Junk Food: Food is the main source of fuel in our body. But eating right is must. In this 24×7 busy life, people are compromising with the food in some or the other way. Truly it is a wrong practice as nothing happens instantly, effects (may be positive or negative) cannot be seen immediately by our body, it is a slow process and one day it speaks at its own, depending upon the problem faced by one’s body and then one rushes to the doctor and from here one starts developing a strong relationship with the doctor and doctor is happy as you are his permanent customer and slowly starts believing doctor more than self. Easy to say one gives remote control into the hands of others.
Therefore, it is always worth to take care of self from the very beginning such that never get a chance to visit a doctor by stopping the consumption of harmful food.
It will be hard to believe that harmful food is only the culprit to make us unhealthy. Some of the fast harmful food like- reserved fast food, soft drinks, ice creams, chocolate, toffees breads, junk food, jams, jellies, fried foods, preserved foods etc. is rapidly increasing instead of consumption of natural food.
Recently, a teenager has suffered with deaf and blind condition after living entirely on the diet of chips, sausages and crisps.
The 17 year old had stopped eating proper meals when he was seven years old. He is the first person in the UK to go blind and deaf with continuous eating of junk food, revealed by the mother of the boy.
The family lived in Bristol, UK, said initially they suspected that something was wrong when the teen’s hearing slowly started subsiding down when he was just 14 years old.
It became apparent later by series of subsequent tests that he had “Avoidant-Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and his successive lack of nutrition had broken down his optic nerve, causing a condition known as nutritional optic neuropathy (NON).
His mum, who is around 40 years, is quite worried and said the loss of his hearing and sight meant he will be without job and no social life.
In the beginning parents were unable to believe about this disorder (ARFID). It was terrifying for us when we came to know that the damage is irreversible.
