However, people’s action to sue fast food companies seems hardly sensible, because their foods are not poisoned, spoilt, or molded. Although their foods are far from healthy and their advertising tactics are extremely cunning, fast food restaurants are not the only one to blame for today’s rocketing rates of obesity-related health problems. It is entirely a person’s decision whether or not he or she chooses to eat fast foods. It is largely known that fast foods are junks for the body, yet people still buy them wanting a quick fix for their rumbling stomach. People can always avoid fast foods and make healthier options if they want to, and suing the fast food restaurants will not make them lose any weight or fat they have in their body.
However, in recent years, the fast food industry has become the subject and source of the rise in the rate of obesity throughout countries. Journalist and author Eric Schlosser explained in his book, ‘Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal’, that today, fast food has created an impact on society that has fueled an epidemic of obesity, and transformed food production throughout the world. Large fast food corporations, such as McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, have become so prominent in people’s daily lives that they have grown so powerful by exploiting their young consumers that they can influence government nutrition policies, as described by Professor Marion Nestle in her book ‘Food Politics’.

Though they may fill your tummy, what else do they do for you? Sadly, they don’t do much else but make you fatter. They contain little to no essential vitamins to keep you alive, the few fake freeze dried vegetables are simply a gimmick, and they are high in fats. People are drawn to these meals because they are easy to make after a long day working all day. According to The NY Times, “After a long day of work at one or even two jobs, 20 extra minutes — plus cooking time — must seem like an eternity.” This all leads back to the main issue of time.

McDonald 's was the first business to come up with “super sizing”, this was when they could no longer cut down there already cheap food prices so they increased the portions in hopes of attracting more customers. The way this works is because the actual cost to make fast-food was cheap and in order to super-size their food portions it would only cost them a few cents more. So in all reality the fast food companies were gaining way more money from their fine new invention then what they were actually spending to make the food. The To put this into perspective Brownlees article shows “ For every dollar a quick-service franchise spends to produce a food item, only 20 cents, on average, goes toward food.” I mean who wouldn 't think that 's a good idea more for less, but just like Shannon explains “...and the customer thinks he 's getting a good deal. And he would be, if he actually needed the extra calories.”, and this is completely correct.
