These disordered lifestyles, so often fueled by unhealthy fast food, have led to more and more young people experiencing stomach problems of varying degrees. And though they may be at least partially aware of the cause, many simply consider the pain a burden that they must bear.|
Specialists say one of the main causes of stomachaches among young people is the overconsumption of greasy and spicy foods. These snacks may be tasty, but they can also dull your taste buds and even damage the lining of your stomach over time.
Smoking and drinking alcohol are other common causes of stomach disease — especially among those who feel compelled to attend countless business dinners and the like. Members of the post-90s generation also find themselves living much faster-paced lifestyles than those who came before, with longer working hours and higher stress levels leading to insomnia, overeating and indulgence in known stomach-irritants such as caffeine.
Have you ever eaten too much because you were feeling blue, only to starve yourself the next day when pangs of regret overcame you? Or had a barbecue with friends, drank too much and given yourself indigestion, then vowed to eat nothing but fruit and vegetables?
Most members of the post-90s generation know the importance of leading healthy lifestyles, but are unwilling to give up their favorite treats. Instead, they'll put wolfberries in beer, eat cucumber-flavored chips or choose red date-flavored ice cream, believing these to be the "healthier" options. After all, so long as you're "healthy" during the ordinary days, you can eat and drink as much as you like in the holidays, right?
