In the diet of nuestr@s nin@s and young people are abused meat, bakery, convenience foods, French fries, etc., full of sugars and saturated fats which increase the palatalidad and eliminate the feeling of satiety. The empty calories of nutritious elements and loaded with refined sugar that replaces milk and other natural foods, are the cause of the current obesity epidemic. Skip breakfast and not eating fruits and vegetables, while eating knick-knacks, and drinking soft drinks instead of water can damage your health. The who recommends a diet of 2000 calories (for an adult), the proportion of sugar does not exceed the 30-50 grams per day.

However, who does not report to the population that a can of coke or other soft drinks, contain 35 grams of sugar which, by itself, they exceed the minimum dose. The American Academy of Pediatrics has warned of the risk of consumption of sugary drinks. A study of the diet of school population in the U.S. showed that an additional can of sweetened beverage increased the risk of obesity by 60 percent. The body metabolizes to 100 gr of sugar in liver and 200 g in the muscles.

The rest is transformed into fat. The increase of fat cells is difficult to combat because the caloric restriction to eliminate such cells could affect child development.

Platonic Academy

In my opinion such of Mileto, he made use of the knowledge that possessed the ancient geometry. This great thinker analyze the different phases of the movement, Since the Greeks perceived some phenomena of nature which directly affect the mobile space and the surface level. To measure the height of the pyramid had to determine the length, extent and volume. Which allows us to affirm that Thales of Miletus introduced geometry in Greece. Geometry is very important since it is part of mathematics.

Geometry deals with the space understood as a set of points. For this reason Zeno believe his famous paradoxes. This branch of mathematics encompasses planes, straight lines, subspaces. Born out of the need to measure the ground and draw on dividing lines, has been enriched later with new branches, such as: trigonometry, analytic, projective, descriptive, differential and algebraic. It takes its name from Euclid’s elements. We divided it in two, Euclidean geometry and non-Euclidean geometry.

So important was the geometry for the Greeks, who at the entrance of the Platonic Academy was an inscription which read: don’t follow him that not know geometry. Albert fields in one of his works titled, axiomatic and geometry from Euclid to Hilbert and Bourbaki. Tells us: for knorr books I III and VI collected the geometry of such and Enopides. 1 Chapter 2 page 19 G. Then again refers to Thales of Miletus according to Proclus was such who first realized that in any triangle isosceles angles on the bases are the same. Alberto tells us that it’s something unfinished for lack of evidence, but what seems interesting is that you such is on the way in which childbirth would occur as soon as distinguish very well the statements that are true in all cases. Chapter 2 page 59. Young people in that place are the contributions that you make to the knowledge, remember that truth is not absolute, since it is formed by sets of truths.
