Reading the book the ‘Blood Sugar Solution’ not only endowed me with helpful information about diabetes,but also opened my eyes to another serious disease that is progressing fast all over the world. I was brought to my attention that Obesity is one of the underlying cause for diabetes and also for various other diseases that could assault our body and bring significant harm to our system.What is even more alarming is that childhood obesity is drastically on the rise especially among school children. Evidently it has become a cause of concern. A fad for junk food or fast food is increasingly growing amongst children which sooner or later will bring catastrophic results when the diseases related to it sets in.Junk food may tantalize our taste buds but does more damage to our digestive systems.The extra fats in them not only make us gain weight but are notable to damage the liver and heart.Adults should start promoting and creating awareness about eating healthy food so as to encourage school children develop healthy eating habits.Children should be encouraged to eat more of cereals,green and leafy vegetables,fruits,milk,eggs and curds and yoghurt as a part of their daily diet.Green salads have a lot of fibrous elements that will do good for our health.As parents, we must work effortlessly to set boundaries for eating foods like hot dogs,pizzas,burgers,sweets and candies,as they are the culprits that cause obesity.Furthermore,it is n’t too late to turn around eating habits.To prevent further destruction from this epidemic called 'obesity' ,the foremost thing we got to work on our part is to convince children to indulge in eating home cooked meals as foods cooked at home are packed with nutritious values and not as much of calories and fat.
