Junk Food Effects: Any country can progress only when its growing young generation is healthy. A country can accelerate its economy only when the young generation is fit.

People in the age group of 15 to 59 years constitute 62% per cent of the total population of India. The hopes of making India a world guru in the coming times rest on this young generation. However, making this generation a victim of junk food obesity, heart disease, diabetes and mental diseases are being given free of cost.

Stomach goes away by eating junk food

More than 3 and a half thousand people aged 12 to 19 years were studied by Brazil’s SAO Paulo University for 5 years. It has come to the fore that the youth who eat more junk food, their stomach goes out. Along with this, due to the accumulation of fat near the lower limbs, liver and intestine, diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol catch.

Research from Brazil’s SAO Paulo University, published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, found that of the 12 to 19-year-olds who ate up to 64% of their total diet from junk food, 52 percent of those youths had the potential to pass out. The problem had caught on.

Obesity increases the risk of many diseases

Apart from the problem of stomach exit, fat had accumulated near the liver and intestines of 63% of the youth. Due to which these youth had become at risk of getting infected with diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol at an early age.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the problem of obesity among young people is becoming the biggest problem of the 21st century, which the whole world is facing. However, this problem is very big in India. According to the data released in the year 2020 by ‘Institute of Economic Growth’, an autonomous research institute under the Government of India, the number of children aged 5 to 19 years who were obese in the year 2020 in India was more than 17 million, Which is estimated to increase to more than 2 crore 70 lakh by the year 2030.

Effect of junk food on children

Junk food is the main reason for this obesity in children. In the year 2019, a survey conducted by the Center for Science and Environment on children aged 9 to 17 years revealed that 93% of children eat packaged junk food more than once a week. At the same time, 59% of the children of 13 to 17 years were such, who used to eat junk food daily or drank packed beverages.

How junk food obesity is trapping India’s youth population in its trap, it can be gauged from the fact that 42% of the youth of 20 to 29 years in India are victims of obesity. At the same time, more than 62% of the youth from 30 to 44 years are facing the problem of obesity.

180 kg weight at the age of 36

To what extent does obesity ruin a person’s life. A living example of this is Dhiraj Agarwal, 36, living in Ghaziabad. His weight is more than 180 kg and while speaking, he starts feeling breathless. The face starts sweating. His spine is bent. Doctors have said that benetic surgery will have to be done at the earliest, so that the chances of survival remain intact.

However, getting the surgery done for Dheeraj remains the most difficult task as he does not have the money to pay the full cost of the surgery. At the same time, his insurance claim has been hanged in the balance by the company by taking out technical shortcomings. In fact, due to the bending of the spine of Dheeraj, the length of Dheeraj sent by the doctors to the insurance company was less than the length taken while taking the insurance. Based on this error, the insurance company has refused to pay the full amount for the surgery.

India is the youngest country in the world

India is the biggest youth power in the world. Half of India’s population is below 28 years of age. In this respect, India comes among the youngest countries of the world. Whereas in countries like China and America, the middle age of people is 37 years. Apart from this, this age is 39 years in Australia, 40 years in Russia, 42 years in Canada and 49 years in Japan. That is, half of Japan’s population is over 49 years old. Meaning half the population is old.

In such a situation, our advice to the youth of India is to eat nutritious food at home instead of junk food because India will be able to become a world guru only when the youth of the country is fit. The responsibility of the youth of today’s India is to take care of the country instead of taking care of the stomach.
