Andrew F. Smith's book, 'Encyclopedia of Junk Food and Fast Food' suggests, that junk food is commercial products, such as candy, bakery goods, ice cream, salty snacks, and soft drinks. These products have little or no nutritional value but do have plenty of calories, salt, and fats. (A Smith, 2000).

In this day and age people are cautious of what foods they eat due to a massive increase in the side effects caused by ‘unhealthy foods’. An article on www.livestrong.com written by Janet Renee, a nutrition specialist and dietitian, lists some causes of eating unhealthy foods. Included in this list are cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, cancer and osteoporosis. Of course the main effect of eating unhealthy foods is weight gain, which can then lead to obesity. (J Renee, 2015)

So why do we crave unhealthy food? Experts believe that cravings occur for a lot of reasons. In particular they include evolution, psychological factors including unhappiness, stress, and also just a genuine need for certain foods. (A Smellie, 2011)
In the United States of the 500 000 or more deaths due to cancer each year, one-third of the deaths hold responsible for diet and physical activity levels. (Kushi et al., 2006, p. 254)

According to over 200 studies “Perhaps the most promising lead to the prevention of cancer is derived from the epidemiologic observations that vegetables and fruit are consistently associated with lower risk of cancers of most epithelia” (Potter, 1997, p. 7).

Alongside cancer, 20% of all Australian diseases and injuries are a consequence of poor nutrition and neglectful care of self-preservation. Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, arthritis are a cause in conjunction with being overweight and poor nutrition. (Cancer Council Australia, 2015)

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by eating right and remaining physically active can fundamentally reduce the risk of cancer particularly that of the breast, colon and prostate cancers. (Sugimura, 2002, p. 17)

It is recommend that to obtain and maintain a balanced diet, consume from these five food groups on a daily basis with plenty of water and limiting your intake of sugary foods and fats. (Australian Government. National Health and Medical Research Council. Department of Health and Ageing, n.d.)

With the acceptance of the gap in our knowledge, evidence has declared that fruits and vegetables have a protective affect against various forms of cancer. (Temple & Kaiser, 2003, p. 467)
Australian guide to healthy eating (Australian Government. National Health and Medical Research Council. Department of Health and Ageing. n.d.)
Food is many things, but most of all food is survival. Our primal stages required it but our connection is intricate and continuously changing.
In a developed world, food is sought after as a recreation and a kitchen the recreational destination. To aid in defending against toxins and to discover nutritious substances we have our taste.
Unfortunately, some fats and our craving for sweet food have been known to lead us to a path of personal annihilation. (Grayson, 2010, p. 1)
This presentation we hope to point out some factors of certain food categories that can aid the readers in further improving their individual health and if they so choose that of the ones they love.

The credibility of the sites and resources found for the previous information is usually found to be common information when comparing websites ( Meola as cited in Metzger, 2007). As Meola quotes (Metzger, 2007): “Comparing web sites to each other and to reviewed sources provides an understanding of the depth of information available, reveals the controversial areas of a topic that need special attention, and gives . . . a feel for the different kinds of information available across formats”. We used corroboration which is a technique that requires looking for various sources of information on a subject.
While we did use the checklist approach (Metzger, 2007), we do acknowledge that any information that is acquired has a chance of being incorrect, despite checking for accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency and coverage.

Healthy food, fitness food, food of different cultures, we all benefit from it. As described, food can aid in the prevention of cancer, help keep us healthy and aid in recovery after exercise and give pleasurable experiences in our mouth's. Although, due to our weakness for sweets and fat, we can be quite the opposite and head down the path of poor health and malnutrition. Keeping a balance with healthy eating and physical exercise is a great way to prolong your life.
