It should be stopped and it should be stopped right now. I do my part by eating slow. For example, I eat breakslow

and you people should too. Try it sometime. I think you'll like it ;)

I think fast food should stop!!! It's unhealthy, they're bad jobs, and YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT GOES ON IN A SLAUGHTERHOUSE!!!!! I used to work in a slaughterhouse (I was stupid back then) and I had to do horrible things to animals!!! IT WAS TERRIBLE!!!!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF THE THINGS I'VE SEEN!!! THE THINGS I'VE DONE!!! YOU SHOULD BE THERE!!! Imagine a pig being chopped up, blood removed, and packed into a pattie, and served with pickles, ketchup, and mustard!!! Imagine a chicken being chained to shackles upside-down on a conveyor belt, dipped into an electrified bath of water, taken to a blade that cuts off their heads, and then cut up to bits served as your chicken nuggets. With that said, five words: FAST FOOD COMPANIES ARE SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, that is right because nowadays it became a big problem. It can effect on our generation in the future and that is why parents should not allow their children to eat fast food. We have to eat more vegetables and fruits, or for example, vegetarian burgers. And do you know that some fast-food chain has created a program that targets Latinos with education on healthful meal selection and product composition as well as strategies for improving physical fitness (Institute of Medicine 2006c)? Concern about childhood obesity has also prompted fast-food industry collaborators to make strategic changes. For example, industry observers attribute Disney’s nonrenewal of a long term promotional partnership with a fast-food franchise to growing concerns about childhood obesity (Abramowitz 2006). I believe that these ideas are very interesting and creative. So, I believe that it will be helpful because nowadays many people pay more attention on advertising.

Fast food "restaurants" offer consumers a convenient, cheap, and engineered-to-taste meal. At one point, the benefits outweighed the costs; namely, the costs of obesity and reliance on instant gratification, not to mention the costs of overfarming, genetic manipulation of animals, and advertising aimed at children. Now, I believe, that's beginning to change. We need to obliterate the fast food culture by making the costs overwhelming; we need to market health more often than bad choices; we need to market the delayed gratification of cooking, or eating well slowly rather than quickly.

The main issue is that the United States has a culture, amplified by psychological practices in advertising, of unrealistic expectations of getting quality goods quickly and cheaply, yet without any negative side affects. We want to buy into a workout program where we can lose weight without getting off the couch. We want our clothes to be cheap and sweatshop-free, our restaurants to have a dollar menu, healthier options, and pay their farmers well. And that's not happening. We need to spend more, wait longer, and keep our minds open.

But you can't say that it doesn't make a huge amount of money for the economy, without it I believe we would lose out on a lot of growth. It will not kill you, over eating fast food will cause your health to suffer but one portion of fast food in moderation isn't going to kill you. Also, there's no doubt that you will not put on weight, but certainly not 220023 pounds, anyway it's up to the consumer how much they eat, not the company.

We live in this country for many reasons, most because we were born here. But we all enjoy living as a free country. We have to make choices every day, we are in control of our selfs to make the right choice. I choose not to eat at places such as Micky D's and Burger King because I personally don't like the taste of there food anymore. I love subway, but we have to take responsibility on this subject. Banning fast food would be consider a huge over step on the government. Controlling what we eat is something left for other country's. Do we have a problem with people who are obese? yes, but we have bigger problems than an adult who makes choices that are had for them. Smoking kills people everyday. Women who are pregnant smoke and harm there baby, Alas can be said about eating fast food while pregnant?! But the bottom line is, we shouldn't have to ban things because certain people make bad choices. The Grocery stores are filled with the same junk as fast food, so the bigger thing here is if we said no more Micky D's and Burger King, people would just buy the junk at the store instead.

My cousin who has been over weight most of her life, is not over weight because of fast food. She has emotional problems that cause her to over eat. She has been in therapy for years, she has had lap ban surgery and just recently had 25 pounds of skin removed from her stomach. Yet she over eats, at home. She hides it and it is a comfort to her to hord food. She is very very messed up when it comes to food. She buys way more than she needs to and hoards it at home. Most of the food she buys goes bad, and she will not throw it out. Instead she buys more freezers and keeps on packing food away. Has she joined a gym and worked her butt off trying to lose weight? Yes she has, but until she admits she is emotional attached to food she will always be obese. This is a illness that allot of people have. And the recovery process starts at home, in therapy with a life coach. Not in the government.

Here are some UNHEALTHY facts about why Fast Food Culture should be stopped:

•French fries are actually made in huge factories, frozen, and then processed. The oils and fats are highly processed and highly fatty.

•So often, people have reported finding strands of hair and flies in their burgers. And it’s definitely not once a while experience. What about those which were actually not found and ended up inside your stomach because you were too busy to notice them?

