A majority of children and teenagers spend long hours in front of television and lead sedentary lifestyles. This has led to a generation that is obese and overweight. Children these days are introduced to a variety of junk foods from a young age by parents and friends. These junk foods comprise of high levels of sugar, salt and saturated fats which increases the cholesterol levels and thereby alleviates the risk of cancer and heart disease.

This in turn is quite harmful for the human body and contributes to the unhealthy lifestyle. Even cattle are injected with hormones making the milk we consume highly unhealthy.
