Fast Food, Slow Food: Decline Of The Junk

You think of fast food when someone mentions burgers and fries. It’s tempting to eat a burger with cheese and a soda. But then, you have to ask yourself: Is it healthy? The answer is no. However, fast food chains would not give away their entire fortune to anyone with the ability to alter the consumer’s ability.

The next question is: why are you second-guessing yourself about eating junk food? As a matter of fact, almost every doctor, nutritionist, or gym instructor recommends against it. Junk food can actually be detrimental to your health. It is so delicious, and it never fails delights the tastebuds.

Humans are an ever-evolving race. Thankfully their brains are now far more advanced than it was in the past. So now we are able to deal with the infamous ‘junk food syndrome. Even though it’s slow going, people are actually taking the ball to ‘healthy.’

Another force against fast food chains is the science behind commodities-economics. Is it possible to see how economics could be connected with the ‘junk-food’ syndrome? It is the law that diminishes marginal utility. Consuming junk foods is becoming less of a utility to consumers. This can simply be translated as: getting bored.

Bored means they’re:
1) Eat healthier foods
2) To avoid obesity, or other direct/indirect health problems caused by junk food,
(3) are attracted to gourmet and organic edibles.

Americans are seeking a healthier lifestyle free from junk food and all its ill effects. Schools and hospitals are seeing a shift in their cafeterias, which have canceled contracts with fast food restaurants and switched to healthier options. Pepsi, McDonald’s etc. have seen a drop in sales. These companies allocate large amounts of money to R&D in an effort to develop healthier fast food alternatives.
