Question and answer
Q: three facts about excess or lack of micronutrients in fast food diet
A: In our modern world with increasingly cheap, high calorie food (example, fast food ? or ?junk food?), prepared foods that are high in things like salt, sugars or fat, combined with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, [ increasing urbanization and changing modes of transportation, it is no wonder that obesity has rapidly increased in the last few decades, around the world. Obesity is a growing
global health problem. Obesity is when someone is so overweight that it is a threat to their health. Obesity typically results from over-eating (especially an unhealthy diet) and lack of enough exercise. With obesity comes increasing risks of Cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease and stroke) ? already the world?s number one cause of death, killing 17 million people each year. Diabetes (type 2) ? which has rapidly become a global epidemic. Musculoskeletal disorders ? especially osteoarthritis. Some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon). In addition, childhood obesity is associated with a higher chance of premature death and disability in adulthood. The WHO adds, ?What is not widely known is that the risk of health problems starts when someone is only very slightly overweight, and that the likelihood of problems increases as someone becomes more and more overweight. Many of these conditions cause long-term suffering for individuals and families. In addition, the costs for the health care system can be extremely high.? In Europe, for example, the WHO?s European regional body says that ?obesity is already responsible for 2-8% of health costs and 10-13% of deaths in different parts of the Region.? ]
