Subject: Junk foods leading to obesity in teenagers

Sir

I would like to express my views through the space of your esteemed daily regarding the bad effects of junk foods, especially on teenagers.

Teenagers between the age of 12 to 16 become obese nowadays. And the blame should be upon junk foods. Junk foods have become accessible to all kids and they are preferring junk over healthy food. Due to the excessive consumption of foods like pizza, burgers, chips they are gaining weight. Kids are now diagnosed with obesity at such an early age. The companies selling junk food must make people aware of the potentially harmful effects of these foods. Also, parents should regulate the consumption of such foods and not indulge in their kids’ desires. These are the formative years of teenagers and they should focus on building a strong physique and immunity. We must all come forward and be more responsible about buying such foods. We must protect teenagers who are the future of our nation.

I hope my concern will be highlighted and people will take necessary actions.

Yours sincerely
Arup Das

Subject: Lack of immunity due to consumption of junk food

Sir

I wish to bring attention to the various bad effects of junk food on our health through the space of your renowned daily. One of the major harmful effects of consuming junk food is that slowly reduces the immunity levels in our body.

Junk food is easily available and due to the huge marketing campaigns of these foods, people are generally tempted to buy them. We are avoiding our regular healthy food and are less interested in having vegetables and home-cooked meals. This unhealthy balance of food is causing danger to our overall immunity system. People are falling sick easily these days, especially the youth. Junk foods such as fried chicken, burgers, coke are high in calories and have a high amount of sugar and oil in them. These foods can have long-term effects on our bodies and losing immunity power is one of them. We must take care of ourselves and control our temptations. We should all remember that health is wealth and for a temporary desire we must not put our health into a hazard. 

I hope my views will be highlighted in your daily and people will realize the importance of having an immune body.

Yours sincerely
Priyanka Shastri

Subject: Junk food leading to poor heart conditions

Sir

I will be highly obliged if I am allowed a little space in the column of your distinguished daily on the ill effects of junk food on our bodies. 

This generation has witnessed a revolution in the food industry and fast or junk food is one of them. One cannot ignore the temptation of consuming junk food, but we must not forget the bad effects it has. High consumption of junk food is leading to poor heart conditions. Many researchers have already proved that a high amount of saturated fat is available in most junk foods. This high level of fat has a direct effect on our hearts. The bad effects not only end there, but they can also have an effect on our brains. These two are important organs of our body and we must take care of our health. We should all be aware of the potentially harmful effects of these junk foods and regulate our consumption. It is high time that we move forward by having a balanced diet combined with physical exercise. One should neglect their health in the indulgence of junk food.

I sincerely hope people will pay attention to their health from now on and not take it for granted. 

Yours sincerely

Junk food has become part of our lifestyle. But they are slowly poising our bodies and ruing our health. These foods which include deep-fried potatoes, chickens, pizza, pastries, aerated drinks have high calorie and sugar levels. They can have deadly effects on our bodies. People start gaining weight and become obese due to the high consumption of such foods. Not only that it causes high blood pressure, kidneys become affected, teeth also decay gradually. Surveys have also proved how these junk food make people lethargic and causes mental breakdown. There are numerous bad effects of consuming junk food. We must prevent ourselves from having such types of foods and must be aware of all the side effects of junk food. It is our responsibility to look after our healths and less eating of junk food will only benefit us in the future.
