I came here too say that. Too much of them and too little physical exertion are bad for the health.
It's our job. I'm getting fatter and fatter too.

I'm with the others, your basic premise is flawed.

But if you look at human history, when we were hunter/gatherers, food availability was spotty. We needed to stock up on fat for the lean times. We evolved a taste for fat and salt. Potato chips and french fries are simply excuses to stuff fat and salt into our mouths.

Too much of the same thing is bad for you. People tend to eat too much from the food groups they think taste good, and too little of the groups they don't like. Balance is the key. Fat, salt, sugar; it's all good for you, as long as you don't have too much of them.

If you only like apples, and that's all you eat, you'll get sick.

Once you eat salmon you can never say that good-tasting foods are bad for health. Or strawberries.

Sure, chocolate-chip cookies aren't the most healthful product, and neither are potato chips, but there are plenty of healthy foods which also taste good.

To be honest, while I love almost all fish and seafoods, salmon is pretty icky to me. I can eat it, but I don't particularly like it.

But pass any other fish to me and I'll take care of it for you.

Only in June. That is the local season. The long distance ones are simply not as good.

I can do the long distance ones on vanilla ice cream.... that is another story altogether.

I think Chinese are more conscious at this. Less fried, more boiled.

Chinese food also isn't that healthy. Many Chinese dishes have a lot of fat, for example pork meat.

Depends on your definition of Chinese food. If you mean what American's eat in Chinese restaurants, yes, its heavy on fat. If you mean what a typical Chinese programmer eats, that is different.

Exactly. The foods that taste good are those which we needed but which historically were hard to find -- to ensure we took advantage of every rare opportunity for them that we had. What makes those foods bad for us is that today they are very easy for us to obtain, so we tend to eat too much of it.

They aren't. Where did you get that idea?

In Mumbai,India people most of the time College Students survive on Vada Pav(Potates Stuffed with Gram flour boiled in Palm Oil ) and its really good to taste but once you keep on eating it everyday you keep on getting obese introducting problems to your health


Also here Roadside Chinese is of Big craze Chichken Schezwan fried rice or Chicken fried rice , Chicken Lollypop ChillyStyle and people of all ages are just addicted to it and in future it causes issues and reason for Obesity

Also 80-90% in US suffer from heatstroke because of Junk food by having cheese Burger etc. I just wanted to know why eating such kind of food creates an fat issue Why have God made this way... Why not the opposite i mean eat Salads,strawberries and get fat...Eat as much as Cheese Burgers ,local Chinese foods and stay thin

Last time I checked, cheeseburgers didn't put out much in the way of ultraviolet radiation or heat. So how could they cause heatstroke?

And not much infrared either (Infrared is usually used for heating stuff).

"Heatstroke" is probably a translation error. Let's go with "obesity" for a working hypothesis.

You mean "heart attack"? "Stroke" is a brain complication.

So you are asserting that 80-90% of US citizens have heart attacks? Really? Please show us where you obtained this statistic.

And, you do realize that that site is an advertisement, right?

Probably the same place as most statistics (80 to 90% of which are made up on the spot).

Maybe it was just taken out-of-context. The stat of "80 to 90% of Americans have heart attacks" is just silly. You can just try to grab 100 people off of the street, and I will bet good money against getting that stat. Common sense will tell you that with that number, the mortality rate of Americans would be very low.

Possible missing context could be... an age qualifier, an region qualifier, or more likely, it was comparative, such as "Americans have a 80 to 90% higher chance of heart attacks". etc.


Regardless, Bear is correct, it would always be a good idea to quote the source of any statistics.... or what you get is what Mark Twain use to say, that there are "lies, damned lies, and statistics".

Probably most of numbers have STD than heart attack..80-90% ?? You've might visit some cardiologist office in USA by mistake. If such statics was true, in that case USA would attack Japan to get healthy heart than Afganistan or Iraq.
