The academic progress of children may be influenced by fast food intake, according to a new study. Investigators observed that children who consume fast food four-to-six times a week or every day score up to 20% lower on math, reading, and science tests during eighth grade than their peers who do not eat any fast food. Researcher Dr. Katy Purtell explains, “There’s a lot of evidence that fast-food consumption is linked to childhood obesity, but the problems don’t end there. Relying too much on fast food could hurt how well children do in the classroom.” Clinical Pediatrics, December 2014
