity in adulthood has been constantly associated with an increased risk of mortality for any reason," the study concluded. "The results suggest that maintaining normal weight during adulthood, especially preventing weight gain in early adulthood, is important in preventing premature deaths in old age," they explained.
In Italy l Obesity is a real problem, from an early age. Not everyone follows a healthy diet. The proportion of overweight children between the ages of 5 and 19 is 36.8%, an increase of 39.1% compared to 1990: it is a "worrying" situation. The president of Unicef Italia, Francesco Samengo, said of the report "Childhood in the 2019 World: Children, Food and Nutrition – Growing Healthy in a Changing World".
"Malnutrition – he explained to Samengo – does not only mean that you do not have enough to eat but also eat wrong or unhealthy. With this report we also want to highlight the problem of obesity in children who take on the characteristics of a real epidemic . "
In Eastern Europe and Central Asia, a child of seven for five years is overweight. From 2000 to 2016, the proportion of overweight between 5 and 19 years doubled from 1 to 10 to about 1 in 5. Compared to 1975, the number of children and adolescents in this age group who suffer from obesity is 10 times greater for girls and 12 for boys.
