Parents begin to lose control of their children at the age of 13, a study has found. Four in 10 worry about the food and drink their child has when they are not with them, with 43 per cent often finding illicit sweet or fast food wrappers in their child’s bedroom or school bag. 39 per cent also do not always know who their child is hanging around with or the company they are keeping – which makes losing control of their diet even more likely.

Rudi Westendorp, professor of old-age medicine at the University of Copenhagen, recently suggested that a future 135-year-old had already been born. While in 2016, life expectancy for the average Brit was 79.5 years for men and 83.1 years for women, it was estimated that more than 20 per cent of those years would be spent in ill health. What it does take, according to a study by Harvard University, is not smoking, keeping an eye on your weight, exercising for 30 minutes each day, having no more than one glass of wine daily (hold that cab sav) and eating healthily.
An investigative report by the BBC recently found that the number of antidepressants prescribed to children in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland has risen 24 per cent over the past three years. Drugs may not be the most effective way to treat depression (more about this later), but pity the children who were treated for depression before antidepressants were invented. Last century, Sigmund Freud improved things a bit when he introduced psychoanalysis as a treatment for depression.

Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in the world, affecting both low and high income countries. Well known symptoms of iron deficiency include poor concentration, fatigue and mood changes. Women are more affected by iron deficiency anaemia than men because they lose iron during their periods and need more when pregnant or breastfeeding.
Pregnancy loss can be an isolating experience for women and their families. The grief experienced may be intense, but the feelings of the bereaved may not be recognised – even by close friends and relatives – because pregnancy loss is not widely discussed.

A group of 16 nurses working in the intensive care unit (ICU) of Banner Desert Medical Centre in Mesa, Arizona have astounded co-workers by all becoming pregnant at the same time.

Fashion retailer Boohoo has been accused of Photoshopping the waist of a model on its site in order to make her appear thinner. The observation was made by Ella Thorpe, a 25-year-old from Manchester, who’d been shopping online when she noticed that something was amiss when looking at pictures of a model wearing a denim skirt. Ms Thorpe realised that one of the photos had been digitally altered to make the model’s waist look slimmer when showing the size 10 option for the skirt, with the original unedited photo also displayed on the site.

Carbs have been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism in recent years, with many people wrongly believing that eating them is an unhealthy course of action. According to Kirsty Bamping, registered dietitian and media spokesperson for The British Dietetic Association, carbohydrates are a necessary component in all people’s diets, regardless of whether they eat meat or not. “The government’s healthy eating advice recommends that just over a third of your diet should be made up of starchy foods, such as potatoes, bread, rice and pasta, and another third should be fruit and vegetables,” Bamping tells The Independent.
