Should fast food be banned?

Posted by   + Show Post
I don't think they should because it was the persons choices about eating the food at the fast food place. So why banned something that someone sometimes finds rewarding to have as long as your smart about it.

Quoting tennisgal:

I just said that to my mom the other day. my granpa used to bring a box of oatmeal pies (Little Debbie cakes) every friday when he would come for a visit and i LOVED them, i had one the other day after years and years and it tasted like fake greasy sugar. it was terrible...and slightly disappointing b/c i had loved them so much. 



Quoting Pink.Sunshine:

Big macs? Banned? I don't think so! I don't need others making me eat healthy. They've already done enough of that by changing just about every single product I grew up on. They all taste like crap now.

No. Not enough jobs as is. Plus free will and free choice. No one forces a person to eat at a fast food place, and I don't think it's anyone's right to stop someone from eating what they want.

Quoting kryptomom:

 Define "fast food".  Most chain restaurants serve sub quality food.


 This was my thought...I consider Chili's, Applebee's, and most places like that as fast food.

That can be said about a lot of things. It should be legal because no one is forced to do it? I don't agree with that logic and believe that the government has some responsibility to protect its citizens. The crap that's currently being disguised as food and making millions of people sick, whether by their own will or not, should be better regulated in my opinion.

Quoting tennisgal:


but no one is being forced to eat there. quality may be subpar...but they have a customer base who CHOOSE to eat there, right?

With regards to diseases costing the gov't money...that's only true if you are on state medical aid, right??


Quoting mmmonkey:

Not banned, but the bar should be legally raised on what type of food can be sold there. I mean some of the shit they sell does not even qualify for food. It causes diseases and then costs the government billions of dollars.

but in this case it's to protect them against themselves and that is way too slippery of a slope when calling for government intervention.

Yeah. Make it illegal. That will stop it from happening... like marijuana and cocaine. Those never are used. *sarcasm

I wouldn't care. I'm a heavily medicated, diseased fat-ass, not a fast food junkie fat-ass.
