Junk food has never been associated with being a healthy and/or nutritional source, and a new study is taking it a step further to suggest laziness and junk food influences headaches.
According to the study, conducted by Norwegian researchers, “unhealthy” teens have significantly more headaches than their healthy and active peers.
The findings revealed that excess weight, inactivity and smoking are all unhealthy behaviors that increase the risk of recurring headaches.
The study involved nearly 6,000 junior high and high school students living in the same Norwegian county from 1995 to 1997, and showed that one-third of the participants were fairly inactive, one-fifth were smokers and one-sixth were overweight. Compared to the healthy lifestyle group, the students reported 20-50 percent more headaches, especially as their factors increased.
