We all know that childhood obesity has risen and we have to figure out the fundamental reason of our children's overweight. There are multiple factors that play a role in childhood obesity, but the most common reasons are: overeating, lack of exercise and parents are not responsible for their children's good health. First, in the food industry, they advertised through the media and sell worst kind of junk food contains a high fat, high sugar and salty food. Many fast food combos have come with sugar sodas instead of natural fruit juices. One of the craziest things we encounter is the lack of consideration of high calorie; high sugar drinks in the diet.
Therefore, I strongly think that the sale of the junk food in school canteens should be banned for the sake of everyone. First, junk food draws up the health issue among the children. Most junk foods are high in fat, salt and sugars (Family Journal, 2005). Therefore, excessive intake of junk food leads to weight gain and followed by obesity due to the high fat content in junk food. Subsequently, the obesity will then lead to heart disease, osteoarthritis and other cancers.
The President and Fellows of Harvard College (2014) stated that the “incessant and unavoidable marketing of unhealthy foods and sugary drinks” (p.5) discourage people to keep a healthy diet. Thus, obesity can be caused by the unhealthy diet of an individual. Another cause is the sedentary lifestyle lived by various individuals. As a result of modernisation, most people migrate from rural
These products do nothing helpful for our bodies at any cycle of life. With all the additive ingredients in our fast food products it’s no wonder our nation is the highest for obesity. Sticking to the main food groups such as grain, veggies, fruits, dairy, meat, and even oils and some fats can lead to a healthy lifestyle with an abundance of energy and focus. Sound easy right? But in reality it is actually quite difficult to stay dedicated to a diet and a healthy life style.
But parents are feeding their kids food full of chemicals, sugar and fat that is sold to us by big companies. Parents are not taking responsibility for what they put in children’s mouths, and it is consequently the children who suffer. Parents give their children foods that have only been around for 50 years and it is this modern food that is causing chronic illnesses. They need to feed the kids what they should be eating, not what they want to eat. If a child is obese, it is very unlikely they will lose this weight that they have accumulated as a child in their adult years.
In the article “Don't Blame the Eater” the author David Zinczenko blames the fast food industries by accusing that the fast food centers are the one causing obesity in small and young children's. He claims that the fast food industries aren't providing any kind of warnings because of which children's are consuming excessive fats and gaining weight day by day and resulting into this disease called “overweight”. In my opinion, however it isn't the fast food industries that makes a person fat, it is just a genuine
They simply don’t care about what’s in their food products. Because consumers don’t care, the way they eat becomes an unhealthy habit. Consumers don’t care how much they eat and little do they know that corn sweeteners have become a leading cause of obesity and Type 2 diabetes in the United States. We have grown so much corn that our environment’s been overexposed, so we have no choice but to put it in everything we eat, drink, and put our health at risk. Even with this overexposure to corn, consumers don’t question how corn has affected our bodies and our environment.
Or is it that we have such an abundance of food there is no need to be conservative over buying too much at the grocery store (or fast food joint) or saving that last handful of leftover pasta? What about both? Even though efforts are being made to reduce food waste in America, Americans are seemingly creating more of an environmental and economic issue by wasting more food than recycling it. As of 2012 there are over 313 million people in the United States alone (U.S. Census Bureau, 2012). With a number this high, it may not be such a big shock to see how much food is being wasted in America.
Erik Wartemberg English 101 3/2/2011 Healthy and Unhealthy Food in America In today’s generation, a healthy and unhealthy food plays a big role in youths and adults generation. Today’s foods are not what it used to be, foods back then were grown and cooked naturally without any chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors added, due to economy downfall, people rely on junk foods and fast foods a lot more than healthy foods.
