Now day junk foods are highly used all over the world. Some junk food also have high nutrition value such as pizza, fish and potato chips. Mostly junk food has replaces our nutritional food in our diet. Mostly children’s become addicted to these food. But they also have effects on our body. Junk food increases childhood obesity, diabetes, heart diseases and chronic diseases. Some studies shown that they can cause brain damages. Mostly high consumption of junk food decreases the use of nutritional food. It also causes depression in teenagers, fatigue and weakness, fluctuation in blood sugar level, risk of kidney and liver diseases.

A study published in 2013 in JAMA Pediatrics shown that Fast-food and full-service restaurant consumption, respectively, was associated with a net increase in daily total energy intake of 126.29 kcal and 160.49 kcal for children and 309.53 kcal and 267.30 kcal for adolescents and with higher intake of regular soda (73.77 g and 88.28 g for children and 163.67 g and 107.25 g for adolescents) and sugar-sweetened beverages generally. Fast-food consumption increased intake of total fat (7.03-14.36 g), saturated fat (1.99-4.64 g), and sugar (5.71-16.24 g) for both age groups and sodium (396.28 mg) and protein (7.94 g) for adolescents.

Effects of junk food on body

Regular use of junk food lead to various effects on our body.

Focus and energy

Focus and energy are very important for children’s and women health. By eating junk food energy and concentration level decreases. Energy and focus are important for children at school age for their study and physical activities. Physical activities are important for children’s and junk food does not provide all their necessary nutrients for their activities. Lack of physical activities effects their health and mental level and exclude them from social activities.

Skin and Bones

Junk food also effects bones and skin because they are rich in carbohydrates which increase sugar level of blood and cause acne. Eating high amount of fast food it can cause eczema (inflammation and irritated patches on skin) in children. Food that have high level of sugar results in bacterial growth in mouth produces acid that damage dental cavities and tooth enamel. Fast food contain sodium salts and increase in sodium results in osteoporosis.

Respiratory system

Increase in obesity increase the respiratory problems and treatment of these problems are much sophisticated. Children who eat fast food has high calories, carbohydrates and fats and have less fiber, proteins and other essential nutrients that results in obesity. Obesity can cause shortness of breath, wheezing and asthma. Eating high amount of fast food by children can results in asthma.

Children behavior

High sugar, saturated fats, sodium and unhealthy food are responsible for behavioral problems in children. When children become addictive to fast food they do not eat normal foods which change children behavior. Aggressiveness in children is also related to fast food.

Digestive and cardiovascular system

Fast food contain high amount of carbohydrates. Digestive system breakdown these carbohydrates into simple glucose and release in bloodstream. In response to glucose pancreas produces insulin, which transport sugar in body. When sugar is absorbed blood level of glucose decreases in response to that pancreas secrete another hormone called as glucagon that helps liver to consume stored sugar. Due to these changes blood sugar level changes. High sugar level cause spikes in blood sugar and high spikes in blood sugar cause diabetes. High sodium level in body effects blood pressure.

Liver damage, increase risk of cancer and kidney diseases

Eating high amount of fast food can affect the liver. People who ate more junk food liver enzyme changes in few weeks. This process is similar to those occur in alcoholic abused people.

Tackling With Difficult/Weird People Around

Why is it important to manage our dealings with people?

We are social animals, we have to deal, meet and socialize with people for our survival in the society. We cannot live without interaction with people, we need others for carrying on with our lives. Not every person behaves or responds the same way, different people are dealt differently.

Everyone loves to think and imagine their selves as kind and calm personalities, may be it makes us happy, gives pleasure or may be just for self satisfaction. Even though we all tend to be polite and calm most of the times and try to deal the situations and people as fair as it can be. But as we confront any strange behavior or prickly personalities, we may not stuck to those standards in our minds anymore, we may lose our temper too in response to those behaviors and hence this delusion is quickly dispelled every time. Lesser number of people are there who still are able to manage their temper. But most of us cannot.

Who actually are difficult people?

Difficult people can be easily identified by their behaviours. These personalities could be anywhere like any of your co worker, your friend, class mates, fellows, boss, neighbours, customers or even any stranger. And they can ruin your day in seconds from a perfectly fair and good day into highly depressive and annoying moments of your life. Highly aggressive and challenging people are so much difficult to deal with. There are certain categories of such people grouped according to their behaviours, actions, nature and personalities. They include

  • Whiners / Downers

  • Short-tempered/ Short-fused

  • Sociopaths

  • Bullies

  • Better thans

  • Passives

  • Tanks


They are sometimes also called downers.

