The teenagers of today are usually deprived of a few things that were available to the previous generation.The previous generation were endowed with living in a less polluted atmosphere not only as far as air and water is concerned.They were exposed to healthier diet.Natural fruits,dairy products.Things have changed.Not only the youngsters are exposed to more stress even their diets are more towards fast food.It is not so uncommon to see obese teenagers.Also digestion problems,constipation,stone also visit them when they are not too careful.

You are right regarding the health of youngsters ranjan... in rural areas you will find young people to be more fit physically but in urban areas people are so busy in work that they can hardly afford time to prepare healthy food... so they have to depend on junk foods... this is one of the reasons for so many health problem in young generation today... our previous generation even at 60+ can do their own work but people at 30+ now get tired after walking for a while...
