As I take another bite of this noxious repulsing junk, I realize how its clogging my arteries until that point were my heart could give out and have a heart attack. That is why eating healthy foods is very important. Not only can junk food hurt my body, it can also prevent me from getting necessary nutrients, and leads to bad eating habits.
