Representation Of Americans

I believe that America’s society have been and still are represented as the world’s most obese country in the world. More than two thirds of the United States adults are overweight or obese. Research has showed that the heaviest Americans have become even heavier the past decade. About a quarter of 2-5 year olds and about one third of school aged children are overweight or obese in America. America has also been represented in the movie ‘Super-Size Me’ directed by Morgan Spurlock as a litigious society. This is so because many Americans enjoy there fast food and feel that it is the companies fault (e.g. McDonalds) for their obesity problems, so they tend to take legal action and get the companies in trouble. The documentary has changed my opinion on fast food and made me think twice about still eating it, in particular McDonalds. In America I know that there is a lot of money spent on fast food and that they make a lot of money in return, but a large amount of money is spent on advertisement and is proven that it is successful because of the amount of fast food sold each day but in particular McDonalds. I personally think Morgan examining the influence of the fast food industry and going on a one month diet solely eating McDonalds wasn’t so much of a good idea considering he was quite a healthy man, and by doing this he was torturing his body and putting himself at the risk of getting quite sick.
