How Unhealthy Diet Affects Wellbeing
Diets high in fat, sugar, red meat, and processed food are contributing to the increases in obesity and diabetes all over the world. Poor food choices also increases one’s chance of heart disease, stroke, organ damage, and even cancer.
With over 60% of the population being overweight, early death and rates of degenerative disease is a real concern felt by society as a whole. Health care costs associated to poor diet and sedentary lifestyles are at an all-time high. The productivity levels of people decrease as health worsens. There is also a concern that today’s generation of children will be the first in history to have a shorter life expectancy rate than that of their parents.
One of the easiest methods of prevention is through healthy lifestyle, including healthy eating habits.
