Sweet-toothed children 'may have depression'
While most children like sweets, those
with an extra sweet tooth may be depressed or at higher risk
of future alcohol problems, researchers say.
The US team report in the journal
Addiction that certain children are especially drawn to very
These were children who had a close
relative with an alcohol problem or who themselves had
symptoms of depression.
But it is unclear if the preference
for the very sweet is down to genuine chemical differences
The researchers say sweet taste and
alcohol trigger many of the same reward circuits in the
Lead author Julie Mennella said: "We
know that sweet taste is rewarding to all kids and makes
them feel good.
"In addition, certain groups of
children may be especially attracted to the intense
sweetness due to their underlying biology."
Experts say alcoholics tend to have a
But the link is less clear in
children. Other US researchers have shown that a preference
for the sweetest drinks was found in the ones undergoing
In the latest study, the scientists at
the Monell Chemical Senses Center asked 300 children aged
five to 12, of whom half had a family member with alcohol
dependency, to taste five sweet water drinks containing
different amounts of sugar.
The children were asked to say which
tasted the best and were also asked questions to check for
A quarter had symptoms that the
researchers believed suggested they might be depressed.
Liking for intense sweetness was
greatest in the 37 children who had both a family history of
alcoholism and reported depressive symptoms.
These children preferred the drink
containing the most sugar - 24% sucrose, which is equivalent
to about 14 teaspoons of sugar in a cup of water and more
than twice the level of sweetness in a typical cola.
This was a third more intense than the
sweetness level preferred by the other children.
The researchers then decided to test
whether the children's taste difference had any impact on
their reaction to pain or discomfort - past studies have
suggested sweets may help act as analgesics as well as mood
They found non-depressed children were
able to tolerate keeping their hands in very cold water for
longer if they had a sugar hit.
However, the extra sugar did nothing
to the depressed children's pain threshold.
Cardiff University's Professor Tim
Jacob, an expert in smell and taste, said the findings were
interesting, but that it was hard to make firm conclusions
or generalisations from one study alone.
He said the findings could be down to
brain chemistry, but might also be explained by behaviour
and upbringing. "While it is true that sweet things
activate reward circuits in the brain, the problem is that
sweets and sugar are addictive, because the activation of
these reward circuits causes opioid release, and with time
more is needed to achieve the same effect.
"But the taste difference may be

Change your Kitchen Habits --
Use reusable containers for food storage instead of
wrapping food in foil or plastic wrap. You can also use
unbleached coffee filters, which does not produce the
deadly toxin dioxin in its manufacturing. Use rags to
wipe up spills instead of paper towels, and use
biodegradable wax paper and bags.
Shopping Bags --
Plastic bags are not biodegradable even if they say they
are they do not decompose fully. Also the ink is made up
of cadmium, and is highly toxic when it is released.
Whereas paper bags are reusable and biodegradable.
However supermarkets use paper that has never been
recycled before and they always say "recyclable" not
"recycled". Here is what you can do: if your purchase is
small don't take any bag, this alone could save hundreds
of millions of bags. Bring a cloth bag when you shop, or
use string bags.
Beware of Your Showers --
If a four person family showers each day for 5-minutes,
in one week they would use 700 gallons of water. This is
enough water for a person to live off of for three
years. With a family of four taking 5-minute showers,
with a low-flow showerhead you can save at least 14,000
gallons of water a year. So if 100,000 families
installed low-flow shower heads we would save 1.4

Most of us have heard the phrase ‘Every man makes his own
fate’. But have you ever wondered what it means? For some it
means that if you do good deeds in the first half of your
life you will have it easy in the second half. But there are
so many counter examples to this interpretation. There are
just so many people out there who do such sincere services
for others but they don’t get same in return. They don’t
have the blissful life that they deserve for their good
deeds. While there are many cheats around who are
pretentious and they still seem to get away after making
other people's lives miserable. Some blame it to luck saying
that few lucky ones are the one to get good in return of
their good while others never do. They believe this is fate.
Fate- on which one doesn't have the power to mould it the
way one wants.
Then why this phrase that ‘Insaan
Apni Kismet Khud Banata Hey’.
Ideally who do good shall get good, and those who commit
evil shall get bad. But as per our observation, we do not
see this hundred percent applicable in this world. Why so?
What is your opinion in this matter? In my view, it is
because this world is not the ideal place of justice, not
the place where people get what they deserve. That is why
there is a pre-determined Day of Judgment where there will
be complete justice. Yes, in this way we can say that man
makes his own fate- the fate of his after-life. And of
course, it is worth to invest in your after-life, because
that is for eternity.
It is a hard battle with oneself to keep doing good when
others around you are not and are still having more happy
life than you. But then assure yourself- there is God above
watching your struggle. He is taking into account each of
your move and your intention. He also is taking into note
every time someone takes you for a free ride and tramples
over you considering your humbleness as a license to cause
further pain. Don’t dampen your spirits because of these
oafs. Just keep looking ahead and smile because you know
that you are in safe hands of God. He is watching you and He
won't let you struggle in vain. So smile and keep up the
