WARNING!!!  HERE IS THE FAST-FOOD

 

 

 

I strongly believe that lawmakers, in general, should ban new fast-food locations from opening for several reasons: first, fast-food is very well known to be targeted at specific audiences; second, fast food has been directly proven to cause obesity, which is an enormous issue in the United States; and lastly, the kinds of regulations that I support have been proven to work in several cities, including New York and Los Angeles.

Essentially, fast food is a slowed explosive, just like tobacco and alcohol; all three indisputably result in a variety of illnesses and conditions. However, while extra taxes have been passed and are assessed on the purchases of tobacco and alcohol, no such tax exists on fast food! The industry smartly targets a very specific audience which constitutes the majority of fast food consumers— individuals from low-income neighborhoods. For them, healthy or organic food is simply not affordable. In general, communities as such lack good supermarkets and are limited in their food buying choices. Yet, nearly all of these communities have one thing in common— fast-food chains.

Warning! Unfortunately, fast food owners use another tactic to have more consumers. They are playing with children’s emotion and abilities to easily become addicted to the food they make. So, in this case, as a parent, it would be difficult to resist them.

 

So, in my opinion, we cannot band the existence of fast food restaurants. Nonetheless, we should effect on lawmakers, advertising companies and the fast food owners, to decrease the amount of advertising of their food everywhere without any limits. Instead, we need to encourage them to remodel their food centers to something healthy and even interesting for everyone.
