In Russia, more and more teenagers aged 15 to 17 years old are suffering from obesity. To solve this problem, advertising that instills unhealthy attitudes towards food in children should be banned. This was stated by the head of the Russian Ministry of Health, Mikhail Murashko.
“The age structure of obesity… today tends to be younger,” the minister noted at the international congress “Obesity and Metabolic Disorders.”
However, obesity is most often diagnosed in children aged 15 to 17 years. Such a frightening trend indicates an increased risk of death in such children in adulthood, summed up the head of the Russian Ministry of Health.
Earlier, Murashko reported an increase in life expectancy for Russians. More about this read the material Public News Service.
