The traditional meals of the day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, have a new partner: the sugary and salty snack. Our favorite junk foods are easier to find than ever before, and the snack industry is growing by leaps and bounds. As of 2003, the industry was taking in an estimated $66 billion annually. Increases in many serious diseases are on the rise due to this trend, and many are being seen in younger and younger people. While sugar and salt are both natural food substances, and something the human body requires, the body only requires them in limited quantities. This book teaches readers that what we put into our bodies can either help or hinder our weight, energy levels, mood, health, and lifestyle. Students will learn about all of the extreme health dangers hidden within seemingly innocuous snack foods. Fascinating sidebars and a thorough resource section support the narrative.
