felt like a daily need.

cholesterol in our body
Soft drinks are also becoming a trend in our society nowadays but many people fail to remember that drinking soft drinks adds dangerous toxins in the human body, which can effect you bones, skin and even kidneys in a very bad manner. In addition drinking
soft drinks can also cause teeth decay and obesity.

is over weight.

• Heart Diseases:
Junk food diet is a major cause of heart diseases. Myocardial infarction is a sever heart failure which is due to plaque formation in the arteries which demands the heart to put in extra effort to pump blood, on the up stream there is a lack of returning blood to the heart. This causes two damages to heart - heart fatigues by the continuous extra effort it makes and it suffers oxygen supply.
• High Cholesterol
