It's a fine line between healthy food and excessive eating. I'm guilty of both. |
Some of the serious issues with eating fatty foods of the wrong kind include arterial blocking (where the arteries fill with sludge and reduce the blood flow, thus increasing the work the heart has to do and hence blood pressure), fatty liver (nasty as liver failure is fatal unless a transplant is made), gall bladder stones (very painful when they pass), plus a host of other issues.
Alcohol consumption (excessive), that is more than 2 nips a day for an adult male. Potential for brain damage (alcohol destroys braincells and connections etc), liver and kidney failures, and blood pressure issues as well as diabetes type II (adult or sugar diabetes as it's known in some countries).
Excessive sugar intake. Very nasty, it can effect the insulin balance and blood sugar levels, leading to type II Diabetes. Diabetes is going to be a massive issue in China in the future as it's already a big enough problem. Diabetes if left untreated or if dietary changes are not made and followed leads to limb loss, usually toes, then feet and legs, via gangrene, venous ulcers and blindness are some of the delights that await. Death is inevitable but can take decades to occur.
Refined foods such as white flour and other highly processed foods bring their own issues including colon cancer, bowel cancers and other digestive issues.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
My advice, eat in moderation and enjoy food but don't let your life be ruled by food.
