Assessment of effect of low calorie intake on cycle rickshaw pullers in Agra cant railway station
Energy required for internal functions, repairs, builds and maintains cells and body tissues, and supports the external activities that enable to interact with the physical world. External functions supported by energy include exercise, work and play. This study has been done for the assessment of energy consumption and expenditure of the cycle rickshaw pullers. The rate of impact of lower energy intake on the body has been assessed. Comparative study has been carried out in 3 groups of 60 cycles of rickshaw pullers of Agra cant railway for this study. It was found in this study that due to lack of necessary caloric intake of cycle rickshaw pullers, their sickening rate increased and the ability to work decreased. Rickshaw pullers have to leave this business because of less functionality. In a state like Uttar Pradesh, where there is a shortage of employment, in this case, due to low physical capacity of rickshaw pullers, leaving this business is a matter of concern. Along with the energy required, other factors also influence the physical condition, so there is a need for integrated study.
