Welcome back to FitFluential Radio! On today’s episode, we’ll talk about various articles pertaining to how our lifestyle is adversely affecting the way our body works. Today, we’re discussing an article saying the overworked youth is no longer safe from age-related diseases, a paper saying heart diseases is on an uptrend again, and an article citing the effects of gadget use in young children.
We’ll also be talking about an article on why there are more skeptics in America when it comes to food research – which is, in our opinion, a good thing. If you have any comments or questions on any of the topics discussed in this episode, feel free to leave them below!
