fries, colas, sundaes and red meat are the heart killers.|
really sad seeing how so many people jostle and crowd to spend hard-earned money to enjoy food that's proven as not nutritional.
the way about it is multipronged:
expose the bad practices especially .. one fast-food chain (KFC) reuses the frying oil for up to ten days, and prolong its use by throwing in some cancer-causing additives, it is so said.
list out all the findings on how fast-food weakens health.
make a strong psychological message that if parents love their children, they should give them good nutrition and teach them discipline.
all this can be done in schools; use that as a foundation to build more consumer awareness.
two, beat them in their own game: create a local fast-food chain that serves only a few products but all are nutritious AND delicious.
both healthy food and delicious food need not be mutually exclusive; it will call for stronger research both in the areas of food technology and consumer tastes, as well as some savvy advertising, and of course, learning how they do it - consistent standards, right pricing, careful location, outlet maintenance, staff tranining, consistent accounting, well-engineered cooking equipment.
three, be extremely careful of colas and other fizzies: they're just sugared water with some coca root extracts that's addictive; people have said that sugar is poison, so include cakes, sugared breads, icecreams, chocolates, junk foods, etc. Whatever their economic value in terms of employment, all these should be reevaluated carefully; people and consumers must know the hidden costs to society in the end and to themselves from consuming too much of these - how to control weight by bringing back exercise and chinese health activities should be advised.
four, regulatory - put in place more rules on what should and should not be in the fast foods; if they want their licenses renewed, they should learn to comply - after all, healthy customers make better repeat customers; if they don't abide, expose them on tv, the media and forums; these are also good places for educational programmes on good health from better eating.
five, the beauty of alternatives- more vegetables, water and exercise.
One fears with the opening up, too much of the causes of western modern-style sickness has also been imported together with the new methods.
See what is good for the people, do what is good for the people, and create new and better alternatives as antidote, competition and alternative to bad things made to appear good by the multinationals.
