Fast Food : Let the Consumer Feel the Pinch
The calories that contribute to ill health are loaded in fast foods, which deserve to go off the shelf and consequentially off the lives of many , who are negatively influenced by their advertised benefits to health. To begin with, the ideal thing would be to ensure the promotional campaigns for unhealthy foods are off the air , so that people are dished out the right information about healthy diets

. According to Professor Tess van der Merwe from the International Society for the ken Study of Obesity, a levy of extra tax on fast foods will deter many from making it a quick food option. This might be the only way to tackle the burgeoning problem of obesity.

With the advancements in technology and more money power, people are resorting to eating high calorie food, consuming sugary drinks and easily becoming couch potatoes. Health warning on junk foods and laying a total ban on useless advertisements that promote such products should be immediately stopped so that people are given the right message.
