Is junk food a boon or a curse?
It is both a boon as well as a curse, a boon as they have all mushroomed all over the city, so any time you have a guest you can orger these food, but it is not good for your health. ----------- Junk food is a consequence of an unregulated industry. Not that a food industry should be regulated, but that as in any open market, there are products and services that do not necessarily have the best interests of the public at heart.

Both. It means that you are always available and can be contacted by your loved ones, and you can contact them. there is no excuse for your teens not to call and tell you th…ey will be late etc. On the other hand they can also call you at all hours and ask for a lift home rather than get themselves organised before they go. It's all perspective. Its just a Curse... People are becoming more patient less and addicted to cell phone...These days people stated feeling missing a cell phone at home is missing a day without living a day...can you image a person to be without his cellphone for a week? There's an iPhone app to answer that question for you.
ANSWER I think it is definitely a boon. I have a patient who got a full dental treatment quote in the U.S. for about 27,000 USD. The equivalent treatment in Mexico was aro…und 15,000 USD plus of course travel costs which was around 2,000 USD (all inclusive with flight, all inclusive) so there was a savings of 10,000 USD. Saving 10,000 USD cannot be considered a curse! But of course it really depends on the case at hand.
Medical tourism (also called medical travel, health tourism or global health care) is a term initially coined by travel agencies and the mass media to describe the rapidly-gro…wing practice of traveling across international borders to obtain health care. Such services typically include elective procedures as well as complex specialized surgeries such as joint replacement (knee/hip), cardiac surgery, dental surgery, and cosmetic surgeries. However, virtually every type of health care, including psychiatry, alternative treatments, convalescent care and even burial services are available. As a practical matter, providers and customers commonly use informal channels of communication-connection-contract, and in such cases this tends to mean less regulatory or legal oversight to assure quality and less formal recourse to reimbursement or redress, if needed. Over 50 countries have identified medical tourism as a national industry.However, accreditation and other measures of quality vary widely across the globe, and there are risks and ethical issues that make this method of accessing medical care controversial. Also, some destinations may become hazardous or even dangerous for medical tourists to contemplate.
I think it's like many other things man has invented: fire, the wheel, aircraft, for example, they can all be used for good and bad, which means they have been and will contin…ue to be used so, as long as man exists..
Definitely a boon. Can't see how it would be a curse. With everything there is the potential for misuse, but anything that liberates people, brings people together, and helps …people become more free cannot be bad in the long run. Entire countries are becoming free because the internet opens people up to the world. A few bad apples here in there don't change that - and those bad apples were probably around long before the internet.
it's perfectly a curse as it does makes a student dependant upon the tuition class only and he doesn't study at home and thus scores less marks in exams.
A "boon" is a "benefit" or "bonanza"; in this context, a curse is the opposite.
Undoubtedly Ayurveda is a boon to the whole mankind.Where else you see a health system telling the ways of life?Almost all the health systems are either curative or palliative… by Nature whereas Ayurveda is Preventive ..You need to experience the healing touch of Ayurveda from a qualified doctor.Some quack doctors may be a curse, But telling the system as a curse is an unpardonable offence...
Tuition can be considered a boon or curse to many. However, withouttuition, schools would not be able to fully develop their educationcurriculum.
Industry (from Latin industrius , "diligent, industrious"), is the segment of economy concerned with production of goods and services. Industry began in its present form dur…ing the 1800s, aided by technological advances, and it has continued to develop to this day. Many developed countries (The U.K., The U.S. and Canada for example) and many developing/semi-developed countries (People's Republic of China, India etc.) depend significantly on industry. Industries, the countries they reside in, and the economies of those countries are interlinked in a complex web that may be hard to understand at first glance. MERITS -faster production of items -decrease of prices -decrease of use of man-power -made works of people easy -development in field of information technology and R&D(research and development) -offers jobs 2 well employed -Textile manufacture-In the early 18th century, British textile manufacture was based on wool which was processed by individual artisans, doing the spinning and weaving on their own premises. This system is called a cottage industry. Flax and cotton were also used for fine materials, but the processing was difficult because of the pre-processing needed, and thus goods in these materials made only a small proportion of the output. -Metallurgy-The major change in the metal industries during the era of the Industrial Revolution was the replacement of organic fuels based on wood with fossil fuel based on coal. -Mining- Coal mining in Britain, particularly in South Wales started early. Before the steam engine, pits were often shallow bell pits following a seam of coal along the surface which were abandoned as the coal was extracted. -Steam power-The development of the stationary steam engine was an essential early element of the Industrial Revolution; however, for most of the period of the Industrial Revolution, the majority of industries still relied on wind and water power as well as horse and man-power for driving small machines. TRANSPORTATION -Chemicals -Machine tools -Gas lighting -Agriculture DEMIRIT -world into rich and poor -creates economic disturbances among countries - Factories and urbanization -The factory system was largely responsible for the rise of the modern city, as large numbers of workers migrated into the cities in search of employment in the factories. Nowhere was this better illustrated than the mills and associated industries of Manchester, nicknamed "Cottonopolis", and arguably the world's first industrial city. For much of the 19th century, production was done in small mills, which were typically water-powered and built to serve local needs. Later each factory would have its own steam engine and a tall chimney to give an efficient draft through its boiler. Child labour -The Industrial Revolution led to a population increase, but the chance of surviving childhood didn't improve throughout the industrial revolution.  There was still limited opportunity for education, and children were expected to work. Employers could pay a child less than an adult even though their productivity was comparable; there was no need for strength to operate an industrial machine, and since the industrial system was completely new there were no experienced adult labourers. This made child labour the labour of choice for manufacturing in the early phases of the industrial revolution. Housing -Living conditions during the Industrial Revolution varied from the splendour of the homes of the owners to the squalor of the lives of the workers. Cliffe Castle, Keighley, is a good example of how the newly rich chose to live. This is a large home modelled loosely on a castle with towers and garden walls. The home is very large and was surrounded by a massive garden, the Cliffe Castle is now open to the public as a museum. Luddites- The rapid industrialisation of the English economy cost many craft workers their jobs. The textile industry in particular industrialised early, and many weavers found themselves suddenly unemployed since they could no longer compete with machines which only required relatively limited (and unskilled) labour to produce more cloth than a single weaver. Organization of labour The Industrial Revolution concentrated labour into mills, factories and mines, thus facilitating the organisation of combinations or trade unions to help advance the interests of working people. The power of a union could demand better terms by withdrawing all labour and causing a consequent cessation of production. Employers had to decide between giving in to the union demands at a cost to themselves or suffer the cost of the lost production. Skilled workers were hard to replace, and these were the first groups to successfully advance their conditions through this kind of bargaining. Other effects- The application of steam power to the industrial processes of printing supported a massive expansion of newspaper and popular book publishing, which reinforced rising literacy and demands for mass political participation.
Wool industry is a boon and a curse in a way.Its a curse because it affects the workers with diseases and also pollutes water.(ie.the extra wool is thrown in river bodies).It …is a boon as it provides warmth.An also once the wool giving animal's wool is sheared,new good and better wool grows back.
