Anything you can buy from a takeaway you can make yourself.
You're effectively paying for someone to cook for you.

Learn to cook better or pony up the dough.

It's (sometimes) expensive and usually unhealthy. You don't necessarily know what ingredients they've put in.

On the other hand they're convenient and often tasty but this is usually because they add lots of salt and oil/fat when cooking.

Main pro for me is that there is no washing up.

Main con is the cost and also the fact that you can't really get a normal plain cooked meal like chops with mash and gravy. Chinese/Curry is alright once in a while but I mostly prefer plainer food.

All of this plus:

** You don't know what conditions the food was made in (rat infested kitchen?)
** By the time you wait for your takeaway to come you could have made a nutritious dinner
** You can actually save your cash making your own food (I buy my veg and meat from my local market and it's pretty cheap)

You need to look at what you have in the cupboards and think of meals you can make with it. Then go to the supermarket and complete the list of ingredients.

I ate nothing all day and just polished off a spectacular curry. I am so full and so satisfied.

You can't fully protect yourself against this but you can check out the FSA ratings of your local takeaways online and only order from establishments with a 4 or 5 food hygiene rating. Of course things can always go downhill between inspections but most the time if they're handling/storing food correctly and following proper kitchen management procedures and the building conditions are fine, they'll remain that way.
