Transcript of Fast Food Affects in the 21st Century

Fast Food Effects in the 21st Century
Adults and especially children are being affected with weight gain, cancers, disorders, and other illnesses that are attributed to eating Fast Food.

Out Look on Life

“In 1900, 2 percent of meals were eaten outside the home. In 2010, 50 percent were eaten away from home and one in five breakfasts is from McDonalds.”

Back in the 1900's processed, chemical, Fast Food was not around like it is today. People took the time to keep family food traditions, spent more time with family, and made their meals. People already knew what was healthy for them because they were taught as children what real food was.

Now a days people are so busy and careless that we do not take the time to keep family food traditions, spend quality time with family, and are not being taught healthy eating habits.

How Food is effecting generations to come
"Millions of children are shunning vegetables and watching too much television, creating a generation who will die younger than parents will, researchers have warned."

In America we are experiencing more illnesses from "food" than ever in American history.
We are always hearing of new cancers, disorders, and other illnesses that we never had 50 years ago.
Out Look on Life
"The food you eat can be either the safest & most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison." Ann Wigmore.
How Food is Effecting Generations to Come
Children are eating less whole foods: fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, and quality meats/dairy.

And consuming processed Fast Foods for their "nutrition".

When children are eating non nutritional meals and not being physically active that's when health issues arise.

A recent study done by Sion Gillespie, chief executive of British Heart Foundation which conducted the study with University of Oxford:
Around two - five 13 year old's, 39% of girls and 43% of boys drink soft drinks every day.
Almost half of boys and over a third of girls aged 13 also go without breakfast, as do almost a third of 11 year old's.
This figure is even higher among 15 year olds with 57% of girls and 38% of boys go without breakfast.
Most girls and boys aged 13 do not do the recommended one hour physical activity a day compared with 20% of 11 year olds.

"These figures are a warning that many of our children are in grave danger of developing coronary heart disease in the future if they continue to live the same lifestyle."
Even though we live in a time period of stressful schedules, with little time for family, traditions, and conforming to fast food, its never to late for a change.

Fun facts of the history of Fast Food
The first official Fast Food in America was in 1919.
The first corporation was called A&W.
Fast Food was first develop for those away from home who needed a meal to eat.
In the 21st Century Fast Food is still for people away from home who need something quick to eat, but its developing into a habit for laziness.
The Fast Food industry uses additives such as salt, sugar, artifical flavoring, artifical preservatives, and processing techniques that limit the nutritional value on the final product.

Some of the many ingredients found in almost every Fast Food product:
High Fructose Corn Syrup
which helps to cause: Diabetes, Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome, speeds up the aging process, and decreases immune system.
Modifed foods
wich helps cause: significant changes in blood cells, liver, and kidneys which can lead to disease.
Processed meats
which can lead to: Obesitiy, Heart Disease, and other forms of cancers.

Spending the mula

In 2000, the United States consumers spent 110 billion dollars on Fast Food (which increased from 6 billion sense 1970).



With America alone, spending billions of dollars on Fast Food, does anyone take into mind...with that money World Hunger would be diminished?!

"Families spend just eight hours a week with each other on average." says Jaymi Mocann.

With only 8 hours average being spent with family a week we can see why family food traditions and making food is not being met.

People are relying on Fast Food to feed ourselves and families which is only decreasing family values on teaching children how eat healthy, learn how to cook, and live a healthy life style.
