Health and Fast Food

New studies reveal that not only is fast foods continuing to become a major part of what Americans eat on a regular basis, it’s also too much. According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control, more than 80 million adults eat fast food regularly. The role fast food plays in the American diet contributes to several health risks like obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes.

According to the CDC, higher income families eat more fast food than middle or lower-income families. Men also eat more fast food slightly higher than women. Ordering fried chicken or a burger is something hundreds of millions of Americans love to do, but studies conclude that we may love it just a little too much.
