poor mothers think that feeding their kids with heavy calorie diet even when their body is not hungry will make them strong
infact eating at wrong times will lead to obessity

also many kids eat junk wile lazing on sofas or while rolling in front of TVs

it\'s only good for taste
but junk food will spoil your skin when you get into 30s


Moms-to-be who scoff junk food may not only be harming their unborn child, but could also be putting their future grandchildren at risk of breast cancer, a new study has claimed.

Researchers have carried out the study and found that mothers can pass the legacy of an unhealthy diet onto their daughters and granddaughters, raising their odds of breast cancer, the \'Daily Mail\' reported.

For their study, the researchers fed some pregnant rats normally and gave others the same amount of calories but in a much fattier form. They then looked at breast cancer rates in the animal\'s daughter and granddaughters, both of which were fed normally.

Despite this second and third generation not gorging on fatty food, they were up to 60 per cent more likely to develop breast tumours than other rodents.

The researchers, from Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington, then tried to work out how something that happened in pregnancy can go on to affect the health for generations to come.

They showed that it wasn\'t due to the junk food diet raising levels of oestrogen, a hormone that fuels the growth of breast tumours.

Instead, they believe it can be explained by a process called epigenetics, in which conditions in womb cause subtle changes to the way genes work. These changes, different to mutations, can be passed down the line from mom to daughter, or from father to son, time and time again.

In this case, the tiny changes may increase the number of potentially cancerous \"buds\" in the breast.

Lead researcher Dr Sonia de Assis said: \"That is our theory but we don\'t really know how it is happening just yet.\"

Despite this, she believes there is a clear message for human health. \"The implications from this study are that pregnant mothers need to eat a well-balanced diet because they may be affecting the future health of their daughters and granddaughters.\"

The findings have been presented at the American Association for Cancer Research\'s annual conference recently.


 You people are correct but then how the mom's can stop there kids as where ever go the Junk food / packed foods are easily available even if you watch television in that also aids are coming of Junk and Packed food so children's are used to this and asking the junk food , and even in schools canteen the junk food and Soft drinks are easily available , So it is very hard for the moms to stop there kids.

If you people have any suggestion how to handle the kids for not eating the junk food/ Soft drinks/ Packaged food etc.


that\'s mainly on atmosphere ........

nw days horlicks is more available rather dn aswagandha powder

man generally pickup d thing which be available ,,, also if parents nt provided dt thing to children dn child feel complexity  ..... so dere is no fault of parents  

dt is our atmosphere only which serve up junk foods :ninja::ninja:


they may be easily available in shops but why do moms make them available in homes?
kids dont have money to buy themselves, so they\'ll take whatever you make them take

finally child might be more complex nd take a hate type feeling from dis. may be from mom nd family too.

fully banned is nt a good thing ,,its a changes of new life style just accept it bit too
u cn just get it from a mom point of view r child point of view ...

just ex. where all friend taking horlicks nd he is taking aswagandha powder . wt would be his feeling or reaction on dt time ? :ninja::ninja:


it should start somewhere and why not in your home ?

if one kid is looking healthier and stronger after few days other kids and their mothers will start thinking
