Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  2. The food is very important for our health. Little by little the people worry more and more about health and they begin to look at the food tags because they want to know what the food they eat have. The ignorance is disappearing.

    Fast food is very popular in the world because this food has good taste and it has a low prize. Poor families haven´t got enough money for buy fruit and vegetables, but they have money to buy industrial food and fast food because it´s cheaper.

    This kind of food hasn´t got enough nutrients (essential fatty acids, vitamins, proteins,…); if we haven´t these nutrients on our bodies affect our health in a negative mood, our mental health and physical health. Also, the industries of food use ingredients that are bad for the health because these ingredients are cheaper than other healthier ingredients ; for example: palm oil, coconut oil, E-120,….

    In Ogimi(Japanese village) is one of the villages where the inhabitants are the oldest in the world. They eat food they grow themselves. They have a healthy diet without trans fat because they eat neither fast food nor industrial food. These people should be a example to follow.

  5. The food is very important in our life but is very hard search food healthy if you go a our supermarket more near, only you´ll find food with saturated fats and many preservatives, nothing is natural. This is also because supermarkets do not earn the same money from packaged products as healthy products

    Other problem for eat food healthy is his price, when a food is natural the price is very high, and for this the people prefers didnt eat healthy for save money. If supermarkets put healthy food cheaper than artificial food a lot more people would eat healthy

    The fast food is other problem in actuality, because a lot of people like this food, when this food be nothing healthy, but components of this food are addictive, and the flavor is good for this reason the people like the fast food.

    In my opinion the people should eat food healthy, because your body when you eat this food you feel healthier, but if you only eat fast food your body will become fat and you will not have any strength
