In his article “Don't Blame the Eater” David Zinczenko has pointed out that all the fast food industries are the one responsible for making the children's in America fat and unhealthy. Zinczenko believes that the fast food centers aren't providing any kind of warnings about the effects and extra calories that a fast food can cause, instead they are eager to supply their so called “cheap and tasty fast food”. When he was young he had no choice except for eating at fast food centers as his mother was busy earning money to pay the bills because of which he ended up overweight. According to my view, I believe that it isn't the fast food industries who are to be blamed, it is the parents. Eventhough nowadays all the parents have to work long hours to earn their living but still they shouldn't forget their responsibility towards their children.
The large power of Buycotting forced McDonalds to introduce salads, as people stopped eating there because of how unhealthy the food on offer was. However, it could be said political turnout can only be measured by electoral turnout as this is the most usual method and also the one that can be measured the easiest, with us knowing with a high degree of accuracy that electoral turnout in the 2010 General Election was 65.1%. That political turnout can be measured other than by electoral turnout is shown by the falling levels of electoral turnout in UK General Election’s and the rising forms of indirect participation. The statement can also be proved by the quality of other forms of participation compared to voting in elections in the UK. Electoral turnout can’t just be used as a measure of political turnout due to the 18 plus age limit on voting in the UK, excluding younger voters.
The book Fast Food Nation would open the eyes of most Americans to behind the scene of fast food. The type of workers they employ, and how the government is connected to the industry. The workers of the fast-food industry are treated with bad ethics. The fast-food industry likes to hire young, poor, and handicap people. They hire teenagers because they live at home and do not have any expenses, therefore, they work for less money.
Burger King soon followed in the 50’s and has also received its fair share of lawsuits. Some believe that suing consistently is acceptable because they are using their freedom of using the court system but many believe that it is a frivolous waste of time. Because fast food has become increasingly available, many Americans use the opportunity to eat their food whenever they want it and at a low cost. Yet when the visits are far too often they look for someone else to blame for their mistakes. Take Gregory Rhymes for example.
The accessibility of fast food in schools encourages students to eat unhealthy, which is detrimental to their health. For example, students are always buying foods such as fries and burgers; they are not realizing how bad this food is to their health and body. When students are severely overweight or obese, they may get diseases in the future such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cardio-vascular disease. Fast food is one of the factors leading to these dreadful diseases. A fast food meal may contain 900-1600 calories, which is almost half of the calories most people need each day.
They all end up in the same ruling that its the consumers choice to enter a fast food establishment and consume their products. But it is evident that fast food corporations have caused a widespread epidemic within the U.S from their many caused negative effects. This is why society blames and accuses these fast food companies for being responsible for the ongoing obesity crisis, but even though their food is not considered of good nutrition, in the end it’s not fast food companies forcing their customers to consume their products, its free will of society. The modern history of fast food in America began on July 7, 1912 with the opening of a fast food restaurant called the Automat in New York. The Automat was a cafeteria with its prepared foods behind small glass windows and coin-operated slots.
Supersize Me is a great movie that showed people how fast food affects our health and lives. Americans are growing fatter with each passing day. Morgan Spurlock of New York City decided to tackle one aspect of this problem with his idea of studying the McDonald’s way by limiting his intake of food for one month to only McDonald’s and filming this adventure. The purpose of this movie was to prevent people from eating fast-food by showing how fast fast-food can change your lifestyle, not in a good way. The result of the movie finds that the McDonalds way is a super highway to fat city.
Burger King VS McDonald’s Burger King and McDonald’s are both fast food restaurants that provide customers with an easy drive thru window. When families have very little time to prepare a cooked meal at home, they most often opt for a fast food drive thru. Hitting up the drive thru at Burger King or McDonald’s, makes life just a little easier for the family on the run. People choose these types of places mostly for their fast pace, not for the quality of the food they receive. Also, because places such as Burger King and McDonald’s cost less than a fancy dining place, they feel they are getting a big bang for their buck.
According to internet research, Americans spend more than $110 billion a year on the fast food. So obviously the only good thing I think that comes out of fast food restaurants is that since it is a growing epidemic, results would be more people employed. On the other hand, more and more fast food places would be everywhere, making it easier for people to succumb to the temptation of the delicious fast food. The truth of the matter is, fast food is killing us slowly. Do yourself and fellow Americans a favor and don’t eat at such lousy food places.
Fast food restaurants make their appearance on nearly every street corner in every town. “Fast Food Nation” pointed out all of the flaws in these miserable grease pits, but there are some very small advantages of fast food restaurants besides the convenience and low prices. The nation has about 2.5 million people employed in the fast food industry, this total is mostly made up of teenagers, the elderly, the uneducated, or the handicapped. Although working at a fast food restaurant may not be the most flattering job, it can help pay the bills or give teens some extra spending cash or maybe even money to pay for college. The fast-food industry has created millions and millions of jobs for these usually unappealing workers.
