Reflective diary about Fast Food by Umma Salma

Currently most of the people prefer fast foods and foods cooked in microwave oven instead of preparing and cooking homemade foods that takes longer. The trend of having food quickly either has advantages or disadvantages. Food is contains little amount of nutrition and high content of harmful ingredients is generally referred to as junk food. Fast food is considered harmful for health and attempts are being made to minimize the intake of these dangerous food items. One would be amazed to know the amount of sugar and the accompanying obesity is just one of the aspects of junk food consumption.

The major ingredients that are used in fast food basically have a huge proportion of meat and less fiber. Human eating habit is another factor that leads to problems caused by consumption of fast food. Health problems caused by fast food include obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. Many of us tend to frequently eat this kind of food that has a high fat and calorie content. And also it is not digest fast food.

In my opinion, the only benefit of eating fast foods and foods cooked in microwave oven is to provide to save time. There are many people who live in rush and have loads to do. In this case, it’s hard to find time to cook a meal. Therefore fast foods and foods cooked in microwave oven emerge as a solution for those people. But there are many drawbacks of fast foods that outweigh this advantage. Since fast food restaurants became widespread, people do not eat balanced and notorious. That causes serious health problems later. Especially for children, to eat balanced, healthy and notorious is essential for proper growth. To eat so much fast food in childhood might cause permanent growth disorders that might affect on children’s psychology as well. Rates of obesity increase inevitably just as proliferation of eating fast foods. Obesity is not just to be overweight. It results significant health problems. In some countries, obesity rates are so high that the governments of those countries must take measures instantly to prevent this increase. Also the belief that microwave ovens trigger cancer is noteworthy one, and one that I believe in there is the same thought about fast foods too.

All things considered, we can conclude that to eat fast foods and foods cooked microwave ovens is to play with our health’s for the sake of saving a little time. When we lose our health, neither money, nor time can get it back.
