Bunk The Junk

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We need your help to make a real difference, to save lives .

We see all kinds of junk food and ready to eat products being advertised actively on media channels. What we don't see is how they impact health on a global level.

We’re currently facing a global obesity epidemic, with 42 million children under the age of 5 either overweight or obese across the world. This figure is estimated to increase to 70 million by 2025.

If current trends continue, not only the upcoming generations will have shorter lives, but also the present generation of children will likely develop health problems like:

•cardiovascular diseases

•insulin resistance (often an early sign of diabetes)

•musculoskeletal disorders (especially osteoarthritis - a highly disabling degenerative disease of the joints)

•Colon, endometrial and breast cancers

•Respiratory problems.

So we ask that you do two simple things:

•please sign this petition to show your support for better food awareness against this growing problem of the lack of healthy food availability in school, college and work canteens across the world.

•Most importantly, share it via your social networks and encourage more people to support this initiative.

If you sign this petition you will be promising to try a junk food free week and will make a promise to promote this junk food free lifestyle to your family and friends.

If you help us get hundreds of people to sign this petition, we can create a powerful awareness movement, which will make a difference to the lives of the present and next generations. We can’t do it without you.

Let's make a small effort this week to actively analyze the food we eat and make healthier choices. Sign it, share it and help us inspire individuals to make better food choices!

Let's bunk the junk!
