The Principal,
Lamurde Excellent Academic
Secondary School, Jalingo.

Complain For the Poor Quality and Quantity of Food served to Us in Hostel.
Let me begin by thanking you for your past contributions to our school development and socialising our school environment to make it conducive place to study. Sir on behalf of the students staying in the Hostel; I will like to lodge a complain over a poor quantity and quality of food served to us in the hostel. These food are very crappy/cheesy for health.

Research show that: eaten these food can cause the below Problem:
1. Diabetes: One of major contributing factors for the emerging diabetes epidemic is unhealthy diet full of junk and Bad Quality food. When you eat a healthy diet, your body gets a steady supply of glucose, which helps maintain insulin sensitivity. On the other hand, when you eat only junk food, the excessive stress exerted on your metabolism affects the ability of your body to use insulin properly. Since junk food lacks fibre content, its consumption directly results in a spike in sugar levels, these one of the main reasons for insulin resistance and development of diabetes.
2. Fatigue and Weakness: eating food that lack good quality such as junk food items for all your meals of the day over a period of time, you could be suffer from chronic fatigue. Junk food can lower your energy levels to an extent that it may become difficult for you to even perform your daily tasks that’s study.
3. Affects the brain Function: A study shows that; eating such food for some period of time (week precisely) one week is enough to trigger memory impairment. in rats. (trans fats) from these food tends to replace healthy fats in the brain and interferes with its normal signalling mechanism.
4. Kidney Disease: The reason why you can never say no to fries and chips is because they contain high amount of finely processed salt which increases salivation and secretion of enzymes that enhance your cravings for these foods. High amount of bad fats and sodium from salt disrupts the sodium-potassium balance of the body and causes hypertension. Since the kidney have to filter all the toxins from the blood, eating a lot of junk food has a direct effect on the kidney functioning. Etc

With the above problematic of these food, I would like to appeal to your sense of fairness and hope prompt action will be taken regarding these matters and come to our aids. Thanks

Yours faithfully,
