Description
Increased consumption of fast food has created a 250 percent increase in obese teens between 1980 and 2008, according to the National Institutes of Health. We know a fast food diet is bad for us, but we love it. This must-have volume doesn't preach or load readers up with bland facts. It provides a series of pro versus con essays that debate issues relating to fast food. Across four chapters, readers will evaluate whether fast food is harmful, how it should be marketed, and whether restrictions should be placed on fast foods. Essay sources include the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Center for Science in the Public Interest, and the Los Angeles Times.
