Junk food today or tomorrow

Well, people pay the prize(price). This is what i would say, when the government in london has introduced a ban on junk food advertising for teens (link here). Here in the U.S, the fast food industry has grown to the extent that, the general public are not ready to give up their routine. Studies have shown that between 1980 and 2000, obesity rates have doubled. The alarming fact is that among children, obesity has doubled and tripled. Type 2 diabetes which was believed to affect only adults is now being diagnosed among teens. When is the government going to take strict action against the money guzzlers in the fast food industry? The fast food industry has spread globally. It has become a part of the culture in China to eat at these fast food chains. on the other hand, in a reversal, western market is catching up with the rice friendly society. There needs to be sense of awareness among the public, to the health hazards that these giants bring with them to your table.
