You might feel that bringing your own bags to the store is the best thing for you to do, but a new study has found that it might not always be what is healthiest. The reusable bags that you bring along with you to the store might be better on the environment than using plastic or paper bags that the store provides, but the study has found that using those kinds of bags make people more likely to buy junk food.
So, if you are looking to protect the environment and lose weight, then you might want to take some time to consider what you are doing before you go to the store. Dr Jennifer Walden wonders: Is it worth the risk of buying more junk food by bringing your own bags along? Or, would you rather worry about your health than the environment?
Bringing your own bags doesn’t necessarily mean that you will buy too much junk food, but is it a risk that you are willing to take? That will be up to you to decide for yourself the next time that you are going out shopping.
