Australian Interpretation of Super-Size Me
Australia today is ranked as one of the fattest nations in the developing world, obesity in Australia has more than doubled in the past 20 years. Almost 2 in 3 Australian adults (63%) are overweight or obese. 10 Percent more adults are overweight than in 1995. 1 in 4 Australian children (25%) are overweight or obese. As you can see that these days more and more people are becoming obese because of fast food, McDonald’s is one of the main contributors to this. Many Australian eat fast food because it is cheap, affordable and easy. It’s easy because its quick and an alternative for people who can’t be bothered cooking. Australians are now becoming more aware that eating fast food isn’t the best thing for you and your body. Australians that eat fast food regularly are putting themselves at the risk of suffering from diabetes, heart diseases and many more harmful diseases. Fast food is the second highest contributor to coming down with diabetes and then smoking is the third highest. Just goes to show that eating fast food on a daily basis or regularly is worse then smoking!
Viewing the documentary Super-Size Me directed by Morgan Spurlock has changed my opinion on eating fast, this is so because now that I have viewed this I am aware of a lot of things that I wasn’t aware of before. I believe that eating fast food in Australia isn’t as bad as eating it over in America because we don’t have as much as a variety as they do, and we also only have 2 sizes in most cases which are regular and large, compared to America which have a supersize option which consists of bigger everything, chips, drink and the burger.