•Processed foods are filled with unhealthy ingredients. They are loaded with fats, sugar, salt, and artificial additives. They are not only responsible for the rising number of obesity cases in children and adults, but they also have serious long-term effects on your health.

•Order iced tea and get it with some sanitizer. A customer actually had this experience with a popular fast food restaurant. She actually got a McDonalds sanitizer in it. This is a cleaning chemical used for kitchen equipment and surfaces. No wonder she decided to sue the restaurant.

•With all the processing and manufacturing that fast food goes through, a lot of essential nutrients go missing. Fibers, vitamins, and minerals get destroyed during this process and what it leaves for you is just unhealthy fats and empty calories.

•Hamburgers are made in huge factories. And one hamburger can contain strips of beef from different cattle from different regions. This increases the risk of contamination as one sick cow in the batch can actually make hundreds of people fall sick in different locations of the country.

•Health guidelines clearly state that people should not consume more than 2 grams of trans-fat a day. But when you consume fast food, such as French fries, you can actually end up consuming about 4-7 grams of trans-fat. This is way too much and definitely not good for your heart.

•Fast food restaurants add a lot of preservatives to keep their food looking fresh. If you want to find out how much of preservatives are present in fast food, try keeping a hamburger for a year. A customer has actually kept a hamburger for 12 years and it still looks all ready to eat.

•Almost everything that you consume in a fast food restaurant is processed; the taste of the original ingredients is destroyed. So, additives are added for giving flavor to the food. These include beef extract and sometimes they won’t even tell you which animal product is being used to give the flavor to your French fries.

•Probably most of us have ended up with food poisoning at least once in our life after eating in a fast food restaurant. Raw meat, unhygienic conditions, and even strange employee behaviors (some of them have actually reported spitting into the food!) are only a few things that happen and are reported regularly.

•French fries are actually made in huge factories, frozen, and then processed. The oils and fats are highly processed and highly fatty.

Nothing particularly wrong here. Oils should be fatty, they are, after all, lipids. I'd be worried if I had a zero-fat or reduced-fat oil.

What's wrong with processing?

•So often, people have reported finding strands of hair and flies in their burgers. And it’s definitely not once a while experience. What about those which were actually not found and ended up inside your stomach because you were too busy to notice them?

Extra protein, I guess. You should be more concerned with what's in all the food you buy from a store or eat from your garden. Insect parts, rat droppings, aphids, fecal bacteria, urine, etc.

•Processed foods are filled with unhealthy ingredients. They are loaded with fats, sugar, salt, and artificial additives. They are not only responsible for the rising number of obesity cases in children and adults, but they also have serious long-term effects on your health.

Fats, sugars and salts are necessary for life. Just don't eat them in excess.

•Order iced tea and get it with some sanitizer. A customer actually had this experience with a popular fast food restaurant. She actually got a McDonalds sanitizer in it. This is a cleaning chemical used for kitchen equipment and surfaces. No wonder she decided to sue the restaurant.

Screwups happen. I'd be amazed if in all the chain restaurants no mistakes ever happened. That would be godly.

•With all the processing and manufacturing that fast food goes through, a lot of essential nutrients go missing. Fibers, vitamins, and minerals get destroyed during this process and what it leaves for you is just unhealthy fats and empty calories.

Too vague of a claim to be meaningful. Try being more explicit so that one can debate or contest the argument.

•Hamburgers are made in huge factories. And one hamburger can contain strips of beef from different cattle from different regions. This increases the risk of contamination as one sick cow in the batch can actually make hundreds of people fall sick in different locations of the country.

So this is an argument against huge factories? Against mass production?

•Health guidelines clearly state that people should not consume more than 2 grams of trans-fat a day. But when you consume fast food, such as French fries, you can actually end up consuming about 4-7 grams of trans-fat. This is way too much and definitely not good for your heart.

Good thing that these foods are fried in a trans-fat free oil now.

•Fast food restaurants add a lot of preservatives to keep their food looking fresh. If you want to find out how much of preservatives are present in fast food, try keeping a hamburger for a year. A customer has actually kept a hamburger for 12 years and it still looks all ready to eat.

Preservatives aren't intrinsically unhealthy. There's actually nothing wrong with this, unless a preservative used is demonstrably shown to be unhealthy.

•Almost everything that you consume in a fast food restaurant is processed; the taste of the original ingredients is destroyed. So, additives are added for giving flavor to the food. These include beef extract and sometimes they won’t even tell you which animal product is being used to give the flavor to your French fries.

Again, what's wrong with processing? Also, do you understand that when it comes to selling animal products, everything is used and it's always been this way? It isn't news, anyone who owns a farm knows this.

