Many people believe that in
era of extremely fast life, the
which is readily available and ready-to-eat is really helpful to cope up with
constraints. In my opinion, albeit
do offer some advantage in terms of convenience of cooking and
management, the health-related detrimental effects outweigh any benefits it offers.
On the one hand, many argue that ready-made meals like fast
and partially cooked, frozen foods are
saving for the working class. To put it another way,
is really important in
competitive business environment and those who have to work days and nights would find it extremely convenient to order fast
online or on the telephone.
, students and those working at night-shifts can easily order the
of their choice due to its 24/7 availability.
, another advantage it offers is the ease in which some of these can be prepared. One does not require expert cooking skills to cook it. Most of these, like noodles and soups, simply require boiling in hot water with some additives given with the package to get it ready.
, the health hazards of
diet are extremely dangerous for those who consume it routinely.
, the preserved
has very poor nutritional value as most of the essential vitamins and minerals would be denatured and lost during the preservation process.
, the preservatives added to
foods are proven carcinogens and has been implicated in the rise in frequency of various cancers in humans.
, these foods are very rich in fat and refined sugar and have contributed significantly to the rise in incidence of obesity, diabetes and ischaemic heart disease.
To conclude, admittedly there are some minor benefits of convenience
, yet its poor nutritional value and contribution to the rise in frequency of diseases like cancers, obesity, and diabetes is beyond question and outweigh the advantages. I,
, recommend a reduction in consumption of
foods as much as possible
