Task：In many countries,people can eat a wide variety of food today.As a result,they eat food from other regions than local food.Do you think the advantages of the development outweigh disadvantages?
Our diet is becoming more diversified than before, with a wider range of food transported from other regions.Many people prefer this kind of food to locally produced food and as a result, the consumption of local food declines, while the food produced in other regions is gaining popularity.
This trend can increase the varieties food and gives people more choices in their daily diet. For instance people in China can buy some bread and biscuits that are imported from foreign countries. Those who live in cold areas can try some fruits that are grown in tropical area. Also,this would encourage the trade between different regions,as any country or region can focus on the production of the local food and exchange it with others. As a result, the productivity increases significantly and people can buy high quality food at low prices.
However,this trend also has some negative effects, both on individuals and on the society. Food produced locally is believed to be fresher than that transported a long distance from other regions.To increase the shelf life, preservatives are commonly used in food processing, Which poses a risk to people's health ， as these additives may contain some harmful substances. In additlon the local food reflects a region's customs and cultures. If people prefer to eat the food produced in other regions, some local special food may diminish, which would be a loss of local food culture.
Overall, we can expect more food in other regions to appear on our dining table. This can enrich our lives, but meanwhile there are some problems that should not be ignored.
