We are living in a fast paced world where we don’t have time for most of our health related issues. This kind of living condition is known to be affecting us adversely by the food and eating habits. Nowadays we prefer more to junk food which is more delicious and tasty but deficient in vital nutrients. This phenomenon of having junk food all through our life time will have serious implication on our health and body.
Given below are some of the major problems arising out of the continuous junk food intake.
Reduction of immunity: The natural food we had earlier did provide us with vital nutrients which helped us in strengthening our immunity. The junk food we are having now serves just as some food item to relieve the hunger. The natural food has the vitamins and nutrients necessary for the proper growth of our body.
Increase in heart disease: Cardiac arrest and myocardial infection has a greater chance to infect us if we continue with our junk food habit. Formation of plaque causes more blood to be pumped to heart which leads to attack. It is the result of junk food having large amount of cholesterol generating and density less lipoproteins. Junk food has high concentration of salt and sugar deposits which lead to high heart blood pressure. The continuous intake of junk food leaves us with high cholesterol problem too.
Lack of concentration: Our body will find it hard to digest the junk food we are having since it is having a high rate of fat and oil. To digest the food, body needs to take extra work by using more enzymes and blood. This extra blood is utilized in the intestine which leads to the drowsiness and causes lack in concentration.
Reduction of energy: Junk food does not provide the human body with any essential nutrients and vitamins. Harmful carbohydrates, cholesterol and other fats present in the junk food do not provide any energy for the body. Since this food item does not provide the essential amount of energy required by the body, fatigue will be experienced due to lack of energy.
We should take a good decision to have what is good for us. If we are paying large amount for this junk food to have many diseases and other problems at the door step of our life, why should we pay more to die early?
