False advertising is also another unpleasant practice that fast food companies use to lure in costumers. Some of these practices include no warning labels on advertisements like there are on dangerous things like tobacco and confusing labels on food served that lead customers into eating more calories than intended. David Zinczenko advocates that it is some of the fast food companies fault for the decline in America’s general health. At the end, David chooses not to complain about the legalities, but instead encourages us to let the justice system do its work. In the article David Zinczenko discusses “Shouldn't we know better than to eat two meals a day in fast-food restaurants” we the people of America should know by now that it is

Understand Your Fats and Fiber Samantha Erlitz SCI/241 October 10, 2013 Diana Layne Understand Your Fats and Fiber There are several types of fat, and fat is important to a healthy diet, but in the right quantities. Every gram of fat contains nine calories, regardless of the type of fat you consume. There are also certain fats that are healthier than others and some that are easier to recognize versus hidden fats. “A saturated fatty acid is one in which all the carbons in the fatty acid chain are saturated with hydrogen atoms.” (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2006) These fats can be most commonly found in animal foods, and dairy products. Unsaturated fats tend to be liquid, and do not contain the hydrogen saturation that the saturated
I agree with Zinczenko on his critical viewpoint on how he looks at the fast food industry. Fast food is part of the blame because most of them are not healthy and are bad for consumers. The calories of a Big Mac, medium fry, and a medium Coke are almost equivalent to the daily intake of these industry’s consumers. Zinczenko uses the analogy of a simple salad we would assume is healthy. Our fast food industry needs to provide these nutritional facts in easy reach for their customers.

Question How should McDonald’s respond when ads promoting healthy lifestyles featuring Ronald McDonald are equated with Joe Camel and cigarette ads? Should McDonald’s eliminate Ronald McDonald in its ads? Answer The answer for McDonald’s is to emphasis that cigarettes are always harmful. In contrast McDonald’s menu has a variety of healthy options, so the comparison is wrong because it is of totally different types. In opposite to change the character Ronald or eliminating it from the ads, McDonald’s could target its Ronald to do more advertisements for healthy food and nutrition, they can also label their food with the amount of fat, cholesterol, sugar, and other nutritional values.
Corporations make us fat Many people claim that it is personal responsibility of what you eat, however fast food corporations and their marketing strategies make it almost impossible to say no. From childhood we are conditioned to grab a large combo meal on our way home instead of going to the grocery store then cooking it ourselves. The ease, convenience, and the cheap prices make it all too easy for consumers. Corporations are to blame for America’s obesity problems because of their lack of nutritional information available to consumers, their lack of alternatives, and their brand recognition and advertisements addicting us from childhood. There is no calorie information posted in any fast food restaurant.
