Enjoy the sandwich carefully….

Every person has its unique identity and their taste is common for certain types of things which are more popular in the market specially in food industries. Some prefer to go to a restaurant. Or make these foodie items in their home. Whenever you suffer from hunger, and you have no any type list of foodie items in your mind, their best choice is sandwich. In most cities, people always give preference to sandwiches .use of sandwich is the best option for school children and tea parties because of its more easiness..Sandwich is the temporary relief for hungry but it is not healthy for their good health. According to the dietician. If you are thinking about the nutritional constitutions are present in the sandwich , it is your wrong supposition. In bread nutritional constituents are very much less as compared to other food.Especially in white bread, there is no amount of fiber and grain. In bread there is a large amount of required salt present in it and due to this excessive salt, the percentage of sodium increases which is harmful to our body health.

Packed sandwich is harmful to our body. Sometimes the seller packs the sandwich in plastic which is very harmful to our body. If you store the sandwich for more than two days, it is very harmful to the body . Most of the people have their wrong concept about the storage of any item in the refrigerator, is always in good condition. It is completely wrong. In case of a sandwich, there may be a possibility of layering fungi.

According to researchers from Canada, blood flow in the arteries is slowed by 15-20 percent only two hours after eating a fast-food breakfast sandwich.  The study involved 20 college-age students who were of good health and did not have any form of heart disease.  They were asked to eat a high-fat (50 grams of more) fast-food breakfast sandwich.  The researchers measured the blood vessel function before the individuals consumed the meal and then measured it again two hours after the meal.

The results of the study showed that only a couple hours after eating the fast-food breakfast sandwich, blood flow in the arteries had slowed, some up to 20 percent.  The conclusion, a high-fat breakfast sandwich that many individuals consume daily can do more harm and more rapid rate than anyone ever realized before.

Some harmful effects of Fast food including sandwich

  • Obesity Risk

If you switch from a balanced diet of whole foods to one of fast food, the most obvious difference you’d register would be the enormous uptick in (largely empty) calories you’d consume per meal. Hello, belly fat. And what’s worse: “The high-calorie intake can lead to obesity, which puts you at risk for developing chronic diseases,” warns Jim White, RD, ACSM, owner of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios.

  • low nutritional content.

…nutritionally speaking. The high calories in fast food are accompanied by low nutritional content. Too much of that and your body will begin to lack the necessary nutrients it needs to function properly. “Your body is temporarily full with empty foods that don’t provide nourishment, so even though you may have eaten a lot of calories, you won’t be satisfied for long,” says Amy Shapiro, MS, RD, CDN, founder of Real Nutrition NYC.

  • Cancer Risk

PhIP is short for 2-Amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo(4,5-b)pyridine. According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, this catchy-sounding chemical appeared in over 100 samples of fast food grilled chicken that was tested in a 2008 study published in Nutrition and Cancer. The organization says the substance, which forms when meat is heated to a certain temperature, is associated with human breast, prostate, and colon cancers. After a class-action lawsuit was filed in 2009, the Daily News reported that Burger King settled the suit and agreed to post warnings in its California restaurants.

  • Risk of Heart Disease

Fats commonly found in fast food are made up of saturated fatty acids. Those are fats that are solid at room temperature, often derived from animals and some plant oils. You’ll find it abundant in, say, a cheeseburger. White warns that these fats can raise your blood cholesterol levels, which leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

  • Affect Memory and Cognitive Function

Fast foods like bacon burgers, some fried foods, and milkshakes are often high in saturated fats. “It’s been long established that saturated fats can negatively impact the heart, but there’s also research that suggests high saturated fat intake may negatively impact brain function and memory,” says Marisa Moore, MBA, RDN, LD. She adds that higher intakes of saturated fatty acids may impair memory speed and flexibility and prospective memory (your ability to remember to do what you intended). You intended not to pull into the drive-thru, remember?

  • Constipation

Dietary fiber (commonly found in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and seeds) plays a dominant role in the digestive system. Fiber helps keep your digestive tract working properly as it ushers wastes out of the body. It can help lower cholesterol and keep blood sugar levels normal.

  • Skin problem

Eating fast food may cause skin issues such as acne. “No, it isn’t the chocolate or fried components,” says Shapiro. “It’s the simple sugars, white flour and empty carbs like French fries that can be blamed.”