These are the people, who can never be satisfied. Yes! even if you do a lot for them, you try to do best of yourself to make them happy, you sacrifice for them, you prefer their priorities over your own , still they are never satisfied they are never going to be happy. They always have something very negative to say and talk about. They will start complaining and  blaming you for a small mistake or sometimes for no reason, they would not care for what you are doing for them and what you have already did for them. They are always there to critique, complain and judge others. They don’t care what have been done for them. They will only count and focus on the negative things that happened because of you. So they are extremely difficult to please.

Back stabbers:

A backstabber is a person who only pretends to be our best buddy and good friend In front of us , but turns around and betrays us, by spreading lies and hurtful and frustrating gossips about us. But whatever is the reason behind this behavior, it's very important to protect ourselves from them. But still if this situation continues to happen and we find it difficult to stay and deal with them we must move away, end our relationship and carry on with our lives. These people are most annoying people and no one wants to stay and interact with them

Short Tempered:

These are the people who are unable to control their anger, they get angry on very small things , especially when something goes against their expectations, something they want that this should be like this but do not went like that, annoys them. Anything that hurts their feelings and self respect is not bearable for them and thus they find it difficult to manage and control their anger. Hence, it becomes difficult for the other person to deal with them in such situations.


These are the persons that have some sort of personality disorders, they are antisocial people that manifest their extreme antisocial behaviors, they do not like to socialize with people, they do not prefer society gatherings . These people have very bold behaviors.
They mostly prefer to be alone and antisocial. This behavior is related to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Hervey M. Cleckley, an American psychiatrist)

Better Thans:

What my personal experience conclude is that the better thans are the most annoying and tough people on the entire planet to deal with. They are the people that are living their lives on a single phrase ‘We know it all’.

Extremely show off people who do not value the knowledge as well as feelings of the other person. They do not want anyone else to get over them, infact they tend to impress the other person for what they are and what they know even if it is wrong. It seems to them that what they do or what they know is the best and perfect thing ever. They compare their selves with others and always try to be superior to the other person even if they are not.


Passives are also sometimes called as Push-Overs. These people have very less and minute contribution with the conversations and work with people, they step aside and let other people do the hard work and other stuff, and prefer their own comfort over others.


These are the people with bossy attitudes, they tend to be explosive and handful. What they want they will get it and they are going to do anything to get what they want even if they are hurting the feelings and self respect of others, they only prefer their needs without caring about what others want.

Is walking away the best solution?

Yes! Most of the times walking away from the conversation or the situation is the best thing one can do, but not every time. Sometimes walking away is not the solution, you may not have that option so u cannot ignore them may be because you cannot carry on with your work or life without dealing with them or sometimes it is not possible to go further without satisfying them.
So , Not every situation is escapable and at times u have to deal, you have to be patient until or unless the other person walks away. This is in the cases where you are dependent on the other person or the other person is superior to you (like boss and worker). And especially in most sensitive relationships, where leaving is not the possible solution.  One have to deal carefully with patience and must find out an appropriate and best solution to that.

How to change these people?

Unfortunately, we cannot change each and every person we have to deal with, so the best solution is to look out at our own attitudes and behaviours. We must change our selves in order to deal with these people. We are not able to change how people behave with us but we can change how we react to them.

How to deal?

There are certain strategies and tactics one can follow to deal with difficult and strange behavior and make dealings fair and more effective

Being Patient and cool-minded

The very first thing is to maintain our composure, the less reactive we are, the more we can use our better judgment to handle the difficult situations and weird people.

One must be patient and calm when the other person is arguing even for no reason

First of all we have to look out for the other person that who is he/she? Our best friend?

Or any person with whom we have a very close and sensitive relationship.  Or he is just a stranger or any person with whom we don’t have any stronger relationship but just familiar with.

In both cases at that time we have to b patient and keep our mind calm, must not lose or temper even if the other person is wrong. Because arguing will make him more angry and annoyed. In case of a close friend we must try to cool him down and just not to argue at that moment, later on a day when he gets back to normal we can talk politely with him and tell him about his mistake and that he was arguing wrong, at that time he will value your feelings and will better understand that he was wrong he will feel sorry for that. In other case being silent or walking away is more preferable but if the person later on discusses the issue with you again then at that time you may let him know that what he did was wrong.

Opposite outlook

Another reason for aggressive behaviours of such people is differences in perspectives. Determining what the other person wants and sometimes compromising with that will make the situations better and fair.

