Today, many people eat fast food instead of home made food. The reason for this is that fast food is fast, cheap and convenient. However, at the same time, fast food is contributing to a big social problem in the world, which is obesity, and recently some people are beginning to sue the fast food companies for causing their obesity.
My aim is to write a plan for my fast food essay.
My Essay is divided in to two parts which includes positive points and negative points.
1) Unhealthy: In an argument in New York City some of the fast foods are unhealthy (Baker, 2003). Obesity has improved in childhood (Laurence, 2007). Obesity rates have doubled in the UK and USA in the last twenty years (Stevenson et al, 2007). People are still concerned on childrenâ€™s weight because more than 15 percent of children are overweight (Elias, 2004).
2) Litter: Mc ...view middle of the document...
Delpazir Company invested $200,000 in Afghanistan in Fast-food restaurants (Shashdarak, 2005).
2) Quality of service: Fast-food restaurants began to serve a wider client, which brought about a decline in the quality of services in Russia (Sarkisov, 2002).
3) Scheduled employments: In Afghanistan employments scheduled in Mc Donaldâ€™s restaurants (Shashdarak, 2005)
4) Proving safe: Fast-food proved safety in Afghanistanâ€™s restaurants (Shashdarak, 2005)
5) Hygiene: New fast-food restaurants brought clean food in Afghanistan.Mc Donaldâ€™s was the nicest, cleanest and brightest place in all of Palauan (Schlosser, 1998).
6) Taste: Fast-food brought a new taste in Afghanistanâ€™s restaurants (Shashdarak, 2005)
7) Popular: Mc Donaldâ€™s was packed, filled not just with children and their parents but with teenagers, seniors, young couples in Germany (Schlosser, 1998).
Children in China like Mc Donaldâ€™s (Schlosser, 1998).
The first Mc Donald in Germany opened in 1971, twenty years later, it had 400 restaurants; today it has about 850(Schlosser, 1998).
8) Employment: McDonaldâ€™s is one of the largest employers and trainers of young people in Australia today (taken from Mc Donaldâ€™s Australia)
There are clearly great deals of issues associated with the fast food industry as illustrated. It is important for people to know there are side effects affecting these kinds of meals and they can then make their own informed choices as to what food to eat.
I think that people shouldn't attribute their obesity problem to fast food companies, even though the fast food companies provide food which causes negative effects on health. The most important reason is that obesity is the result of individual choices based on liberty. We must take the responsibilities for our choices when given the individual liberty of choice. Moreover, the obesity problem in the world is related to life style, not just food consumption. It is unfair to concentrate the responsibilities for the nation wide obesity problem only on fast food companies.
