Why Avoid Junk foods


How do you define Junk Foods? It is defined as a food which has little nutritional content and often high in salt, sugar, fat, and calories. Junk foods are highly processed and eaten instead of a balanced diet. They are available in departmental stores, groceries, restaurants, etc. Most of the junk foods fall on fast food or snack food categories. Both snack foods and fast foods are harmful to our health.

Some of the examples of junk foods are potato chips, candy, ice cream, noodles, snacks, packed foods, canned foods, fried fast food, sugary carbonated beverages, etc. They have low nutritive values because they may be expired or rotten.

We must avoid junk foods because they are very harmful to health. By eating such foods, we may suffer from food poisoning. Also, consuming such type of foods alters brain activity. The other problems occur after consuming junk foods are constipation, diarrhea, malnutrition, etc.

Junk foods may be tasty and attractive but are very poor in nutritive content. They do not contain the nutritious values required by the body. Therefore, we should eat nutritious foods and balanced diets to protect and maintain our health. We should avoid fast and junk foods. We should eat green vegetables, fruits, milk, eggs, pulses, cereals, etc. Proper care and attention should be given while consuming and selecting food items.

If possible, we should grow fruits and green vegetables in our own garden (benefits of organic farming) because they are very good for our health. The food should not be overcooked. The nutritive elements of food are reduced while overcooking. Also, stale (dry or no longer fresh) food is harmful to our health. Therefore, we should always eat fresh foods. Say a big NO to junk and raw foods.

Harmful effects of Junk and Fast food

For children, consuming junk foods doesn't provide the required nutritive values for the growth and development of the body. It affects a child's physical development in harmful ways. Children who eat fast and junk foods regularly have a higher chance of suffering from obesity and chronic illness. As a result, obese children are more likely to face heart disease later in life. That is, they will suffer from heart disease at a more advanced age.

Hence, junk foods should not be promoted especially to children. They should be encouraged to have fruits, fresh vegetables, milk, eggs, meat, balanced diets and so on. It is a fact that high consumption of junk foods are the reason for rising rates of high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. It is a fact that consumption of excessive fast and junk foods can weaken self-control and lead to overeating. Isn't it? We should avoid those foods which are the combination of sugar, salt, and fat. They have a high calorie but very less nutritional elements.

According to various study and research, a sleepless night may make us likely to eat junk food rather than healthier choices like vegetables and balanced foods. As a result, it will adversely affect our health. We should rather choose fruits and high nutritive value foods in order to maintain and promote our good health.

Importance of Modulation in Communication System

There is a huge importance of modulation in the communication system. It is defined as the modification process of the message signals in the communication system. In the modulation process, the message signal of very low frequencies is impressed. And, only the carrier signal of high frequency is passed through the transmission process.

It is one of the important techniques in which the addition of signal is done to an optical signal carrier or electronic wave carrier. It is very important as it uses the properties of a periodic waveform the most. It is used in communication just to pass the signal which bears information from one source to another destination.

Here, a transmitter is used which is normally present to modify the message signal. In this process, the message signal is modified in a suitable form and it is transmitted over various communication channels. This whole process of modification of message and carrier signals is termed as modulation.
The need for Modulation Pro…
