Sub: Health hazards caused by junk food

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the health hazards being caused by eating the so-called ‘fast or junk food’.

Globalization is not confined to the economy only. Even our food habits have been globalized. The craze for fast foods like burgers, pietas, and pasta has increased in recent years. The youth have developed a special liking for them. McDonald’s, KFC, Pizza Huts are leading multinationals who promote junk foods.

The junk food, no doubt, tingles our taste buds. But it has little or no nutritional value. The general public, particularly, the youth must know the health hazards caused by the regular eating of junk food. It causes obesity. Habitual eaters suffer from many other diseases of liver, digestion, and kidneys. Let us remember that fresh food cooked in our kitchen with liberal use of vegetables and fruits are really tasty as well as nutritious. Junk food is good only for ‘junkies’.

Yours faithfully
