    Do the dangers derived from the use of chemicals in food production and preservation outweigh the advantages?

    Nowadays, people are remarkably using the chemicals in producing and storing the food more than ever before, arousing a question that whether such chemical usage brings about more adverse impacts on our health than its positive effects
    To start with, using chemicals and preservatives in food products has a certain benefits. Firstly, preservatives in food and drinks keep them from not being perishable because it takes quite a long time from food production, transportation to delivery to the customers. Without chemicals to store them, they will easily go stale and manufacturers become bankrupt. Secondly, some additives in food such as artificial sugar or colors makes products more inviting to customers, that enhances them to purchase more products to foster the national economy. Lastly, some chemicals in food add more flavors to food which then become more delicious that helps to tailor most customers’ different tastes.
    Nevertheless, such chemicals usage in food can bring about some serious consequences. The first to mention is that the prolonged usage of industrial food makes people have higher possibilities of getting cancer especially digestion and stomach ones. Besides, the surplus amount of sugar and additives in food can destroy people’s tooth enamel and causes tooth decay or even cause some diseases such as obesities or diabetes. Moreover, the artificial color and flavor in food and beverages can change the diet style of the youth, especially the teenagers and children who choose junk food instead of fresh food, resulting in a unhealthy diet affect both physical and mental development of the youth.
    In conclusion, although there are some advantages of using chemicals in food production and storage, the adverse impacts it brings about to our health is more seriously than its advantages.
