Specialists listed the diseases that schoolchildren most often suffer from
Specialists note an increase in diseases among school-age children.
According to doctors, the percentage of completely healthy children is very small: most of them suffer from any disease.
A deteriorating environmental situation, a significant decrease in the quality of products, an increase in the number of chemical additives, passive smoking, and heavy workloads at school — all this undermines the fragile children's organism.
Parents do not always monitor the diet of the child, endorsing such negative habits as soda, fast food, chips and sweets in unlimited quantities, which leads to the problem of childhood obesity.
Boys already at school acquire hypertension and peptic ulcer. Girls often suffer from excessive thinness and neurosis. Almost half of all students suffer from chronic diseases.
