Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on The Affects of Unhealthy Eating on the British Population. It needs to be at least 1250 words. The guidelines are intended to educate individuals on healthy eating and better food choices and portion sizes. This paper will examine some of those guidelines.
Part of the problem lies with individuals taking responsibility for their eating habits and adhering to these guidelines. “It is a unanimously accepted and widely condemned fact that the population of the world, in the prosperous regions at least, is getting fatter. Obesity, usually linked with declining levels of physical activity, is often cited as the single greatest cause of unnecessary death and disease” (Gard, Wright, 2004). It is also important to expand one’s knowledge of the risks of an unhealthy diet and obesity. In the case of individuals who are 30lbs or more overweight, their chances of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, hypertension, and heart disease are raised exponentially. Not to mention, obesity causes depression, fatigue, irritability, low self-esteem, sleep apnea, joint pain, and many other uncomfortable circumstances.
Several factors are contributing to the epidemic of obesity. One problem that has taken the United States by storm is the increasing number of fast-food chains. In every city in America, as well as European cities, fast food chains are lining every street corner. The food that is offered is quick and inexpensive. This makes it therefore quite convenient and popular. In today’s throbbing society, families are so busy with the demands of life that taking time out for good nutrition is not a priority. The easy solution to a quick stop meal at the local fast-food chain seems to be the easiest way to have dinner for many. The problem with this is that fast food is not only incredibly high in calories. it is also high in serving portions and preservatives.
