      I believe there are a couple of main reasons people
      flock to fast food places. First, it’s EASY. We in
      general want things NOW. And for alot of people the
      idea of sitting down and planning their meals for the
      week seems overwhelming. So much easier to “just pick
      something up”. Secondly, FAT tastes GOOD. We can’t
      escape that little fact. And if you compare the
      prices of “regular” foods to the “fat-free” versions
      in the grocery store, you usually have to pay more
      for the fat-free/healthier items. Not everything but
      especially the quick to fix items, like the fat-free
      hot dogs and such. I just look at it like this, I’ll
      either pay a little more for the fat-free items now
      or spend in in health care and prescriptions in a few
      years when all that unhealthy foods results show up.
      And with so much information available in this day and
      age, no one has the excuse of ignorance to what effect
      fatty foods and bad eating habits will bring. I don’t
      believe the fast food restaurants are liable for
      people making poor choices. No one forces you into
      McDonalds, you go there of your own free will. We
      must be careful what we try to legislate, because we
      will soon be forcing alot of businesses to close out
      of fair of stupid lawsuits, or leaving our choices to
      the government to tell us the “right” food to eat.
      People just have to take responsibility for their
      choices and lifestyles. Don’t push it off on others
      and always look for someone/something to blame when
      things don’t turn out just “peachy”.
      Stepping off my “personal responsibility” soap box
      now.
