Shops in the UK do not have enough healthy food and drinks. Most shops always have junk food like crisps, chocolate and sweets in the front and near the til and its very tempting but its also very unhealthy. Many of the causes of ill health in western society are due what we eat. Even cafes and small resutaurants always put a lot unhealthy stuff in food, in fact they force it upon you.
High cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, tooth decay and many more are due to unhealthy eating. Poor eating can contribute to and increase the risk of obesity, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes and various other chronic conditions. Junk food consumption alters brain activity in a manner similar to addictive drugs like cocaine or heroin. A lot of people love manyonaise and shops force it upon people. Supermarkets like Tesco should know better, and kebab shops are an culprit. There is a huge over saturation of KFC, PFC, kebab and other fried chicken shops. Not only that, walk into any cafe and order a meal and they will mix a huge, massive dollop of mayonnaise. This condiment is high in fat and other harmful dietary elements. Each tablespoon of mayonnaise contains 10 g of total fat and 1.5 g of saturated fat. Many people regularly consume far more fat than is healthy — particularly saturated fat. A tablespoon of mayonnaise contains 5 mg of cholesterol which is quite a lot. Excess cholesterol intake can lead to build-ups in your arteries. This can also potentially lead to heart disease, stroke, and similar health problems.
Fast food companies are outnumbering actual restaurants because their food is ridiculously affordable, easy-to-attain and sadly, delicious. The portions that junk food joints provide are a whooping five times more than what they were when they first opened their gates of hell. Companies know that the replication of food and all its unhealthy cousins will make it big among low-income groups, especially those that are situated in areas that do not have access to supermarkets that provide healthy food. That is why their food is priced so low where millions worldwide actually live off only junk food. Sainsbury’s is one of the good supermarkets which have a lot of healthy food if go down the right aisle(s).
Its not just unhealthy fats that are found in fast and junk foods, favorite chemicals used as part of the food making process are – titanium dioxide (found in dressings), azodicarbonamide (found in some Subway breads), sodium phosphate (found in coffee in fast food joints), monosodium phosphate (laxative), propylene glycol (chemical used to capture ground beetles), sodium acid pyrophosphate (a leather stain-remover used in some foods), sodium phosphate (foaming agent) and dimethylpolysiloxane (found in McNuggets and other fast food eats).
Health problems that are brought on because of regular junk food eating = asthma, strokes, type 2 diabetes, cancer (kidney / uterine / colon / breast / esophagus), liver disease, and cardiovascular diseases. What goes into junk food during its processing? Here’s the shocker – dyes (red and yellow are used, affecting behavioral attributes in children), additives (artificial sweeteners linked to cancer risks), high-fructose corn syrup, trans fat (partially hydrogenated oils / hydrogenated oils), MSG, emulsifiers, and of course sodium in high doses.
Every time we walk into a shop we are forced with junk food in our face. Supermarkets, cafes and kebab shops should be restricted or banned for forcing junk in the face of shoppers. Tighter regulations need to be implemented on this, but everyone is enjoying unhealthy food so much that no one is bothered to do anything about it. If after reading this article it brings sense to anyone, no one will buy the junk food from shops and do something about it to get it out of peoples face like putting it at the back of the shop. What no one realizes is junk food corporations are making millions by destroying peoples lives and the medical corporation is making its trillions through the re-issue of of tablets and pills in a repeated cycle instead of providing a cure.
Prevention is better than cure, there is a lot of natural cure out there but the medical profession be it the NHS or private they dont want to tell you about natural cures nor do they want to cure your problem because if they did their pill business would be gone and there will be no jobs for the medical profession and pharmaceutical industry.
