When it comes to cancer, everyone knows that the disease is terrible. Although most cancers occur in middle-aged and elderly people, it does not mean that children and young people will not get cancer. It is understood that around the world, there are up to 250,000 children suffering from cancer each year , which is very heartbreaking.

So, what causes so many children to get cancer?

1. Obesity

Nowadays, the proportion of obese children in many countries is getting higher and higher. The vast majority of childhood obesity is caused by acquired factors , among which diet is the main factor causing obesity. Many children usually like to eat burgers, cola, fried chicken, snacks and other high-fat, high-sugar foods, coupled with the reduction of exercise , over time, it will cause obesity. If obesity always accompanies children, then their chances of developing diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer in adulthood are much higher than others.

2. Environmental factors

Environmental pollution is also an important cause of cancer in children. For example, the living environment is full of car exhaust, formaldehyde, second-hand smoke, air pollution, etc., which can increase the chance of children getting cancer.

3. Dietary factors

Children may be exposed to some carcinogens in their life through diet.For example, some elderly people cut off the damaged part of the moldy fruits at home in order to be frugal, and give the rest to the children to eat, which may contain aflatoxin and cause the occurrence of cancer. In addition, barbecue foods contain carcinogens such as benzopyrene , which can also cause cancer.

In addition, many children often eat fast food, snacks, drinks , these foods contain a lot of additives , relative to adults, children's metabolic capacity is weaker, so if they often eat such foods, it can increase the burden on liver and kidneys, which can cause cancer in serious cases.

So, what should parents do to reduce the chance of children suffering from cancer?

1. Pay attention to the nutritional balance of children's diet

In addition to high-quality protein, starch and other nutrients in the children's diet, the intake of vegetables, fruits and other foods rich in fiber and vitamins should not be neglected to ensure the growth and development of children. In addition, parents usually buy less junk food for their children.

2. Provide a good living environment

Parents should also provide a good living environment for their children. The home hygiene should be cleaned frequently. Do not stock up too much food in the kitchen to avoid the breeding of aflatoxin. In addition, if family members have a smoking habit, they should avoid smoking in front of the children .

3. Let children exercise more

In addition to paying attention to diet, parents should also encourage their children to exercise more, bring them into contact with nature and more to walk outdoors. In addition to studying, let the children stick to a sport they like, which helps to control their weight, strengthen their physical fitness , and prevent cancer.

Children are at a vigorous age and should not have been troubled by cancer. However, excessive obesity, air pollution, second-hand smoke, and poor diet have led to an increasing incidence of children. As a parent, you should manage your child’s diet well, avoid letting your child eat junk food, and let your child exercise more to improve their physical fitness, provide a good living environment for the child, and avoid cancer to the greatest extent.

You have written very important and good things, often parents do not pay much attention to children's food and keep trying to fulfill children's desires. Parents need to pay more attention to feeding their children healthy and especially natural fruits and vegetables. Nowadays children are more interested in fried good-looking things. Many diseases can be prevented by using good and natural things.
