The consumption of junk food has risen significantly in recent years, and it has several negative consequences for individuals and public health in general.
The availability and accessibility of junk food have increased significantly, leading to higher consumption rates. This trend is often attributed to changing lifestyles and the influence of Western culture. Junk food is often designed to be visually appealing and packed with flavors that stimulate the taste buds. Children, young adults, and even some adults are more likely to consume junk food regularly. Peer pressure, advertising, and convenience often play a role in this demographic preference. Junk food is associated with several health issues, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and dental problems. These foods are often calorie-dense but nutrient-poor, leading to excessive calorie intake without providing essential vitamins and minerals.
