Though utterly delicious, the foods they serve are totally unhealthy junk foods that are high in sugar, trans and saturated fat, simple carbohydrates, sodium, and a lot of hazardous chemicals which naturally make them enemies for our body. Fast food restaurants being everywhere makes it a number one choice for most people to get an easy and cheap meal, especially for those who live or work near the restaurants, without really caring about what kind of junk they are eating. Fast food companies also have unethical marketing techniques that target children, using promotional cartoon or movie-related toys to make children even more attracted to buy their products. Moreover, fast food restaurants selectively give nutritional information to their innocent customers, hiding the shocking facts that will make the customers recoil from buying their foods and refuse to come back ever again. Despite all of these, suing fast food companies doesn't feel quite right.
Attention: About 43 billion pounds of food is thrown out of grocery stores each year. While some stores are addressing and implementing initiatives to address their food waste, most stores are not on board due to the fear of our litigious population. Need: Over 48 million men, women, and children go hungry in the U.S. USA Today reports that 1 in 7 rely on food banks. That’s about 46 million people including military families that utilize food banks to make ends meet.
Nobody can stop them so they do it. Public health researchers from Johns Hopkins University surveyed Americans about their feelings on food waste, they found that “Americans are pretty picky about what gets to stay in their refrigerators.” Therefore, food waste will be a significant issue that should be resolved because it is very ridiculous on the measures of food that goes to waste. Simply picture this, you go out to eat at an eatery. You order a personal pizza that comes with six big slices and you only finished three out of the six slices which leaves you with three leftover slices.
The problem here is that the food industry has no fault. Yes they produce the fast food, but the consumer has all the faults. They do spend millions on advertising their products, which makes us want to buy it. One because it's cheap and second because it's
I opted for the cheaper Bronze Affordable Act which still felt expensive, I would have preferred a better cover but I could not afford it. I also applied for food stamps as they would reduce the amount of money I spent on grocery. Such a program has improved the quality of life for the poor and has ensured that millions of families experiencing food security have food on the table (Burger, 2017, p. 65). In the game, I experienced frustration and endless battle of whether to do the right thing or just survive, every choice I made was highly influenced by money despite the consequences. For example, I broke a vase a vase at work and hid the evidence because I could not afford to pay it.
In the article “How to Make Oatmeal…Wrong,” New York Times writer, Mark Bittman contradicts McDonalds, so called, “healthy” wholesome oatmeal. Bittman claims that McDonald’s, the leading multinational fast-food giant, makes on average $16.5 billion per year. All of which is done by the deceptive and mind twisting marketing. The fast-food giant targets unsuspecting kids, teens, and average citizens that are looking for more for their buck. So, it isn’t that surprising that McDonald 's is famed and favored for having cheap food.
Because they are useless. Three reasons why they are useless is because, it's more convenient to use paper money, now and days there is nothing you can buy with a few pennies, and last they cost more than they are worth. To start off, if you were put in the situation where you bought a few items from the grocery store and your total came out to be $11.16 cents. Would it be easier to hand the cashier a ten dollar bill and a one dollar bill.
The complementary relationship between low-wage immigrants and high-wage natives seems to hold even as the encounter between them becomes more distant and abstract. Middle class Americans are capable of buying a fast food meal and picking up a veggie tray at a grocery store or even having presents prewrapped before they are sent to their door all because of immigrants. Low income immigrants make the lives of higher income natives easier and more efficient. The promise is, however, that even if one cannot afford to use day care services, even if one does their own landscaping, even if one cannot afford to buy fast food meals or veggie trays, even if one shops at a dollar store rather than using the services of Amazon, one will still be better
For instance, when I go to the grocery store to buy food I always see discounts and deals for processed and pre-prepared food. And often these discounted “foods” are loaded with sugar (high fructose corn syrup, dextrose, and maltodextrin); I rarely see deals for healthy foods such as vegetables and fruit. A receipt from
Mark Bittman a columnist for the New York Times and author of “Bad Food? Tax It, and Subsidize Vegetables” “July 23, 2011”, argues that people should open their eyes and fight to decrease obesity by going against the processed foods industries that make the bad foods. Bittman supports this thesis by saying how the food industry is incapable of marketing healthier foods, that instead of subsidizing production of unhealthy foods they should be taxed and make healthy food more affordable and available, then he goes on by saying how much money can be saved by taxing per ounce of sugar in sweetened beverages by one penny lastly Bittman claims how our society is profiting off of foods that make us sick and obese and how America could make a program
Food Inc., a documentary directed by Robert Kenner, shows you the real truth behind what Americans assume is healthy about their food. It comes to show how the food industry can be very inhumane. They treat the farmers awful, fill the animals with chemicals that makes them grow twice their size, and the workers work in poor conditions. Capitalism can be seen throughout this documentary taken to the extreme. Along with capitalism, abuse is also one of the key aspects shown throughout the film.
