Obesity in contemporary society

After watching Super Size me iv realized how bad obesity is. Its the 2nd leading cause of preventable deaths the first being smoking. I think its something that shouldn't be taken lightly and its a really important topic that has to change. Over 400 000 people in the USA is obese that is a lot.

Morgan really did well in keeping it together to through out the documentary and proved how bad it is to eat maccas so often. More then 25 million Americans have diabetes's which is over half of the population of America! These days cancer is so much more common since eating processed foods like that can cause it. It has to change but I feel like its too late. In 100 countries there are 30 000 mac Donald's stores. Obesity has to be taught from a young age. Schools should have a program that teaches kids the effects of fast food. Because that that age they don't understand! If schools did this there would be a lesser amount of obese people. Also canteens should sell healthy foods not just junk. At the Servite canteen alone the foods are all junkie. To stop obesity young people need to understand the effects. Its taking small steps like this that will make a difference
