What is junk food? How does prolonged consumption of junk food affect us?

Asked by Topperlearning User 17th June 2016, 4:45 PM
Answered by Expert

Junk food refers to any food which is high in salt, fat, sugar or calories and low in nutrient content.

Fried snacks, aerated drinks, gum, sugar candy, most sweets and desserts are examples of junk food.

Prolonged consumption of such foods can deprive the body of a balanced diet which may lead to problems such as diabetes, heart diseases and obesity.

Obesity is a condition where excess fat accumulates in the body.