•Probably most of us have ended up with food poisoning at least once in our life after eating in a fast food restaurant. Raw meat, unhygienic conditions, and even strange employee behaviors (some of them have actually reported spitting into the food!) are only a few things that happen and are reported regularly.

Eating anywhere will get you food poisoning at some point in your life.

With that aside, did you know that the avg person eat about 7 spiders a year while they sleep? Yep look it up! Any food with out moderation is bad for us. But when will the younger people In this country realize that we have to take responsibility for our selves? We have to make the right choices. No matter what! So a hamburger once a month at a fast food place is ok! But when we start to eat there everyday for every meal.. We'll that person is asking for all sorts of health problems. So the choice should be ours to make, not the government.. They need to step back and step out of our lives.

Yeah, fast food is fast, but is it seriously worth dying young of obesity and the diseases it brings? they shouldn't stop it entirely, but they should cut half the fast food restraunts in the country and replace them with healthier fast food (for example, grilled chicken, vegetables, baked french fries, etc..) America is becoming obese.. also, parents need to learn about calories and how to control their kids' diets.. a child should not have two sodas with french fries and a greasy burger for every meal :/

hello, yes fast food should be stopped. Although, it is comfortable to us to eat in a hurry way, but eating frequent fast food meals causes teens and young adults to gain more weight.

I believe that fast food culture should be stopped because people have a big problem with obesitythere are a lot of people, who suffered from this kind of food. All of us know that fast food contains too much cholesterol and too much fat. that is why it is not healthy for the human body. As Sonya A. , Janell M., Shirley H. , Shiriki K. and Nicolas S.(2007) wrote: "Childhood obesity has become a major societal concern. Rates of obesity among preschool and school-age children have more than doubled in the past three decades: 14% of 2- to 5-year-olds and 19% of 6- to 11-year-"( p.1).

No one can benifit from fast food in any way. And the hearty dinner your mother made is just as good as any fast food, you just need to realize it. Fast food chains can attempt to provide healthy options on the menu, but those attempts will only prove faulty, for there will be a secretly deadly preservative or other artificial ingredient lurking in each meal attempted. And stop analyzing the liberally though-out risks of taking out fast food culture and start analyzing ways you can effectively remove the culture, regardless of how uncool or totaltarian it may be.

They should be stopped but the reason isn't because it is unhealthy. It is because of the way they manufacture it,and the world barely knows that the burgers are actually made of, joints, tendons stomachs, eyeballs and other remains of chicken or beef. never ate at mac'donalds again.

If you're so against fast food, then don't eat it. That's what I do. I don't eat McDonald's unless it's the only place to eat at, and even then I get the "healthiest" thing on the menu.

Each individuals personal eating habits are their own decision.

No adult should be stopped from buying and eating whatever foods they choose. Neither should any vendor be forced to accommodate the whims of the state; as has been done in New York restaurants with respect to restrictions on hydrogenated oils and portion sizes.

Fast food used to mean just that: food that was served quickly. It has come to mean food that is generally unhealthy. There is no reason why this reputation should persist, should the foods healthfulness improve. If consumer demand shifts to a more healthful variety of food, then vendors will respond to this. Then we can expect fast food culture to become both convenient and healthy.

This is really a personal decision.

Side: Fast food culture continues

There's nothing wrong with fast food, as in food which can be prepared and eaten quickly. It's actually very convenient nowadays when most people would rather spend time doing something other than cooking or waiting for someone to cook for them.

The only problem with fast food is that in many places it's associated with junk food, as if only burgers and fried chicken could be served fast.

In Japan, for example, fast food can be quite nutritional and varied. Check out Sukiya's menu, which includes beef, fish, curry, salads and more. This thing can be impressively faster than McD and won't get you hooked on ketchup.

Fast food places were created for one main reason: convenience. They still continue to sell quick food that people go back for after trying it, whether it's for the taste, price, convenience, or anything. Now, fast food business has been stereo-typed for having greasy, fatty, and overall unhealthy food. So if you think these restaurants are unhealthy, you simply shouldn't go there.

Fast food isn't a culture, it's a business model.

And a very successful one.

I believe that they should pay their employees more, but they pay what is legal for them to pay, and they do many very good things like setup scholarships and offer advancements to young people, so I can forgive them the low wages.

And as far as obesity. As liberal as I may be (actually more independant, but this country is so conservative it's the tag I'm given and I'll take it) I do not believe what a person eats is anyone's responsibility but their own. If fast food makes you fat, don't eat it.

It takes less time to make a sandwich than to wait in line at a fast food restaraunt.

A dozen eggs cost as much as a McEgg whatever.

A lb of hamburger is cheaper than a Whopper.

There is no excuse.

