Ď30 pc of 12-20 yr age group diabeticí
Our Correspondent

Mohali, September 27
Thirty per cent of the children in the age group 12 to 20 years are facing problems of blood pressure and diabetes in certain cities. This was stated by Brahma Kumari Shivani of Om Shanti Retreat Centre, Delhi, while addressing officials of the Punjab School Education Board here today.

Though the cumbersome education system and competitions were also creating tension in students, the main cause was the careless attitude of children and high expectations by parents, she said. Parents should give enough attention to the spiritual development of their children so that they acquired inner powers to face the challenges in life, she added.

She said in most cases, people considered tension as part of life without realising the ill-effects it had on health.
