1003 Words 5 Pages
Fast Food Takeover For many generations, we have introduced fast food to millions of new people. Children are now begging to live a lifestyle of fast food. One of the biggest corporation is known as the very evil, McDonald’s. Children do not realize the reality of life until they grow up and come to a conclusion of what they have dedicated themselves to in life. In the article Don’t Blame the Eater by David Zinczenko published in 2002 talks about his personal life and experience by which he was put through with fast food contributing to a major part of his life. In the second article Junking Junk Food by Judith Warner published in 2010 explains the issue of America’s health going down the drain. Both articles present strong ideas of how the …show more content…
In Warner’s article it states how fast food companies are to blame at first because of how they induce us too eat their food. “You can’t change specific eating behavior without addressing that way of life…” (Warner 402).

Fast food cooperation’s do not care of how people are affected, only the income that they receive.

He also exposes how corporations are not properly providing customers with the right nutritional information. He also states how the government should be involved more into taking decision and what people are preferring dealing with obesity. In Junking Junk Food, Warner mostly emphasizes on how the government will the change the point of view of how Americans will see junk food as. In her article she makes the reader think of fast food as stupid and ultimately unhealthy. I also noticed quite a few important names of experts and famous politicians in Warner’s article. She introduced the article the mentioning of Sarah Palin, then with progress from Michelle Obama with the initiative of changing children’s diet, and also Glenn Beck. Then mentioned at the end is Davis Kessler, talking about how American’s can change their image about fast food. Kessler says, “…social norms could change: the huge portions, or eating processed foods…could come to be seen as socially unacceptable”
