Demand Insurance Companies Stop Investing in Fast Food


A new American Journal of Public Health study has revealed that many of America’s largest insurance companies are investing huge sums of money in fast food restaurants. As of last summer, major health and life insurers owned $1.8 billion of stock in giant fast food companies.

Health and life insurance providers should be working to keep people as healthy as possible not investing in fast food chains that contribute to the obesity epidemic and many other severe public health problems.

The biggest investors were Prudential, Massachusetts Mutual and Northwestern Mutual. Send a letter to all three companies --that each invest hundreds of millions of dollars in fast food -- and tell them it’s time to stand up for their customers’ health. Our health and life insurance companies shouldn’t be financing the fast food that’s killing far too many of us.
