The arrogance of people ranting at companies like KFC and McDonalds for “making people fat” is just astounding – I for one refuse to believe that somebody who is obese can blame the company that produced the fattening product they chose to consume.
There has always been talks of banning fast food commercials and banning the amount of nourishment that one can buy in a fast food transaction – but ultimately, you can’t tell somehow what to do.
I embrace unhealthy foods, I know it’s bad for me, but I don’t see it as an issue and if anyone was to approach me about how what I am inserting into my system will do to my body – well, then frankly I’d be pissed off. It is my choice to eat unhealthily on occasion and that’s my right as a human. I don’t yell at people drinking alcohol for disturbing their liver, and I don’t moan at smokers for damaging their lungs – because they know what they are doing.
Like many things in this world, politicians believe the best method to prevent obesity is to tax the foods that contain the high saturated fat contents and to ban the commercials advertising such foods during children’s television programs and anything that is shown with a General or Parental Guidance rating.
