The results of this work deny reports claiming that moderate consumption of soft drinks cause obesity. The work included a sample of 1.523 people, located in the age range that goes from 13 to 18 years, from different Spanish provinces, and indicates that the results of studies that speak of a relationship between obesity and consumption of soft drinks are weak and inconsistent. According to the Research Professor, Dr. Climbing frames, the Superior Council of scientific research (CSIC), Coordinator of the AVENA study, the main conclusion is that there appears to be an association between the consumption of this type of beverages and obesity although a dietary pattern approach is more suitable to investigate the association between diet and obesity, without forgetting the level of activity at any time Physics. In consequence, not only the patterns dietary are important, but are also so food and habits activity physics/physical inactivity that must be always taken into account when assessing relations with obesity in longitudinal and transversal studies. Therefore, it is important to carry out studies of comprehensive intervention to try to identify more sensitive solutions to the epidemic of obesity increased, adds Dr.
Marcos. In addition, experts remind that the lifestyles of the population are different on one side and the Atlantic, with the U.S. being more prone to a sedentary lifestyle. In the same way influences the diet, most destructive in American society by not devoting enough time to the food and have a fast lifestyle. Today has been that as a minimum should devote 15 to 45 minutes to each meal, depending on type of food, and make five meals a day.
Other recent studies according to the Avon study carried out the past year in Cambridge, with a total sample of 1,203 children aged between five and six years of age, the results did not show a significant association between obesity and the consumption of sugary drinks. Moreover, the data obtained suggest that the group that ingested drinks low in sugar tended to fatten more than the group that consumed beverages not lowered. This seems to be because children who have a tendency to clog up used drinks low in calories as part of a dietary plan clearly ineffective. The researchers who participated in this study assert that there is very little evidence that sugary drinks play an important role in obesity compared with other meals, though they also insist on the need to provide balance in the diet. Also in this field, scientists at the University of Otago, belonging to different medical areas, specifically analyzed the consumption of sugar or sucrose and its relationship to body weight. The study, published in Public Health Nutrition, was intended to investigate the possible relationship between the (BMI) body mass index and the consumption of sugar and fat in adults and children in New Zealand. For this purpose, a cross-sectional study was conducted in homes and schools that 4.379 adults (over 15 years) formed part and 3.049 children (aged 5-14). Their results show how adults with overweight or obesity did not one consumption of sugar or sucrose than normal weight adults.
