A silent escalating epidemic of malnutrition is the underlying cause of most deaths in Modern Caribbean Society. This phenomenon is significantly heightened with the increasing availability and accessibility of Fast Food Restaurants situated all over Guyana. Most of which are franchises, established initially in the country with the highest percentage of Obesity in the world, The United States of America.
Indeed Fast Food Restaurants provide Job opportunities for Gayness citizens, but unfortunately that is the sole benefit, compared to the sundry detriments they pose o many areas of life. Firstly, the Caribbean is a tropical paradise, blessed with acres upon acres of land, to cultivate healthy food with ease, because of the warm climate. Fresh grown vegetables, and home cooked food is superior in terms of health standards to the food Available in Fast Food Restaurants, on many terms.
Restaurants In Guyana
A basic example would be the health hazard, due to the resurges of oil in the Fast Food Restaurants. Moreover, left over oil, becomes rancid after four days, which is extensively dangerous to cook with, because it may cause lesions in the arteries, roving space for fat to stick and clog. In addition the meats from these Fast Food Restaurants, are highly preserved and contain food additives, which may cause Castro- intestinal problems, and have said to be cancerous.
With all that has been said about the health risks that Fast Foods cause, it is must better to utilize the fresher and naturally grown foods, available right in Guyana. It must be said, with the Westernizes of Gayness culture and the first world influence, there has been much more Fast Food Restaurants being built since 1975. Hence it is only social to conclude that more people would eat from them, explaining the the growth of Obesity by 80% over the past two decades.
This is a very unhealthy lifestyle for an individual, mot forgetting that the medical management of obesity is difficult and complex. The reason being Obesity allows for an ocean of diseases to affect the body. For instance obesity is associated with the development of osteoarthritis, breast and endometrial cancer, liver disease and most prevalently cardiovascular disease. The issue remains with over quarter of the Gayness Adult population overweight and ineffective use of resources, to treat them all.
Apart from the multiple harmful effects of Fast Food Restaurants, and unbecoming culture of dependence and quite frankly laziness has evolved. There is no longer an appreciation of the diversity of foods offered in Guyana, instead people prefer Fast Foods because it is easier to get since there is the drive thrust, delivery and pick up services. Moreover, this postmodern way of life that has been adopted by Gayness takes a toll on them financially, especially, because the amount of money spent on a meal, can suffice to kook healthy food for up to four days.
With that being said, it can be agreed, that a major socioeconomic problem is certainly the last thing Guyana needs. In all Fast Food Restaurants are mainly and originally an American influence, and it has been expanded and developed over the years, centrally promoting an unhealthy is not enough to compensate for the many diseases and health problems it may cause. Moreover Guyana as a developing country, cannot afford any major setbacks at this time, especially one that has the potential to affect the most important resource, which is the human resource.
