Spurlock's movie tried on experimenting about eating only McDonald's food product in 30 days. They tried to see if fast food is really a big factor on the ongoing obesity problem in America. According to Spurlock's documentary movie, it's over 37% of American children and adolescents are having too much fat and 2 out of every three adults are obese. He chose McDonalds Fast food for it is found in almost all over the world and even almost everywhere in America. McDonalds is also one of the big companies who influences well people about fast foods due to their advertisements. With the ongoing epidemia, who are we really to blame for this, those fast foods or us Should we also consider our own self to be responsible for being obese
Though fast foods are everywhere and are very convenient especially for busy people, there is still a very big factor to be considered on self discipline when it comes to the food we take in. Even if McDonalds have their products advertised well in televisions, radios, and in adds, we always have a choice to be persuaded by them and buy food from this fast food or not. We are responsible for our own health and that includes much about the food we eat everyday.
McDonalds power over their advertisements to the people, especially to the children only needs proper understanding about the consequences upon always eating fast foods. Those parents should educate their children at early age about what they can really get out of those fast foods. Parents may even improvise their way of cooking food for their children so they will not crave for those fast foods anymore.
Since children are more vulnerable to be persuaded by advertisements, discipline should start home.Second, this education should not only be at home but should also be extended to schools and offices. They should encourage their canteens to prepare healthy foods for healthy living. But this doesn't say we should totally not eat in fast foods, we only mean to eat their occasionally. We can hold our parties there but never eat their everyday.
Fast foods can also regulate the food they serve to their customers. They should think a way to sell foods that are nutritious and are not health hazards. In this way, there will be less blame to them about the epidemia of obesity.
Though children are educated by their parents, parents should serve also a good example or model to their kids. If a child sees what their parents do they think it's good and proper. Though advertisements are everywhere, it is still the parents that should greatly influence their children. Not only the parents should influence them but should always be seconded by the schools they are in to study.
Spurlock did a good documentary movie. Though everything seems to be perfectly presented in the movie, it is not only the fast food eating routine that should be looked at.Different people have also different routines and work everyday. It is not only walking and eating that they do that can affect their health but there are a lot of other things. Our health is also greatly affected of our emotions, lifestyle, and environment.
Fast foods may appear to be one of the causes of obesity but not it has no big factor compared to what we always do everyday. If we are really that lazy who always sleep and do nothing (exercise) then obesity is not impossible for us to happen. Psychological problems can even cause obesity. "When
