I bet everyone has eaten a kebab or any other fast food at least once in their lives. I understand you, seriously, eat some fast food once in a month will do no harm, but not daily. This kind of food is very unhealthy for your organism.
There are many factors that make this unhealthy but we’ll just present a few of them.
Firstly, junk food causes obesity as it is some extra energy that will stay on your hips. In our times, we see 1 out of 10 people obese and it’s mostly because of fast food. With its addictive chemicals, junk food will make you want to eat it every day resulting into obesity.
Secondly, fast food preparation units add a lot of sweeteners to this kind of food. It gives us indeed our required taste but it’s not good at all for our body. Also, sugar-loaded drinks such as coca-cola, sprite or any other drink like them are a quick rush of sugars to your body.
I think we all know the fact that our junk food doesn’t have the best ingredients. And it’s logic, really, low prices for the food with low ingredients equals profit. When you eat you have no idea which came from where but you eat it because it tastes good.
You know how every food has some expire date? Yeah, no one cares about that there. They just throw it in a fridge and it can stay there for a month before being used. If you see the kitchen at a preparation unit you’ll see how dirty there is. They don’t care about hygiene or food safety for their clients. Sell sell sell.
There was even a movie in 2004. Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock released the movie “Super Size Me” which asks the question to the viewers “If fast food claims to be a healthy diet option, can we survive on it alone?”. Spurlock himself was the subject for this experiment. At the start of it, doctors said that he was the picture of health. By the end of the experiment his overall physical had deteriorated close to being fatal. By the third week of the project, all three doctors begged him to stop in order to avoid irreparable damage.
Did you know that people which eat fast-food have an increased risk of dying from a heart disease by 80 percent. Pretty scary! Junk food create a higher risk of heart disease as it has high levels of saturated trans fats found in most of the food.
Apart from the various health problems it gives you, fast food is a waste of money. Junk food consumes too much money compared to preparing food at home. Why spend your budget on something that harms your body?
A terrifying study showed that fast food burgers aren’t really burgers. They have 50% water and only 2.1 to 14.8 percent meat which is a pretty low number compared to how it should actually be. If you’re asking yourself what makes up the rest of it, chemical fillers and preservatives, mostly.
In conclusion, I can guarantee that an occasional bite with your friends won’t be that harmful. However, don’t make it a habit. This fast food thing was made as an alternative when our regular healthy food wasn’t available. Adding junk food to our regular “diet” will just cause irreversible damage to our body and brain. So, try to avoid this kind of food at any moment in order to stay healthy and save your body.
