There are two sides to the coin, as far as modern day lifestyles are concerned. On the one hand, technology has subverted us to a great extent, so much so that for many of us, our lifestyle has become sedentary. A sedentary lifestyle, coupled with a rich food habit, has made us all prone to disease and illness. The number of people succumbing to cardiac ailments has risen greatly. In America, obesity has reached epidemic proportions, and brings along with it attendant health issues like diabetes. So, in a way, the modern day lifestyle has left us more prone to disease.

However, today we are also more aware of the ailments around us, and also about what needs to be done to mitigate these ailments or ensure we do not get them. People are more aware of their bodies and the different things that could go wrong with it. Besides, fitness is the new mantra among the younger generation today, ensuring that they are on the road to a healthy future. So to sum it up, the modern day lifestyle may be a cause of worry as far as disease is concerned, but we are also now equipped with the know-how and awareness required to avoid these illnesses.

Yes,modern lifestyle has made the people weak and unhealthy.. Now a days modern living for so many people means adopting western culture, smoking, drinking etc..This has been affecting teenagers all over the world to a very large extent moreover it has led to lots of diseases like cancer, nervous breakdown etc.. Todays life is full of stress,tension,worries etc.. So to escape from all these most of the people find alcohols as a reducing agent to worries.. According to me alcoholism is an escapism.. But this escapism leads nowhere other than to death.. Now a days most of the people have obesic because of wrong food habits and consumption of junk food daily.Now a days eating home made food is considered as something bad.. Which is considered below dignity by many.. Most of the people wants to be recognised as a modern being. So the ways they find to become modern is pretty much dangerous like now eating pizzas is considered much more than eating home made fried rice and it has become unavidable for many of the teenagers to be at night clubs rather than staying at home.. Such people will suffer much more than others from nervous breakdowns and will create unwanted stresses among children..which will lead to lack of excellence in studies. About people working in IT institutions,the case is same.. They will be sitting in front of computers for long hours hence wont be able to take food in at regular times and they might also be made to work over night which can lead to lack of sleep.. And eye sight problems etc.. Lack of sleep will gradually make the person hyperactive and that person will often be seen tired...

Yes you are right. Modern living affects us to a large degree.
Pollution, smoke and toxic of factories, unhealthy food like fast food, technologies, laser. even the seas are becoming baskets for garbage and so the fish would be unhealthy. The same is true for other animals whose food is not natural
Every thing natural has faded away to be replaced by artificiality!!!!!

Modern Lifestle has made people disease prone . One clear evidence of this is the increasingly growing rate of cardiac problems in cities. People in villages are a lot more immune . Even children have turned into couch potatoes sitting in front of the T.V or the computer. The true physical exercise has all been deplitted.

What about vaccines? A disease which could killed hundreds is now unheard of.!
But in the end , you have to choose between a stronger though less knowledgeable generation, and a generation plagued with sickness but with increased capacity to deal with it, though superficially.

I strongly oppose that Modern living has made the people of india weak,unhealthy and disease prone. I feel very strongly that modern living has made India strong. Year by Year our life expectancy is growing as mentioned in the graph. Economic development is growing by years, there is constant growth of population. Literacy rate is growing year by year.
I support the motion that India is not becoming weak and unhealthy. Nowadays people are having the knowledge how to protect themselves; they know the precautions to be taken when, after, before a disease occurs. The modern day has better doctors who can help change the society, they know the perfect way to treat people when they are suffering. The modern day has fast communications, and vast technologies to change the way of living. The present day food items might be unhealthy, but not all of them, some food items are so healthy that they give us much calcium and much more energy.
I wholeheartedly support that the modern day living has made us think to find a better way survival, it is that we can nearly predict future with science and technology. With the help of science and technology we find the precautions to be taken. The modern day living has been fit for better survival. The present day uses mineral water which is quite healthy. The present day uses AC for constant cool temperature. The modern day knows the things which are are harmful and unhealthy. We get everything we need. Better computer facilities, educational facilities etc
I submit that there is nothing better than modern living
If you stongly want to know the advantages plz try asking the question advantages and disadvantages of science and technology, if you get the article then your problem is finished.
