In many countries, traditional foods are being replaced by international fast foods. This is having a negative effect on both families and societies. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Nowadays, fast
food
from other countries is taking precedence over the traditional
food
we used to have. Some argue that
this
is having a bad effect on families as well as society as a whole. I do not agree with
such
an argument as there are both negatives and positives associated with these changes in
food
habits. With the tremendous increase in globalization over the years, the
food
that we eat is not limited to traditional
dishes
as we have more and more variety of global
dishes

franchise that has opened in recent years.
For example
, Mcdonalds, the American burger restaurant chain is now spread across the
world
and have their stores in almost every area of the
world
.
Moreover
, these days youngsters prefer international fast
food
over staple
dishes
of their region.
For instance
, Indian youngsters prefer an American burger or an Italian pizza over the staple diet of rice or wheat. There are some positives associated with
this
such
as, choice of the variety of
dishes
has increased,
in addition
, as these
dishes
are available across the
world
, a person travelling to some other country won't face difficulties in finding a familiar meal in any part of the
world
.
For instance
, the local
food
for India and Germany is very different and yet due to the availability of fast
food
joints, it is possible to have a filling meal even in remote areas.
However
,
this
shift in
food
habits is causing the decline and extinction of many cultural or traditional
dishes
.
Moreover
, some junk

is unhealthy and is causing health problems like obesity across the
world
.
For instance
, India is famous for spices and various types of herbs but is seeing a decline in consumption due to the advent of global
food
choices. In conclusion,
although

over traditional meals, yet, positives

‘Complex’ sentences are not actually very complex; they are just two or more simple sentences put together. Putting them together makes the essay more coherent and cohesive.
