                                            Junk Foods and its Harmful Effects


      Junk foods that taste yummy and spicy may be good with its delicious flavor but what 
does it carry? Healthy or unhealthy stuff is always a big fact to analyze. Health complications 
are more in number today as most people prefer eating junk foods and prepacked foods 
that are available in the stores. Most of us getting too busy with these days opt for a quick 
food that fills our stomach instantly. We neither care for health value nor for the natural 
calories in the foods but just the taste and quickness of the food comes on our mind.

JUNK FOOD – RISKY EFFECTS

     Junk foods that taste wonderful on our mouth have got more harmfulness within. As 
junk foods contain excess of cholesterol, saturated fat, sugar, salt and more calories they 
are not recognized as stable food that adds nutrients and energy to the body.

Lack of energy and brain power

     Junk foods that we go for contains nothing but empty nutrients that calls for more 
calories. It does not hold any good factors that support the immune system of our body. In 
most cases they are being filled with hurtful carbohydrates, cholesterol and fat stuff that 
affect the general wellness of the body. Junk foods as a whole does not support with any 
needful energy that mess up one’s wellbeing. As brain cells does not get the needful 
nutrients and energy their activities get slowed down affecting the over all performance of 
the brain.

Heart diseases

     Junk foods acts as the base to initiate heart diseases as they contain more salt and 
cholesterol and other harmful ingredients. Excess salt that tastes good on junks are 
responsible to raise the blood pressure and cholesterol that adds up to the inner walls of 
arteries forming plaque like matters thus resulting in heart blocks and sudden attacks. 
Cholesterol levels and blood pressure are to be kept under control to prevent heart 
diseases.

Stomach, liver and intestine problems

     Besides initiation of heart disease junk foods also contribute their role affecting ones 
liver that hits the metabolic activities. Junk food at times suppresses the normal activity of 
metabolism as there is not constant healthy food stuff to digest. Insulin secretion is being 
regularized that harms the metabolic activities. Digestion of junks with excess saturated fat 
releases more toxins that are harmful. The digestive system including the stomach, liver 
actions and intestinal absorption are wholly affected by the un-hygiene food stuff.

     Nutritionists usually recommend natural food such as fresh fruits, vegetables and home 
cooked that are more hygienic and safe for one’s health with limited taste makers and 
added colors.
