13 Effects of Fast Food on the Body Healthline

9 hours ago

1. Effect on the digestive and cardiovascular systems. Most fast food, including drinks and sides, are loaded with carbohydrates with little to no fiber. When your digestive system breaks down these foods, the carbs are released as glucose (sugar) into your bloodstream.
2. Sugar and fat. Many fast-food meals have added sugar. Not only does that mean extra calories, but also little nutrition. The American Heart Association (AHA) suggests only eating 100 to 150 calories of added sugar per day.
3. Sodium. The combination of fat, sugar, and lots of sodium (salt) can make fast food tastier to some people. But diets high in sodium can lead to water retention, which is why you may feel puffy, bloated, or swollen after eating fast food.
4. Effect on the respiratory system. Excess calories from fast-food meals can cause weight gain. This may lead toward obesity. Obesity increases your risk for respiratory problems, including asthma and shortness of breath.
5. Effect on the central nervous system. Fast food may satisfy hunger in the short term, but long-term results are less positive. People who eat fast food and processed pastries are 51 percent more likely to develop depression than people who don’t eat those foods or eat very few of them.
6. Effect on the reproductive system. The ingredients in junk food and fast food may have an impact on your fertility. One study found that processed food contains phthalates.
7. Effect on the integumentary system (skin, hair, nails) The foods you eat may impact your skin’s appearance, but it might not be the foods you suspect. In the past, chocolate and greasy foods like pizza have taken the blame for acne breakouts, but according to the Mayo Clinic, it’s carbohydrates.
8. Effect on the skeletal system (bones) Carbs and sugar in fast food and processed food can increase acids in your mouth. These acids can break down tooth enamel.
9. Effects of fast food on society. Today, more than 2 in 3 adults in the United States are considered overweight or obese. More than one-third of children ages 6 to 19 are also considered overweight or obese.

Why Is Fast Food Bad for You? New Health Advisor

6 hours ago

1. Higher Risk of Heart Diseases. The bad fats (trans and saturated fats) in fast food increases triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in your blood, leading to plaque buildup in the arteries.
2. Reduced Brain Function. Research on animals has shown that fast food causes a decrease in ability of memory and learning new skills. The bad fats in junk food, such as trans fats, can replace the good fats in the brain, interfering the signaling mechanism.
3. Type 2 Diabetes. By eating junk food, you create a sudden spike in blood sugar due to the processed nature of the junk food. This shock to your metabolism adversely affects your body’s ability to utilize insulin, which can lead to type 2 diabetes.
4. Potential Kidney Problems. The salt content is another reason why fast food is bad for you. A diet high in salt can disrupt the balance of sodium and potassium, which can cause a great tension on your kidney.
5. Possible Liver Damage. Some studies have shown that fast food is almost as harmful to your liver as alcohol. Eating fast food for four weeks can adversely affect the liver enzymes.
6. Digestive Issues. Fast food has almost no fiber. This means a higher risk of constipation and hemorrhoids. Junk food’s high fat content can increase stomach acid production, stimulating the inner lining of stomach.
7. Increased Cancer Risk. Many studies associate a diet low in fiber with cancers of the digestive system. And one of the defining aspects of fast food is that it contains almost no fiber.
8. Weakened Immune System. Proper nutrients are needed to build up the immune system. By eating too much fast food, the body doesn’t have the proper vitamins and minerals to establish the proper defenses.
9. Depression, Especially in Teenagers. With their hormones being out of whack, teenagers are already going through behavioral changes and mood swings. Consuming fast food can make the emotional issues worse and even lead to depression, because the food lacks the nutrients needed to hormonal balance.
10. Weakness and Fatigue. Ironically, even though fast food is usually very high in calories, it often makes you feel weak and fatigued. This apparent contradiction is due to the fact that fast food is low in important nutrients such as vitamins and minerals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is fast food considered to be unhealthy?

Although nutrition experts might be able to navigate the menus of fast-food restaurant chains, and based on the nutritional information, compose apparently ‘healthy’ meals, there are still many reasons why frequent fast-food consumption at most chains is unhealthy and contributes to weight gain, obesity, type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease.

Are there any health benefits to eating fast food?

With a growing number of fast-food chains offering nutritious options for the health-conscious consumer, it's easier to take advantage of the convenience of prepared food without the excess calories, saturated fat, salt and sugar that give fast foods a bad rap. But you need to be diligent in your choices.

How are fast food consumption and diet quality related?

The authors examined associations among fast-food consumption, diet, and neighborhood fast-food exposure by using 2000–2002 Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis data. US participants ( n = 5,633; aged 45–84 years) reported usual fast-food consumption (never, <1 time/week, or ≥1 times/week) and consumption near home (yes/no).

When did the CDC start tracking fast food?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released data on fast food consumption gathered from 2013 to 2016 in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, or Nhanes, a program that continuously monitors the health and nutritional status of Americans.
