Effects of junk food on daily life.
Fast food is food that is prepared quickly and is eaten quickly or taken out. Although there are a growing number of healthier fast food options, most fast food can still be classified as junk food. Eating junk food on a regular basis can lead to an increased risk of obesity and chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and some cancers. Junk food high in sodium can lead to increased headaches and migraine. Junk food high in carbs can trigger outbreaks of acne. Eating excessive amounts of junk food may increase your risk of depression. The carbs and sugar in fast foods can lead to dental cavities. What you eat and drink each day affects your health and wellbeing, both physically and mentally. Good nutrition, along with regular exercise will help you maintain a healthy weight, while reducing your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease. However, consuming regular amounts of fast and junk food will impact your quality of health, and will have negative effects on your body.Author(s): Jane Davis
