Drinking daily carbonated beverages may cause ‘early puberty’, increase ‘breast cancer’ risks in girls

Gorkha Post



A new study has found that drinking daily carbonated beverages may cause puberty in girls as well increase breast cancer too.

According to report by the Mirror, the study at Harvard Medical School found that around half of a liter a day of sugary cola, lemonade or other fizzy beverages causes early puberty and increases breast cancer chances in young ladies by 5 percent for every year they mature earlier.

Drinks with included sugar increase insulin concentration in the body, prompting higher convergences of sex hormones, which are typically connected with periods beginning earlier, a condition that is on the rise in developed countries.

Researcher Karin Michels said that their study adds to increasing concern about the boundless utilization of sugar-sweetened beverages among youngsters.

Michels added that unlike most other predictors, sugar-sweetened refreshments consumption can be modified and this research shows that it’s considerably more critical that kids switch to water.

Adding glass of milk in breakfast can lower blood glucose

Several research studies have attempted to find a link between drinking milk and a reduced risk for experiencing type 2 diabetes and a new research has found that adding a glass of milk in breakfast is the perfect energy boost for body needs to get through the day.

According to a study published in the Journal of Dairy Science, consuming milk with breakfast cereal reduced postprandial blood glucose concentration compared with water, and high dairy protein concentration reduced postprandial blood glucose concentration compared with normal dairy protein concentration.

H Douglas Goff, PhD, and the team of scientists from the Human Nutraceutical Research Unit at the University of Guelph, in collaboration with the University of Toronto, examined the effects of consuming high-protein milk for breakfast on blood glucose levels.

The high-protein treatment also reduced appetite after the second meal compared with the low-protein equivalent.

“Metabolic diseases are on the rise globally, with type 2 diabetes and obesity as leading concerns in human health. Thus, there is an impetus to develop dietary strategies for the risk reduction and management of obesity and diabetes to empower consumers to improve their personal health,” Goff and his team noted.

Although the team only found a modest difference in food consumption at the lunch meal when increasing whey protein at breakfast, they did find that milk consumed with a high-carbohydrate breakfast reduced blood glucose even after lunch, and high-protein milk had a greater effect.

Milk with an increased proportion of whey protein had a modest effect on pre-lunch blood glucose, achieving a greater decrease than that provided by regular milk.

Likewise, a 2014 study from Lund University in Sweden published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found eating high-fat milk and yogurt reduces a person’s type 2 diabetes risk by as much as one-fifth.

Another study published in the 2011 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition tracked the relationship between a person’s dairy consumption during adolescence and their risk for type 2 diabetes as an adult. The researchers concluded that “higher dairy product intake during adolescence is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.”
