It was said that “Health is the key to all happiness”. But now, the ratio of public health is decreasing day-by-day. Some people believe that an increased number of sports facility will help to improve public health, on the other hand, others think that it wouldn’t have a significant effect on public health and some other measures are required.
Increasing sports facilities like outdoor sports will help everyone to improve their health. Finding an open space or a playground has become rare in a city because of population growth, and industrialization. As a result, peoples don’t have any chance to play any kind of outdoor games. Having a playground in the neighbourhood will be very beneficial in case of increasing public health.
On the other hand, only increasing the sports facilities will not going to help if we don’t control our diet. Health experts believe that “good health of individuals depends about 75 per cent on a healthy diet and the rest 25 on exercises”. But, in today’s world, the fast-food consumption rate is relatively getting higher day-day-day. As a result, increased sports facilities are not effecting significantly on public health. Also, there are many people who love to play mobile and computer games rather than outdoor games.
To conclude, I believe only increasing the sports facilities will not going to help if the peoples are not concerned about their health. So we should make people conscious about their health, encourage them to have a healthy diet and limit the time of playing video games.
