Many of us wonder why our life span is shorter than that of our ancestors. Many studies have proven that the factors or causes of shorter lifenspan are the types of food that we eat as well as our kind of lifestyle. Processed foods are much more dangerous to our health due to the chemical and preservative contents they may have. However, people nowadays prefer to eat processed food because it is much easier to prepare and only consumes a little of their time. In addition, some of us forget to engage in physical activities after an exhausting day. We prefer sitting or lying down while engaging in any activity like watching television, playing video and mobile games, posting and surfing on social media like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok and the like during our free time. According to Jon Johnson, too much time spent in technology brought negative effects to our body. It may lead to psychological
and physiological issues such as eyestrain and difficulty on focusing on important tasks. It may also contribute to more serious health conditions, such as depression. As a result, these impose dangers and risks to our health.
