They say, I say page 41 exercise #2 Summary #1

Summary 1.
It has been interpreted by David Zinczenko that there is nothing healthy for youth to eat of convenience without major expense. He is insisting that the fast food industries responsibility to provide a healthier line of food to it's customers. He also suggest that this will suffice for the customers being solicited to these products anyhow. With all of the phantom calories that he seemingly speaks of, he claims that there are very little options for people to enjoy a tasteful and healthy meal. Although he admits that where a person spends their money is and option, he also claim that the convenience factor is missing is the battle of the American grocery and fast food restaurants industries.

I on the other hand contend these shots taken at the fast food restaurant industry. Just as the parent is responsible for getting to work to make money to support their family- it is also their responsibility to monitor the food comsumption of their children. Should these parents win in these court cases about the affects that the fast food industry has on their children; that decision would contradict the parents responsibility to make sure that their child or children are eating the right things. I qualify my view points with the following statement. The parents that make the household run by being strictly a friend to their child, instead of a responsible person to set the stage to promote a healthy lifestyle, are more than responsible than the person that sold the items. I say this in the fact that  they knowingly paid for their family members to be in an unhealthy situation.

  1. In David Zinczenko's article Don't Blame the Eater, David emphasizes Fast food and young consumers. Many of teenagers tend to eat fast food like McDonald's more than once a day. He asserts that easy access to any fast food stores and Lack of alternative that would be the good reason to eat more fast food and gain weight. Concepts like the drive-thru window were introduced along with the Happy Meal for children in order to provide a fast, affordable, and enjoyable dining which is more accessible than any others healthy food. However most of the consumers of fast food are better to start, try to fend off eating fast food as much as possible. Salad with light dressing and topping it could be a great choice. People should watch out what they eat to keep their body in a good shape and good health. Is better to find out how many calories your body allows to take. If not, in the early future most of the people especially American’s going to be like a cute teddy bear.

    Unfortunately million of people in United State are overweight because of fast food restaurants and lack of physical activities. And our kids grow up in this environment. According to David Zinczenko's article Don't Blame the Eater, type 2 diabetes, obesity-related diabetes, has gone up dramatically from 5% before 1994 to 30% in all of the "new childhood cases of diabetes in this country." As he stated it’s sounds like a medical issues. However, I assume that is not medical issues but If we haven’t control over our eating it can be a serious medical issue. Obesity it can be cussed by environment factor (over eating and laziness) if people generically are not obeys. If you ask me for preventing overweight and obesity parents and families should encore their children to make healthy choices for example go to salad bar instead of fast food and following such as healthy diet and physical activities .
