In your argument, you never stated if individuals should give up fast food on their own free will, or if the government should intervene. Which do you support?

Should we stop eating fast foods? Probably. Should the government force us to stop eating fast foods? Absolutely not. To have sovereignty over your own body is to have the ability over which foods you shall and shall not put into your body; my body is outside the jurisdiction of the government, no matter what crackpot law they try to enact that says otherwise.

I agree with in some cases. For example, that we are the hosts of our body and only we should care about it! You are absolutely right in this case. But I don't agree with your thoughts about the government policy. First of all we should answer the question: what is the main purpose of our government. In my opinion it's to make population's life easier and better. I think "better" means happier and healthier. And fast food is a direct reason of many diseases of people. That's why the government should introduce the policy about the prohibition of fast food in the country, because people wouldn't stop eating flatfoot, while they see the advertisement of fast food and the fast food cafes in each corner of the city.

what is the main purpose of our government.

The purpose of the government is to protect and serve the populace. Not to dictate to them what they may or may not do.

In my opinion it's to make population's life easier and better.

But not to the point where they declare that they've more power over my body than I have.

And fast food is a direct reason of many diseases of people.

Can you provide a study, or something to confirm this?

That's why the government should introduce the policy about the prohibition of fast food in the country

We prohibited alcohol, and the likes of Al Capone became extremely wealthy and, as a matter of fact, more people consumed alcohol than before the Prohibition. We prohibit marijuana and the like, and people such as Pablo Escobar become wealthy and plenty of people use drugs. What makes you think that banning fast food will be any different? All it shall accomplice, in the long run, is the government declaring greater control over your body, your sovereignty.

while they see the advertisement of fast food*

No cigarette and marijuana ads around here, but plenty of users. Your argument fails to live up to scrutiny.

Yes you can get fat and some of the stuff in the food are really gross and not that good for you. I once in awhile have fast food but I mostly eat homemade food which is better.

You really think home-cooked food is better? Maybe if you grew the ingredients yourself, but if you buy them from a store, then where is the difference?

Of course it's better. You know (mostly) where the food came from, you know what went into making it. The entire experience is more satisfying. But, if you don't have time to make a meal, or sit for an hour and a half in a restaurant, what are you going to do? Go hungry, or go McDonald's?

Eating fast food is fine. All foods should be eaten to portion. Eating two BigMacs with large fries and 32oz drink is just as eating two hamburgers with a lot of fries and a big large soda.

I don't think that fast food is good, though it us very convenient and cheap way to eat. First of all, fast food clog your arteries - the result is heart disease. Heart disease is a faster death, isn't it? And if you you want to die faster, you are welcome! Secondly, fast food frequently causes completeness and elevated blood sugar, resulting - metabolic disorder, and it means a faster death too! And finally, fast food is addictive. It means it's a drug, and I think everyone knows any drug is a harmful think. We should change our way of life at all, because health is the main thing in our life. I hope nobody of you is ill, and may be that's why you don't know that it's very unpleasant to have diseases. And fast food one of the main reasons of the majority of illnesses. That's why don't pay attention on advertisements of super size Big Mac, and eat the healthy food, such as fruits and vegetables! Change your life and be healthy!

Oh, please where you are getting that information.

Secondly, fast food frequently causes completeness and elevated blood sugar, resulting - metabolic disorder, and it means a faster death too!

Whatever!

And finally, fast food is addictive. It means it's a drug, and I think everyone knows any drug is a harmful think

Fast food is not addictive. I eat it once or twice a week, and I could easily not eat it all. I eat it because it is good and convenient.

We should change our way of life at all, because health is the main thing in our life.

Since now that you don't eat fast food, what do you plan on doing with your immortality?

I hope nobody of you is ill, and may be that's why you don't know that it's very unpleasant to have diseases.

I am not worried about it, I am going to enjoy life and enjoy what life offers, and if it is fast food, then I will take some. In the end, if the apparent fast food scare doesn't kill me, then SOMETHING ELSE WILL. KNOWN FACT!!!

Change your life and be healthy!

How about you just worry about yourself?

Fast Food restaurants offer a variety of different kinds of foods. Eating a hamburger everyday won't kill you, but it's good to keep your diet diverse, because it can be bad for your health.

Fast food restaurants, though, are not known for their healthier choices because people, in general, don't go to a fast food restaurant just to eat a grilled chicken platter or a salad (with or without dressing). They tend to want a hamburger with fries and soda, and good for them. If you are worried about your health, choose your food carefully. But if you're not, eat whatever you want.

In the end, no matter what someone eats, they have a 100% chance of dying. Proven fact.

My own choice, not yours.

That's why so many people kill themselves, right?

I don't see how fast food will kill me faster than non-fast food.

What food should I replace with fast food in order to not die as fast?

So this grandfather is lying in a hospital bed after a heart attack, remembering the fatty hamburger he had the night before. His relatives are all gathered around him and he explains to them that he doesn't feel so good. His doctor pipes in that the grandfather is so week he can't even lift 10 pounds.

After hearing this, the grandchild asks, "Oh no, grandpa...., how are you going to go to the bathroom?"

And the grandfather smiles as he thinks:

Greasy hamburger: $6.75 (plus fries and a Diet Coke).

Triple bypass: $3,000 (out of their own pocket).

Having your grandson announce to the entire family that your manhood weighs in at 10 Lbs.: Priceless ;)

No, we should stop eating fast food only because it's mostly disgusting.

That is simply your opinion, in my opinion McDonald's is the least "tasteful" of all the major fast food dumps.

Everyone agrees that junk food is not healthy, moreover such food don't contain nutritious and so on and so forth, but ,still they are very popular and, knowing all the bad sides of fast food, people still continue to eat fast food. Fast foods are convenience. Hamburgers, hot dogs are always warm. When you get the food it will always be hot. Moreover, the only thing you need to do is to buy the food, no preparation is needed and you don't have to wait a lot of time to get your food. Moreover, junk foods destroy mealtimes. Finally, even if it sounds strange, fast foods spread American values worldwide. Everyone knows McDonald’s which sells their products all over the world. Nowadays, fast foods are part of American culture, known all over the world. That is why people don't stop eating fast foods and probably will not stop eating at least in the next 30 years...

I would ask you, and you will spoil your health just because hamburgers are always hot? And would you do everything that is convenient. If, f.ex., it would be convenient to jump from the ninth floor, would you do it?

If it were convenient, sure. If you want an example of where it may be convenient, consider being paralyzed almost entirely; you've only some use of your hands, with which you control a wheelchair. Wanting to die, just about the only way that it can be done is by going to the ninth floor (or tenth, or thirteenth, etc.) and driving through a window. And, no matter what laws the government may make forbidding suicide, once it is done, there can be punishment inflicted by the government, making the entire law pointless.

mm you do have a point when it comes to possibly addiction..but still you can't ignore the fact that allot of people such as myself rarely eat fast food and still have control over it and also have a great health but also on the other hand fast food does cause addiction and it is also a main reason for obesity and alot of deaths i agree with you on the fact that it could kill as well!

If their food will be healthier, it wouldn't be fast-food restaurant. May be it will be the usual restaurant. And I guess you understand fast food is really harmful thing, and we should stop to eat it entirely.

So, I just read mostly all of us against for fast foods. However, I also want to say about positive sides. The positive sides you will save your time. Fast food saves time in today's fast-paced society. People can order fast food on their way to or from work, without ever leaving their car.
