Paragraph
        Are you hungry? Well, a fast food restaurant is just around the corner. And with all the fattening fast
food options, is it any wonder that 63% of all Americans are overweight or obese. So, can we blame America’s
obesity problem on the fast food industry? Some people claim that fast food has nothing to do with
Americans getting fatter. Others claim that fast food has directly contributed to America’s obesity problem. So
what’s wrong with eating a few French fries? The problem is that most fast food contains high amounts of sodium,
fat and cholesterol, which are bad for your health. Then why can’t we just stay away from fast food? The unhealthy
ingredients in fast food also make you crave it, like a drug addiction! Shame on you, Burger King and McDonalds!
Your industry is responsible for this deadly change in Americans’ eating habits and is most certainly
responsible for the obesity epidemic today!
