He starts with the French fries and how it is made by flavor industries and that it puts a lot of potato farmers out of work because of the small number of buyers exerting power over a large number of sellers, a market he describes as “oligopsony”.

Fast food companies should stop targeting kids for their benefits, as kids health is compromised due to the fast food kids eats.

He juxtaposes the example of a drug user and their understanding of the risks associated with their consumption to a fast food consumer .

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.

Thus, substantiates that the two young girls in the attending lawsuit have a viable claim.
