Essay

 I think it has both advantages and disadvantages and whether it is good or bad all depends on people’s point of view.
 When it comes to advantages, there are a lot of convenient foods available such as instant foods. It is a real benefit especially to busy people. Moreover there are many easily preserved foods. This is a real benefit too especially in emergency situation.
 As for disadvantages, our eating habits and life style become more Europeanized or Americanized. As a result, the number of people who suffer from obesity increases. As obesity increases cancer risk and tumor development, this is a real bad aspect.
 As to whether it is good or bad, as I said, it all depends on people. As for people who don’t want to spend time on eating and cannot see the advantages of longevity, it is good. When it comes to people who want to enjoy a long healthy life and like to eat, it is bad. Furthermore, the fact that Japan’s eating habits is changing is looked at only generally, there are many people who keep Japanese conventional eating habits and as for them, it is neither good nor bad.
 As I mentioned above, I think it has both advantages and disadvantages and whether it is good or bad all depends on people’s point of view.
