Don’t put your health at risk: avoid junk food
“Fast food does not have to be junk food.” –Anonymous. Recently, the increase of obesity in the country of U.S. has become a madly controvert subject. Starting from early childhood, these kids at their little age don’t know the risks of eating junk food. For one thing, students who eat these foods in school say that they have no other option than to eat like, fried chicken, pizza, fries, and soda because if they eat something too light they will end up the long day of school very hungry. On the other hand, medical professionals warn that the effects of eating unhealthy can be harmful and in some cases even fatal. Sadly, these ominous have not stopped a fair number of students, including the parents from eating such garbage food. Education is the best way to address the problem of increased obesity and diabetes cases among early childhood.
Despite the advertisements from merchandisers, there is still little evidence to show that there’s a study where junk food is not good for young children and adults. All calories are not equivalent produced. As we learned in the Fed-Up documentary, 160 calories worth of almonds present a solid dosage of fiber, which moderates absorption and maintains glucose levels from getting stick. 160 calories worth of soda, in any case, are consumed straight into the liver, causing a “sugar rush” and the quick change of sugar to fat. The two choices are 160 calories, yet they make radically extraordinary responses inside the body. “To make any sustainable dietary change we have to understand why change is warranted to begin with,” says nutritionist, Karyn Duggan, CNC. “If I could get all of my patients to see Fed Up, then I could spend all my time with them focused on how to bring their health goals to fruition because they’d already have a very clear understanding of why the changes are necessary.”
Adding to the problem, unhealthy food is accessible anywhere, even more easily than healthy food; it becomes a bad habit of getting sweets, even more an addiction. For this reason, parents that go to the supermarket have the last decision of picking “sweet snacks” for the kids or fruits for snacks along with the healthy food. By way of example, The American Heart Association prescribes a most extreme of 6 to 8 teaspoons of sugar for every day (1 teaspoon is equivalent to 4 grams). Regardless of whether you’re not pouring the sweet stuff on your oat, it appears in subtle spots like “spaghetti sauce” and plate of mixed greens dressing. Eating as breakfast, squeezed orange and oatmeal can put you over the day by day restraint in one meal. Mind checks show that consuming sugar starts up similar territories of the cerebrum that are activated by cocaine, and as indicated by Dr. Check Hyman, it’s eight times as addictive as the opiate.
Instead of asking yourself, why healthy food is so expensive, ask yourself why fast food is cheap. According to the Fed-Up documentary, they say that “Fat-Free” comes at a cost. When you expel fat from nourishment, you have a major issue: The sustenance tastes horrendous. To adjust for the absence of flavor, nourishment makers include a lot of sugar. A few items that are named “low-fat” really contain double the sugar of the first, full-fat renditions.
Today our overabundance glucose consumption is making us fatter, and sicker at a dangerous rate. We see this as the greatest wellbeing emergency ever. It is spreading so quickly that it won’t be long until each man, lady, and kid on the planet will be influenced. Nowadays in school lunches, pizza and french fries are contemplated as “vegetables.”
A very important fact that says the Fed-Up film is that, you can be thin on the outside, however, carry dangerous fat inside. The consumption of processed food isn’t always visible. The phrase “TOFI” exemplify “Thin Outside Fat Inside” and alludes to people who apparently “escape” with eating whatever they need however are stowing away critical and terrible measures of fat inside their bodies. Exercise may not be the best weigh loss solution, since Gary Taubes says, “We’re not going to exercise our way out of the obesity epidemic.” To the end that, of course, not everyone agrees with this assessment of eating healthy every day. Some argue that it is cheaper to eat fast food due to lack of time to cook.
To sum up, because of the risks and negative effects, educators, medical professionals, and first of all parents should inform students of the risks and consequences from eating junk food. Schools should provide more documentaries about how harmful is what we eat. Also, parents should be educated to recognize that excessive eating, and consumption of sweet, salty and greasy food won’t maintain a healthy body and mind. Finally, every child should be taught of what is good or bad for their health. American food is being a treat for a big percentage of U.S. citizens.
