Why Eat Healthy Foods
Healthy foods are delicious and fun. People who don’t eat healthy foods, don’t drink water, and don’t get exercise may get obese and/or get heart diseases. In 2007, 616,067 people died from heart diseases. That is why people should eat healthy foods.

People are getting heart diseases for not eating right. A heart disease is, “Any condition of the heart that impairs it’s functioning.” There are many heart diseases such as: Coronary, Ischaemic, Hypertensive, Inflammatory, Valvular, and many more. Eating unhealthy foods like: Hamburgers, french-fries, cakes, and more can cause heart diseases.

(Eat more fruits and veggies not breads and cereals)
Eating healthy foods, drinking lots of water, and getting exercise is important for a healthy efficient body. Eating healthy foods like: Beets, broccoli, spinach, greens, oranges, bananas, apples, and more is probably not going to cause a blocked blood vessel. Blood vessels are the part of the circulatory system that transports blood throughout the body. There are three major types of blood vessels: The arteries, which carries the blood away from the heart; The capillaries, which enables the actual exchange of water and chemicals between the blood and tissues; and the veins, which carries the blood from the capillaries back toward the heart. According to doctors, physicians, scientists, and my Dad, “Water helps to not be dehydrated, it carries minerals and vitamins throughout the body, helps with concentration, and prevents dehydration.”

When you purchase food, check the ingredients for “Hi fructose corn syrup.” Soon the companies who use “Hi fructose corn syrup” are going to change the name to “Real corn sugar,” which they are the same thing. Here are some healthy foods that don’t have “Hi fructose corn syrup”: Pears, apples, oranges, grapefruit, and many more!

I understand that the food that is readily available is easy and fast. Eating fast foods can cause you to, grow differently, die faster, and more. Since our population of people keeps eating junk food then everybody would have a habit of eating unhealthy foods.

To prevent Congestive Heart Failure, Varicose Veins, Pulmonary Embolism, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, and especially Immobilism, and more health problems, start a healthy nutritious diet. A diet is, “Usual food; planned feeding; for medical reasons; and/or follow prescribed diet to lose weight.”
 
Being in shape and maintaining a healthy body is easy once it is already healthy. Being not in shape and having an unhealthy body is hard to get back to where you used to be when you were a child or a baby. All the research shows that having a healthy body is important. To increase the chances of having a long healthy life be sure to eat healthy foods, drink lots of water, and get plenty of exercise.
