He provides many facts and statistics that prove the negative impact fats food has had on society, health, and the economy. He covers many aspects of fast food and is able to give the reader information to make better decisions in their lifestyles: do not eat at fast food restaurants. The author makes a call to purchase locally and to take down fast food culture. Ultimately the book leaves you with a feeling of hopelessness. After I read the book I felt like society was doomed or that we couldn’t do anything to make a change.
Zinczenko’s first point is polluted with fallacies and wrong information, and his second point is no different. He states that people don’t always read the fine print during a part of his argument, and that right there actually defeats the purpose of making the argument in the first place. He said that the people don’t pay attention; even if the restaurant supplies them with nutritional information, they don’t always feel compelled to read it thoroughly. Therefore, it’s not the company’s fault for making them unhealthy: it’s their own. Additionally, most people that desire to eat healthy will take the time to read even the fine print and follow or at least acknowledge it when dining.
Fast food companies should stop targeting kids for their benefits, as kids health is compromised due to the fast food kids eats. People have to be aware of the effects of fast food and people should stop eating fast food to stop the risk of bad health problems. People should eat homemade food to make sure they are not providing bad food to their bodies. People need to know the difference between good and bad food, and the effects of good and bad food which will help them pick healthy food. Schlosser demonstrates fast food as being the food that has negative impacts on people’s lives, and helps give knowledge to people to understand the health related problems due to fast food to help make healthy decision while pick food to provide healthy
“Fast food restaurants have us hooked on to their tasty food. You See a lot of people buying fast food because how good it tastes. Well let me tell you it is not good for your health. Why do fast food places lower their prices because they know people will buy it if it doesn’t cost that much and most people buy it cause that`s how much they can afford”. Fast food places is a way to not cook every week I feel bad for people when I go to McDonald’s and ask them, do you know what you’re eating in they say yes so I ask them, is that burger real such as real beef’ they say yes so I have to explain to them that you’re not eating real beef you’re eating a burger that has a lot of chemicals in it.
A world without fast food such as Mcdonald's, Wendy’s, Jack in the box etc would have a healthier environment. It is known that fast food is incredibly dangerous and can cause health problems, in spite of how unhealthy the food is people still tend to consume it. The film Supersize Me is a documentary in which it emphasizes the message of the risks eating fast food has, in this case it’d be Mcdonalds, it expresses the harm that could be done physically and mentally to a person. Every fast food company spends millions of dollars advertising their product, and though they know the product isn’t exactly the healthiest snack they fool people into thinking otherwise. Morgan Spurlock attempts to demonstrate the importance of eating healthy and limiting the amount of junk food consumed, he makes his claim plausible by using several different ways to attract the audience’s attention.
We live in a society where most parents do not have the luxury to stay home and prepare healthy meals. Can we really blame people for their size? Or, are we a product of the society we live in? Knowing just how unhealthy, and harmful the food is at fast food restaurants, we cannot bring ourselves to stop consuming food equivalent to a heart attack served on a bun. Quite frankly, fast food is convenient and affordable.
This shows that although burgers may taste really good, they cause more harm than good. Also homemade food is a lot better than greasy fast food, and it can also teach students how to make healthier choices. Cooking food at home is a lot better for your health than fast food is (Comparing Fast Food Nutrition). This means that making food at home is going to end up being a lot better people's health than fast food. Fast food is unhealthy and almost everyone knows that but still people continue to eat it.
My claim is that fast food affects society in a positive way because the industry provides jobs for uneducated people and provides cheap, consistent, and easy to access food for people. Some people might argue that the fast food itself is unhealthy and it is a leading cause of obesity in the USA. According to a wikipedia study about the rate of fast food restaurants to the percent of obese adults in each state California has more than 10,000 fast food
Junk food or as commonly known around the world as "Fast Food" has been a major change to the way people from all around the world consume food, it is known to be delicious and satisfying and at the same time it 's inexpensive and you are able to spot it everywhere, most restaurants offer a free delivery service to your doorsteps too, unfortunately, fast food can have an adverse effect on the health of people, including many diseases such as heart problems, soaring obesity and cancer, in order to make people quit the habit of addicting on fast food, governments are thinking of implementing or have already implemented taxes for fast food meals as a way to combat the increasing obesity in North America and other world countries and see how
But, added to everything one may be ignorant to about the food industry, it means a lot. And it’s simply not fair that companies are able to do that and get away with it. The film presents you four teens facing obesity, each with a different story, condition and background. Their families are all supportive, as expected, and they all want to help their kids. However, it can be heartbreaking to see these kids talking about the problems they face, most of them being related to having to loose weight.
They are both to blame. The parents keep blaming the companies and the companies keep blaming the parents. They should both just take responsability that they both are to blame for the obesity of the children. Parents are sometimes too busy to be able to make their children a homemade meal. There are so many fast food restaurants in every town or city, they’re everywhere and the food is prepared and quick so the kids want that because it taste good and the parents buy it because they have no time to make them a meal at home.
The main contributor, widely reported by top experts, is the consumption of cheap, and convenient foods such as fast food and the myriad of boxed foods available in the supermarket. Diane Brady asserts in her essay, “The Employer-Friendly Case for Pricer Big Macs” that “Of all the reasons why a third of U.S. adults are obese, the lure of cheap, unhealthy food ranks near the top” (519). With continual attention being given to the effects of unhealthy foods on adults and especially young people, one would think that America would wise up and stop consuming it at such an alarming rate. Again, Brady points out that, “Fast food chains have raised their game with healthier menu offerings and support for programs that encourage physical activity, but they continue to thrive by selling high-calorie food. McDonald’s salads, introduced in 1987, make up just 2 percent to 3 percent of U.S. sales” (520).
That action leads to a clear and present danger in our communities. Now don’t get me a wrong, a good juicy cheeseburger is good every once in a while. Through the opening of these fast food restaurants, kids, adults, and students alike will be more tempted than ever to spend the money on a quick and easy meal. I can’t count the number of times my parents have gotten take out simply because they didn’t want to cook. Secondly, the prices of fresh food are at an all-time high.
In the end, David Zinczenko should have mentioned my points in his writing. He should have addressed some of my reasons in his writings because fast food restaurants are spending millions of dollars on advertisements, he should have mentioned some benefits of eating healthy, lack of parent’s involvements, and fast service is being provided by the restaurants. If we add these all up, then it’s all our fault that we are eating junk food on daily bases because at the end you have to make decisions for this kind of situations. You could be healthier if you will make a right decision then you will live a healthy life because junk food is high in sugar, sodium and many other things that is harmful for your health. It’s all your choice to make right
Obesity happens because many people tend to consume fast food because it is the easiest option than taking time to make a nutritional meal. Schlosser mentions why people do not care much for healthy options, “Consumers savor the flavor while operators embrace [the] profit margin”(241). That is pretty much saying that the even if they do have a healthier option, it does not necessary mean that it is healthy at all. Another article from natural news mentions what obesity because of processed foods does to the body. The article says that although many people do not eat at any fast food restaurant they can still find processed foods in grocery markets, that
