Health and Human Behaviour

Health is known to be related to foods we eat. We now have “new” conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). How closely related to diet are these conditions? New evidence would suggest that the foods we feed our children play a crucial role in certain chronic conditions, e.g. Type 2 Diabetes as well as behavioural issues.

Therefore rather than feeding our young people with highly processed foods stripped of any real nutrition, perhaps we should be looking towards a whole foods diet that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. Juicers such as the Omega VRT350HD provide an easy way to create large quantities of nutritious fruit and vegetable juices in a short space of time.

Interestingly enough, there are further links to diet and behaviour of young offenders.

One of the secrets of controlling violent young offenders in prison is being unlocked. Researchers are looking at whether diet is as important as discipline. Fish oil and vitamin supplements, seem to have had a dramatic effect on behaviour at three prisons.
