Do you think that limiting or eliminating the consumption of soft drinks will reduce behavioral problems? In your opinion, what is the main cause of behavioral problems in children?
Oh my! Rakell. You sounds like having falling in the trap of generalization!
Nowhere in the text it suggests it is is the main
link, but only a link there.
By the way, it could have a bias (viés/ser tendencioso...) in the search, since the soda case-study was taken in the
and Child Wellbeing Study" in the first place.
Okay, granted that they "adjusted" the data for "sociodemographic factors, maternal depression, intimate partner violence, and paternal incarceration...", but then, these factors couldn´t be enough to the output? how much? and how much they adjusted? no one knows.
And then comes the "liking bias" (viés de afeição), a scientist takes a liking for the research they make, and one of them that is articulated enough to be its spokerperson might convince everybody of their finding. Clean and easy as that.
I am not saying they are wrong, I am against soft drinks consumption, because of our ignorance of the chemicals put it it, who knows if they don´t affect cells making us prone to diseases like cancer? and other maladies? even interacting with the chemicals of our brains, perhaps making us prone to depression etc.
But, these are conjectures of mine, guesses...
So, answering your question; I don´t know which could be the main cause of behavioral problems in children. Anyway, I think parents might do their best to provide education and parental involvement and participation (even tough, the younger not always want it! he he).
Certainly reducing/limiting soft drinks will make your and your family diet healthier, anyway you´re not a helpless sinner if you let your family drink some, every once in awhile. With moderation, of course.
Now, personally, it´s not my fave liquid. Coffee is... I know, I know, just as harmful, perhaps!