  • Excessive sodium

Some foods naturally contain higher amounts of sodium, but sodium is also added to many food products. Some of these additives are monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium nitrite, sodium saccharin, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), and sodium benzoate, which are used as flavoring or preservatives. Regarding dietary sodium limits, it’s suggested that adults stay under 1,500 milligrams per day, and should never consume more than 2,300 milligrams day. A single fast-food meal can actually exceed 2,300 milligrams. Too much sodium causes your body to retain water, making you feel bloated and puffy.

  • Affects Kidney and stomach

Sodium also can contribute to existing high blood pressure or an enlarged heart muscle. If you have congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, or kidney disease, too much salt can contribute to a dangerous buildup of fluid. Excess sodium may also increase your risk of kidney stones and kidney disease, according to Harvard Medical School.

  • Teeth decay

Frequent soda intake can lead to poor oral health, says Leah Kaufman, MS, RD, CDN. Drinking large amounts of soda increases the amount of acid in your mouth, which eventually causes tooth decay and cavities. “Some of your fast food desserts, such as McFlurries or Frosty, may also add to this,” she says. And that’s not all.

  • Mental Health affect

Recent research shows that eating fast food may cause a higher rate of depression, According to research , people who ate fast food were 51 percent more likely to develop depression than those who didn’t.

  • Blood Sugar Will Spike

Eating high-carb fast food increases your blood sugar. As you consume white-flour-based foods—such as the bun from a burger, or French fries with your sandwich or sandwich—your body takes in a large amount of white sugar. “Frequent consumption of these foods may lead to diseases such as obesity—which the American Medical Association has indicated is a clinical diagnosis—and diabetes,” says Kaufman.

  • Worry More

There’s a lack of omega-3 fatty acids in fast foods. Shocker! A dearth of those good fats can create a more anxious mental state. But it’s not just what fast food lacks that can cause anxiety. This stuff is also high in refined carbohydrates, which can lead to fluctuations in blood sugar. If your blood sugar dips into hypoglycemic levels, you can experience anxiety, trembling, confusion and fatigue.

  • Increase Inflammation

Phthalates, a class of endocrine-disrupting chemical toxins, are used to line plastic food and beverage packaging. Unfortunately, they’re not good for your health. One 2018 Environment International study found that people who often ate fast food had 35 percent higher levels of phthalate metabolites than people who mostly eat food bought at a grocery store and prepared it at home. Bad news for all-day-breakfast lovers since an Environmental Science & Technology study found phthalates to be associated with inflammation, and another study in Environmental Health connected higher exposure to phthalates with metabolic syndrome: a disease also commonly associated with increased levels of inflammation. Inflammation can cause a myriad of health problems from obesity to nutrient deficiencies.

  • Cholesterol level rises

Many fast foods served are derived from animal products, deep fried and served with cheese and high-fat dipping sauces. “The high fat content in fast food can contribute to high cholesterol, which can also lead to atherosclerosis. That occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries and prevents the flow of blood to the heart and organs,” says White. What’s more, fast food can lower your good (HDL) cholesterol, further putting your heart and your health on the line.

  • Risk of Cancer Continues to Grow

Sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite are additives used to maintain meat color and to inhibit bacterial growth. Both chemicals can break down into nitrosamines, substances with the potential to cause cancer, according to a meta-analysis published in the journal Nutrients.

  • Weakening your bones

As we mentioned, fast food is typically loaded with sodium. One Big Mac has 970 mg of sodium, well over one-third of the daily recommended allowance. A high sodium intake can cause your bones to weaken, leading to possible osteoporosis, Shapiro warns.

  • Food Dyes

A study by the National Toxicology Program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says 2-methylimidazole causes cancer in lab rats. That’s bad because 2-methylimidazole is an ingredient in caramel coloring which is used in most dark-colored sauces and sodas. It gets worse. Another of these coloring agent’s ingredients is 4-methylimidazole. Researchers tested the effects of 4-methylimidazole on lab rats and mice and concluded that there was “clear evidence of carcinogenic activity of 4-methylimidazole in male and female B6C3F mice.”

  • Lethargic…

With large portions that are often high in fat, fast foods like burgers, fries, and milkshakes, fast food often delivers a hefty dose of calories. Those large portions often leave you feeling full and lethargic,

  • Hyperactivity

Anxiety and depression aren’t the only mental effects that fast food can induce. Eating a diet high in artificial colors and preservatives may play a role, as well. A review of related research published in the journal Clinical Pediatrics indicates that many artificial colorings, along with the preservative sodium benzoate, increase hyperactivity.
