While it’s hard to resist donuts, there are various reasons that they wreak havoc on the body. They are high in carbohydrates, fat and calories. If the donuts aren’t fresh, preservatives have been added to allow them to sit on a shelf for longer periods of time.

Donuts can cause dental problems as you can get cavities from the sweet icings and glazes. Excessive consumption of donuts will make you gain weight and you become easily exhausted. Your lack of energy will prevent you from working out so those calories will sit in the body.

Your mental health may also suffer as the chemicals in donuts can cloud your mind. Offering absolutely no nutrients, you’ll be full of empty calories.
Long term issues with donut eating can include diabetes due to being overweight and in poor health. Diabetes can cause finger and toe nails to crack. This condition can get much worse as diabetes can result in the onset of gangrene.
