You’re what you eat – and that’s true, according to the latest research. Because it turns out that fast food addicts can suffer from multiple health problems at once.
A new survey in India proved thaty those who consume fast food on a weekly and daily basis have a weaker-than-average immune system.
That’s why, here’s a list of the 5 most common health problems that can affect you if you frequent a nearby burger!
1. Type 2 diabetes
The most common “side effect” of fast food foods that are consumed irresponsibly and in large quantities is type 2 diabetes, which is caused by the large amounts of salts, sugars, and unhealthy fats in foods. Nor can it be neglected that these products do not contain fiber, just a lot of carbohydrates, which causes sugar cravings, obesity and insulin resistance in the body.
2. Cardiovascular diseases
Burgers are full of saturated and trans fatty acids, which drastically raise the rate of bad (LDL) cholesterol in the body and reduce the amount of good (HDL) cholesterol – a process that can lead to cardiovascular disease.
3. Weight gain
According to research, the more fast food we eat, the more extra pounds we have. This discomfort is due to the high carbohydrate and low fiber content they contain (mentioned earlier), which causes the accumulated calories to be deposited on us as a fat pad – especially in the abdomen, waist and hips.
If you haven’t experienced weight gain on your own, but you’ve already noticed that after a larger serving of french fries, your abdomen swells more than average, it’s likely that your body is also distracted by a hurry full of harmful substances. You can prevent dehydration with a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day and lots of vegetables and fruits.
5. Liver problems
Recent research suggests that fast food foods are at least as harmful a livers for such as alcoholic beverages. This is possible because processed, genetically modified (GMO) foods contain more toxins than natural and nutritious foods – which can later cause liver problems.
Despite all this, you have no reason to worrymra if you only occasionally come up with a hamburger or a french fries in the fast food bar next door. But make sure that one such “violation” does not become part of your eating routine.
