Say No To Junk Food

I think that all junk food should be banned in schools. Why? Well, first of all, kids are becoming fat. Secondly, it can cause type 2 diabetes, and lastly, it can be bad for your bone health.
Going back to my 1st reason, kids are getting fat. Overconsumption of junk foods is one of the most popular ways to become overweight. Many junk foods are extremely high in calories, and it's easy for a person to have more than the recommended number of calories when they eat junk foods. Banning junk food in schools would reduce the amount of junk food that kids eat.
Coming to my 2nd reason, type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is becoming more and more common. Overconsumption of junk food can increase one's risk of developing it. There are two reasons why type 2 diabetes can be caused by eating too much junk food. 1. Many junk foods contain a high volume of sugar; And 2 when high volumes of sugar are consumed over a long period of time, the body can stop producing enough insulin. These can lead to Type 2 diabetes. In addition, Type 2 diabetes can be induced by becoming overweight or obese. In fact, many people who have Type 2 diabetes are able to cure the condition by losing weight.
Last but not least, it affects your bone health. During childhood, bones are developing. Growing children need a significant quantity of calcium every day for bone development. Without enough calcium, serious defects in bone development can occur. In addition to the lack of calcium in junk food, many junk foods contain high levels of sugar and fat. This can weaken bones.
In conclusion, junk food should be banned at school, because kids are becoming overweight and even obese, it can cause type 2 diabetes and it can be bad for your bone health.
