Say No to Junk Food, Say No to Burgers

Burger is one of the most-blamed food for health problems in America. Let alone the ham, the veg burger is also dangerous. First, it is a junk food, second it has over processed ingredients, and third is the excess sodium. Junk food results in obesity while excess sodium leads to high blood pressure and an increased risk for heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.
Processed ingredients have no essential nutrients. Many burgers available in the market contain hexane, a chemical used to separate soya oil from soya seeds, that can cause cancer. Toppings and cheese are always processed and without any nutritional value.
French fries make it more harmful, as these fries too have a bad health quotient. Instead of making burgers at home, substitute it with more healthier options.
Burger is made from refined wheat flour, which has no nutritional value and is full of starch sugar. If you wish to put on calories, please go ahead and enjoy a burger!

Ready to eat/Pre-Packaged Food

Now about packaged food - the definition of junk food is anything that is pre- prepared (processed) and packaged. Usually when something is packaged, the aim is to increase its shelf life, so additives & preservatives are included. Think about what is in the paper tea bag that contains the leaves. It,too, is made using chemicals - even butter paper is laden with certain chemicals. So we are eating non-veg tea plus chemical tea. It is always better to thoroughly look into packaged food prior to eating. There are countless cases where it is found that manufacturers mix expired items with new ones and repackage them. We should not make blind choices as far as health is concerned. Try to avoid packaged, processed and read-to-eat food as much as possible. Here's a recount of my personal experience - we would regularly eat packed upma and poha a few years back. This resulted in a severe form of food allergy that forced us to quit outside food at all costs. After that day, we have never eaten pre-packed food.
