Most food in moderation, does not threaten a healthy American way of life. Many families still prepare slow food for family meals. However, fast food, continuously marketed as a viable option for a quick meal for a busy family, has grown popular and poses a problem .

A quick solution to a long term problem does not solve the problem in the end; the inevitable eventually crashes down. Fast food remains an increasting problem for the growing American waistline.

Not only do fast food restaurants dominate the country, but also fast food retains the ability to influence and even control teenage students looking for an ‘easy’ job. The horrid reality of fast food appears frequently in teenage employees by the way their eyes droop and their shoulders sag after a 6 – 8 hour work shift immediately following after school. Not only does fast food affect waistlines, but also the sleep schedule, study habits, and grades of even part time high school students or even college students.

However, students normally do not protest these conditions. Procuring a job that does not require any experience outside of the fast food industry remains rare.

With so few options and so little money, students experience a quandry at what to do to earn money.  To help support their families or to earn a little saving or spending money for themselves keeps them returning to the fast food industry.

No matter the reason, fast food continuously causes problems to the waistline, to the student, or to the wallet, and therefore, fast food will hurt Americans rather than help. Until a solution to cheap easy meals that most can indulge in, waistlines will continue to grow, grades will continue to drop, and American’s general health will continue to deteriorate.

Slow food–always better than fast food.
