"Eight in 10 Americans eat fast food at least once a month and half eat it every week according, to a Gallup Poll. Yet most people who eat fast food know it's bad for them. So why do they keep eating it?

The answer is simple: the benefits of eating fast food outweigh the long-term implications for most people. However, once you read these reasons why all those trips to the drive through may be slowly killing you, you may just want to stop eating fast food after all…"

All from a guy with a financial and personal agenda.

Everything in moderation!

We eat it very rarely – living out in the bush as we do. But the odd meal now and then never hurt anyone.

Here's a reality check.

You are eventually going to die anyway, so why not enjoy yourself in the interim.

"Fast Food" isn't the poison that many try to say it is.

Plus, some ingredients have preservatives in them, which if/when ingested, might lead to increased longevity, rather than early mortality.

Well, I'd almost kill for a decent doner-kebab with chilli-sauce. Ab-sol-ute-ly delicious.

Unfortunately we cook all our food from scratch, including pizzas in our covid-lockdown working-from-home kettle-bbq.

I'd eat more of it if I could afford it. I need to gain the weight… ;-)

And yet, the average life expectancy goes up.

As a non suffer of over weight, that seems to me to be the worst part of fast food.

I'm not one of 8 that eat fast food at least once a month. Married to a Thai that is a great cook I find other food bland. Even Thai restaurant food does not taste all that great. But I totally agree with moderation.