Staying Silent:

A better solution to make the other person feel sorry for what he did , is to keep quite and step away for sometime, or stop your interaction with them. This strategy is best in cases where the other person is extremely important or close to you. Like one of your best friend , sibling, parents, close colleage etc. If you mean something to them they will not give up on you and must feel sorry about their deeds, even though they are thorny personalities and aggressiveness is in nature. If still your silence is making no affect on them, and they are still not feeling any regrets for what they said or what they did then it is useless to expect any more. So try to overcome your emotions and decrease the level of your attachment.

Fly high

As the saying goes: “You can’t fly like an eagle if you hang out with turkeys!

Always keep in mind one thing. Your time! Yes your time is valuable, do not waste it on people who don’t even worth it. So unless if there is something very important to argue for, you don’t need to do it, don’t try to convince someone who is negatively entrenched for an un important reason. Just be diplomatic, don’t get hyper, don’t take it serious and carry on with your work. No need to waste your precious time on people who don’t even deserve it.

Being a strong Problem solver

Try to solve the problem rather than making the situation more complex, Be a strong person, have patience and just try to know what actually is happening around you. If you want to deal with such people you must not lose your temper or get immediately hyper, instead try to be a strong problem solver. This will make the other person automatically change their attitude towards you and they will probably try to behave in a positive manner because you have just solved their issues.

These are some strategies or you may say tactics to deal with difficult people when you cannot afford to ignore or escape them. Must try at once, hopefully these are gonna work.

And yes! Let me know if u find this article helpful. Good luck everybuddy!

Legalization Of Marijuana : Why Marijuana Should be Legalized?

The legalization of marijuana is a controversial issue all over the world. Peoples are confused about its uses. It is not always easy to research on its health effects and to answer the people about its effects on their health when they use it as a drug. We know that marijuana has also its good effects when it is use as chemical agent in some medicines. You can read about its useful aspects in this link also Usefulness of Marijuana and its impacts . But here we have to discuss about the legalization of marijuana. In a survey that was conducted in America in 2014, 43% people were in favor of legality of marijuana and according to 65% people it would be legalized in next 10 years.

 Marijuana has legitimate medical effects

The discussion about marijuana as a harmful drug has been dominant for a long period that a large number of people had trouble to accept its demonstrated medicinal effects. Opinion of people on legalization of marijuana has dramatically shifted in last two decades. This year some states passed law permitting epilepsy patients to use strains of marijuana high in CBD. We list Epilepsy, along with pain from AIDS and nausea from chemotherapy as afflictions that marijuana has been shown to alleviate. One could add glaucoma, Crohn’s disease and muscle spasms related to multiple sclerosis, and a host of other conditions to that marijuana has effectively treated. Medicinal uses of Marijuana

Marijuana is less harmful than alcohol or tobacco

It is less addictive than alcohol or tobacco and is more favorably compares to other drugs on nearly every health metric. There is a honest debate among scientists about the side effects of marijuana but dependence and addiction of marijuana are minor problems as compared to alcohols and tobacco. Evidence shows that moderate use of cannabis does not pose risk for otherwise healthy adults. Side effects of cannabis are usually euphoric and mild, while alcohol changes it’s addicted into barroom brawlers, domestic abusers or maniacs behind the wheel. Further marijuana is not directly linked with serious diseases like tobacco with cancer and alcohol with cirrhoses. On the other hand cannabis doesn’t affect the lungs more than tobacco and alcohol.

 The benefits of criminalization are minuscule to nonexistent

The prohibition of marijuana is quite expensive. A fair analysis of criminalization must also consider its benefits. According to a survey in 2012 approximately 30,000 people were arrested in New York for having marijuana. 90% of the arrested people had no subsequent felony convictions. Only 3.1% committed a violent offense. If the government wanted to find a good “minor offense” correlate for violent, dangerous crimes, cannabis use doesn’t make a lot of sense. Even taking it in high quantity doesn’t inspire one for  violence, and there is no real case to be made that smoking marijuana causes one to go on to worse crimes.

Ban on marijuana has vast social costs

The harmful effects of prohibition run from wasted resources to ruined lives. Our police spend thousands of hours to arrest, book and imprisoning marijuana smokers. These arrests take police away from more urgent issues. The hundreds of thousands of people who are arrested each year but do not go to jail also suffer; their arrests stay on their records for years, crippling their prospects for jobs, loans, housing and benefits. With persistent unemployment and underemployment, and many parts of the country experiencing a housing crunch, a single marijuana arrest can have dire consequences.

 Legalization of Marijuana won’t lead to increased use

The use of marijuana will not be increased if it will be legalized because when it will be legalized it will be under the control of government with standards and regulation and price control. There is already some early evidence that regulation would also help combat teen marijuana use. Marijuana Legalization is the first step in a broader initiative of treating marijuana use as a public health issue.