A large portion of Americans are children (I'm talking about the adults) who never learned how to eat like a grown up who doesn't have a 16 year old's metabolism, and never learned to say no to stuff they want right now simply because something else is better for them. This is partly societies fault, but a majority the individual's. Obesity isn't a disease, it's a chosen lifestyle.

Fast food for some may mean fats and a lot of exercising to get rid of it, while for others, a way to indulge maybe after a hard days' work.

Now why was fast food created in the first place then? Its because everyone wants things done fast, and apparently in food too. We have approached the stage, for some, that to them, every minute, every second, means an opportunity to do something else more productive that even in the simpliest of waiting for food can be something they cannot bear to stand, thus they seek for fast food.

Now for the question, should the fast food culture be stopped? No, for 2 reasons- preferences and the lag of time. You can't stop someone from indulging themself in a hamburger, you can't get food done in 1 minute like fast food can. It all boils down to preferences and how much you're time you're willing to give out.

Even if we wanted to stop this fast food culture... How do we stop the fast food culture...?

of course, many fast food firms are in crisis as compared with before centuries in the aftermath of the moderner' new menu what is called 'Well-Being.'

but,we've got to recall that we live in capitalism society.

till the gap between rich and poor is vanished(you know,it's impossible.)a fast food never stop,

even in communism society like north Korea,fast food concept recently branched out into north Korea society.

though it is used by only some ruling class,red aristocrat,

but this case show us that fast food never stop.

fast food is already changed and rather adapt to new well-being culture. who can stop this food style in this century?

if you decline that you never eat a fast food,

the third world people,poor class people eat it.

if you'd like to stop distribution of fast food.

you just must pray to all people never eat a fast food.

Personally, I believe that when we have our fast food industries, that its supporting the position that we are always on the go, and always would desire our quick taste of food or a bite to eat while at school or work. Seemingly, who here really cooks a day before work or school, or waked up before thus and has the time to cook a full meal to warm at said establishment when you may only have half an hour (or an hour to some major businesses, i.e. Wal-Mart). So what do most do? They get in the car (or walk) to the nearest McDonalds, Sonic, BK, Arbies, KFC, (or fast food joint) and pay for five dollars or less for a quick meal. Problem solved. So in a way I personally hope that Fast Food continues; despite that, yes, there are negative aspects as well.

In terms of the time consuming, fast foods save lots of time. According to Barton Sparagon, M.D. medical director of the Meyer Friedman Institute in San Francisco, and an expert on stress- related illness, the above are all symptoms of a modern epidemic called “hurry sickness”. In my point of view, it is very convenience that there are places where we can get food very fast and in any appropriate time. Junk foods destroy mealtimes.

According to Barton Sparagon, M.D. medical director of the Meyer Friedman Institute in San Francisco, and an expert on stress- related illness, the above are all symptoms of a modern epidemic called “hurry sickness”. In my point of view, it is very convenience that there are places where we can get food very fast and in any appropriate time. Junk foods destroy mealtimes.

I think it should be continued. Because is a food that can be prepared and eaten quickly.

Is the food that easy to find in everywhere that you go too.

I was anti-fastfood for years, but then I realized a huge reason they were not shutting down or losing lawsuits. Choice. As unhealthy and disgusting as they are it comes down to peoples choices and them eating there. Nobody shoved the food down their throat!

Fast food to some people is good but to others like me it is bad and I do not eat fast food as to lose weight and also to keep myself and prevent any diseases from destroying my life

even though it is unhealthy, it is convenient especially in our fast paced style of life. People are constantly on the move and tend to choose the convenient. Unless organic food can be made cheaper or even healthier food made more accessible, fast food culture is seen to be much more accessible and will continue due to the differing eating habits of humans

If you don't like something, you don't buy it, simple as that. Why stop something because some people don't like it? We all know it's unhealthy yet we still buy it, and fast food companies make a huge amount of money from it because its cheap. The fast food culture is so prevalent in our modern world, it would be a mistake to get rid of it because countries like America rely on it so much. I know it's bad for our health and is not doing anything for obesity levels but there is no way that you can abolish something so immense and relevant in today's world.

I think that fast food should go on because some people don't have tine to sit down and eat a well prepared meal at an good restaurant... Or the money to eat "healthy".

No, it would be to hard to do so! You could limit how often it opens at most.

What's the point? I mean we can buy the same crappy junk food at walmart, and go home and make it. So what is the point I ask those who say yes to this...? We are a free county, we have been free to make our own choices, if someone who is addicted to food they should get help just like an alcoholic should get help for drink him self to death. Food is something we need to survive. But when we over use anything it becomes harmful. We are faced with choices every day and it is our choice to make good choices. No one else's!!

Every fast food is unique. You don't want it to stop because then an unoriginal thinker will steal that fast food idea that someone else thought of

Junk food makes people happy so I can't see taking their happiness away.
