Why Eat Healthy Food?

We are usually bombarded by commercials of unhealthy food. So if there's more unhealthy food out there, why should we fight it and start eating healthy?

An article on this subject matter will never be enough to fully explain why healthy eating is important. Therefore, for the time being, we will be discussing the importance of eating healthy food for our body's proper growth.

We all know that our body is composed of living cells and that these cells hold us together and makes us whole. Cells come in different forms. I believe you've heard of the red and white blood cells, which are the components of our blood. Our organs and glands are also made up of cells, each unique in its structure and use.

You might ask, "so why the discussion of cells?" Well, these cells help keep us alive, and these cells fights off diseases. They are constantly moving, defending and holding us together. If this is how vital a cell is in order for us to live, will you allow one of these cells to die?

We eat food not just to satisfy our hunger. Whenever our tummy growls, it is not just a signal that it needs to digest on food, but its also a signal that our cells are in need of nutrients. And here is where the tricky part comes in.

When we consume food, it is out digestive systems that break down the food. And as I mention earlier, our organs are also made up of cells. Therefore, when your food is digested by your cell-made organs these food not only turn into energy but your cell-made organs absorb its nutrients and that made it possible for the cells to grow and multiply. And when your cells grow and multiply, they contribute to your growth and physical development. Your cells need nutrient-filled food so that they can grow, protect and multiply properly. And if they are not properly fed, they can cause harm to your body.

One of the harmful effects of improper cell growth is the formation of tumor. Tumor is not synonymous with cancer of course, but most of then not, tumor will lead to it. So in order to avoid such a devastating illness from afflicting you, then we should start practicing healthy eating.

Proper cell growth, maturity and distribution start from having a healthy eating habit. Do not wait until diseases have afflicted you before you'll start eating right. There is no age limit in starting have a better way of living, that's why it is never too late to start now!
