In addition to a host of child chronic conditions such as asthma, allergies, ear infections, ADHD and autism, kids as young as eight years-old are developing "adult" chronic conditions such as high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease and "adult" onset type 2 diabetes.

And that food addiction isn't something to laugh about ; it's a real disease that is just as bad as drug addiction or alcoholism.
They found that highly processed foods were more likely to have the same effect on the brain as hard drugs, compared to non-processed foods like wheat, fish, and other “boring” and “healthy” foods.
