More and more people are becoming seriously overweight. Some people say that the price increase of fattening foods will solve this problem. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
The rate at which some persons become obese is alarming; therefore, people suggest raising the number of consumables that contribute to the problem, but I strongly disagree with this notion because of the reason I will address in this essay.
There are many contributory factors to weight gaining, which includes, firstly, a sedentary lifestyle. If one eats and does not work to expend it, it accumulates gradually until it becomes visible. A survey carried out by world health organizations in 1990 on the causes of increasing obesity among adults revealed that 40% of the factors go to the above-mentioned issue. Secondly, is ignorance, the knowledge of what and quantity of food to consume is dependent on the person’s mindset, for instance, in the part of the world I come from, it is assumed that gaining weight is evident of good living hence ignoring the hazardous health impact of obesity.
Although if junk foods which attribute immensely to obesity are out of rich probably due to cost it will reduce its customers thereby decreasing the population of fat people, however, individuals environment will greatly influence the person’s eating habits. People in urban areas, for example, are exposed to fascinating eateries displaying various, even unhealthy cheap foods and snacks which are mouthwatering more so rich friends are eager to buy for poor friends.
In conclusion, I strongly disagree with the notion of adding money to increasing fat food; instead, factors such as sedentary lifestyle, ignorance and environment should be looked into to curb the population of fat people.
