The Dangers of Candy

Candy, sometimes called lollipops or sweets, is a type of confection that contains sugar as the main ingredient. The classification, known as candy confectionery, includes almost any sweet confect, such as sugar candy, hard candy, and mint candy. The word "candy" comes from the Greek word "kaht", which means sweet. In most cases, confections that are decorated with fruit, nuts, candy, or almonds are considered to be candy, while confections that lack such components are not.



Candy has always been popular with children. It can be found in almost every preschool, elementary school, and high school. Children even as young as two or three have enjoyed biting off chunks of hard candy. Candy has even been associated with important events like birthdays. This was seen in cartoons, when the character Bugs Bunny would carry around a box of candy and give it to people on his way to celebrate his birthday.


Although candy is not harmful to children, they do tend to become addictive. When left unattended, children will begin to crave for the sugary goodness that they once knew. This is why parents should be very careful about what their kids are eating. Kids tend to eat anything and everything that looks good, even if it is laced with artificial sweeteners and other ingredients. They will also eat foods that are out in the open, such as outside at a store, rather than in back rooms.


Candy has even found its way into the world of medicine. According to Oprah Winfrey, the famous talk show host, eating candy is as dangerous as smoking. In fact, it has even been discovered that children who were breast fed were consuming significant amounts of candy in the months prior to birth. Even after the baby was born, they continued to consume significant amounts of candy during feedings. The reason being, it did not take long for their bodies to figure out that this was not the healthy food that they were supposed to be eating.


The health risks associated with eating too much candy can be devastating to small children. Many of these small doses of sugar consumed each day can result in serious dental problems. This includes cavities, as well as enamel shaping and cracking. Teeth can even be irreparably harmed, through severe decay and other complications. It can even lead to bone deterioration, which can lead to other ailments, as well as the impediment of vision.


Candy can also cause many physical illnesses in children. Among them are asthma attacks, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomachaches. It can also result in bad breath, obesity, poor digestion, and lack of proper growth.


In addition, some of the most popular television shows have come under fire for the messages that they feature on their shows. Most commonly, they feature characters that use sweets as their only source of sustenance, which is not only unhealthy but also extremely dangerous. In one case, a character on American Idol was filmed using a small amount of cocaine in order to help him jump through a large series of hurdles.


In addition to the dangers that candy can present to small children, they can even be dangerous to adults. Excessive consumption of candy, particularly the type that is candy coated, has been linked to the production of Serotonin, which is responsible for mood and anxiety regulation. Even prescription medicines contain ingredients that are converted into serotonin, which have similar effects as candy consumption. These chemicals are usually found in antidepressants. There is definitely a good reason why candy needs to be relegated to special occasions only.
