Stop eating junk food at School!!!

STOP EATING JUNK FOOD AT SCHOOL!!!


What do you think that junk food does to your body? Did you know that 

1. Junk food can cause people to become obese,
2. It can affect brain function 
3. It can be very hard on your heart.


To start off, junk food can cause people to become obese. Do you really think being obese is good? Well it's not, food is the fuel for your body, it gives you energy and it makes you feel good about yourself. If you eat the have the wrong type of fuel your body will not work properly and you can become sick which is not good. Being obese can cause heart problems, diabetes and stroke. Normally schools talk about this type of thing, like eating healthy, taking care of your body and things like that, it can make you feel horrible about yourself, and people may tease you for being obese.  Nobody wants to be fat and unhealthy, but there are plenty more reasons not to eat junk food. 



Secondly, it can affect your brain function and can cause depression. Our brain controls pretty much everything in our bodies, it is like a machine ( and a very complicated one at that ). It also causes the hippocampus to shrink, the hippocampus it the part of your brain which is responsible for long-term memory, learning and mental health. It helps with the storage of a long-term memory of a location of a person or object. Without it we would never be able to remember where our own house is.



It also is very hard on your heart and liver. With all the high levels of saturated fat and sodium in junk /fast food going into your body, it helps contribute to heart diseases by raising you blood cholesterol levels. Also with all the fatty acids going into your body by eating junk food, it can lead to fat going into your livers which, over time, can cause your liver to start dysfunctioning and get diseases. That's not very good, is it? 


Why not? Just try and stop eating junk food or in the future you will seriously regret it because...
1. Junk food can cause people to become obese,
2. It can affect brain function 
3. It can be very hard on your heart.
