Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Relaying Recent Studies About Food Craving Causes

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, states her opinion about raising kids to crave healthy foods rather than crappy ones.

New York, NY – July 5, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website, reporting that visual exposure to fast food media advertisement and early childhood consumption of unhealthy foods in the womb will negatively affect the food preferences that children have later in life. Dr. Veronica explains her stance in her blog, titled “Cravings on a Chemical Level.”

Dr. Anderson writes, “Cravings have largely been associated with psychological triggers in the past, but recent studies show that several internal physiological factors come into play. Think about when you walked past the candy aisle at the grocery store, and your mouth salivated when you saw those Crunch bars. Ooh, that would be a special treat, right? Well, do you have the same reaction to carrot soup? Okay, forget salivating at the thought of carrot soup for now. How about even simply feeling eager to eat it. Not the same right?”

“Kids might learn to prefer carrots after digesting them while in the womb, but mothers and fathers are both accountable for teaching their kids about resisting the temptations from fast food commercials and ads. Teach your children the affects that healthy versus unhealthy foods have on your body, give them the tools and understanding of how to cook fresh meals, and then lead by example for the best results in raising a healthy non-obese child,” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
