fruits and vegetables are really good for health, then try to take lots of salad daily... that will help for losing weight too.

Not all snacks are dangerous to our health. But junk foods are that is why they are called as junk foods haha. They contain a lot of spices which are not really needed by our body. Just remember to drink a lot of clean water even if you are eating foods of any kind. It helps eliminate the waste in our body.

I like snacks a lot but I don't eat them frequently. This is because snacks are indeed not good for your health. Of course, taking snacks sometimes wouldn't really affect much. Yet some people are eating snacks way more than acceptable amount. That increases the patient suffering from diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and obesity which proves to be some of the greatest killer around the world. Those are just a small list of the possible health problems that you will get from eating too much snacks. So better control just how much snacks you eat.

If you make you chips yourself and cook them in a pure cooking oil, like pure sunflower oil, they would be reasonably healthy. However, the ready-made chips you buy in the supermarkets and fast food outlets, are full of additives, and therefore, not so healthy. Junk food also contains a lot of additives and fat, so yes, it's detrimental to your health. KFC, which you would think was one of the lesser evils, is saturated in fat... I love KFC but don't eat it that often for that very reason. Brightest Blessings.

I also think it is good to eat homely food and to avoid food from hotels and fast foods and also good to healthy food. I think most times we use good oils and other things when we make food at home.

I think one should try to control eating chips and should eat, but not always all time.

Hi Ajithlal, they say "if you have lot of money and want to upset your digestive system go and have junk food." And now even the health care takers are themselves voicing that junk food is a major health hazard and should be avoided as far as possible.

hi ajithlal, I not eat much junk foods. Even when I was a kid I not was not used to those foods because my mom always restrain me from eating those kinds.She keeps on saying to me that those foods have no nutrients at all and is very bad to our health. Instead of letting me buy junk foods, she buys me sandwich.I got envy with other kids during those times because I admit that I really love the taste of junk foods but I cannot eat as often as I can.As I grow up, I realized how lucky I am obeying my mom. My aunt has their store selling stuffs like foods, drinks, medicines and others. When she cannot stay on their store, she will ask my cousin to stay there.Whenever my cousin will be bored, she always eat some junk foods on their store. Her parents is not that strict on her. She can eat whatever she wants.She always have that habit which is not good. And then, the time comes that she gets the bad result of her habit. She was sent to hospital one time because of difficulty in urinating. The doctor diagnosed that it was a urinary tract infection. And when her parents asked where did she get that disease, the doctor tell them that there are lots of factors in which to get that disease. And one factor of that is eating junk foods.My cousin cursed junk foods that time because of the pain. And from that, everybody got a lesson. Hope this helps. Happy mylotting

It is always great to take good foods, but now a days the junk foods are selling a lot than the other food. Most people like snacks and other foods.

Junk food is bad for you in ways you can not even imagine. The joke is they say eating low fat is best when it is not. It is best to eat REAL natural food. http://www.coastalpost.com/08/04/15.html http://www.healingdaily.com/detoxification-diet/sugar.htm

I don't think it is good for you. It is a good idea to cut dsown on the junk foods and eat more healthy foods. I don't snack too much and when I do, it try to eat something more healthy.
