How has fast food advertising affected american culture?
It is common today to see a fast food restaurant at the corner of any neighborhood. This is because these franchises are gold mines for any restaurant manager. They do not care how bad the food is to our health and apparently neither do we. [ People, especially children and teenagers, are constantly attracted to fast food. It is also clear that children are more attracted than the labels than
the food itself. It is because of advertisements that we have a constant rise in child and teen obesity in America. The rate of child obesity rose higher after the late '90s because of the increase in the number of fast food restaurants. Fast food contains more fats, sugars, and carbohydrates, and far fewer fruits and non-starchy vegetables. Fast food also adds nearly 200 more daily calories that studies find, which adds six extra pounds each year. Though many blame the fast food industry for the rising obesity epidemic we are experiencing, are we the consumers the ones to blame? Those who agree with that statement believe we the consumers have the choice to eat fast food or not. Fast food restaurants are merely just promoting their food. They are just giving the consumers the option to buy fast food; they are not forcing anybody to eat it. When it comes to children becoming obese, isn't it the parents who should be watching over them? Children these days consume so much food and many of them don't get the required amount of exercise. But we don't see video game creators getting sued for creating games, which have kids sit on their butts and do nothing for hours at a time. These video games are partly why children don't get enough exercise. Fast food isn't the one making America fat; Americans are making themselves fat. They should know how much food is too much. They should also be aware that in order to stay fit they also need exercise. Is the fast food industry really to blame? ]

how have fast food advertising affected American culture
Weegy: Fast food advertising has been focusing on youth to get a younger crowd to their stores; they also have been focusing on "healthier" meals, which is supposed to encourage people who generally wouldn't eat there to consider eating there. [ In my opinion, advertising for fast food has just become a joke. It doesn't matter how "healthy" they say their meals are; fast food is not healthy. ] (More)

how have fast food advertisements affected American culture?
Weegy: Fast food restaurants can possibly be seen as the drug pushers of the culinary world, shoving their poison down the throats of suspecting, yet inactive customers. [ They deal everyday on the corner, yet the community's barely doing anything to stop it, sometimes encouraging them through patronage. Fast food has never been seen as a healthy way to eat, but even with extremely persistent enemies of the industry pumping out Michael ... (More)
