I have always believed that humans are a part of nature and that they have survived on this earth by staying on top of the food chain. But as times changed, the lifestyle changed and humans began to live an easy sedentary life and started gorging on processed foods. As a result we have become physically weak and vulnerable than of most of the animals in the animal kingdom.  We can even say that we have become so weak that we cannot survive without processed foods. The food on which the man survived during olden days has now become coarse and hard for direct consumption. As a result most of the natural foods such as milk, vegetables, meat, etc. as raw foods can cause health problems such as diarrhoea, constipation, infection, etc. But natural foods as well as healthy lifestyle are very essential for maintaining healthy body. Due to the absence of these two we have abundance of diseases like diabetes, eye problems, skin infections, weak bones and immune system, etc.
