    This kind of correlates to the Fast Food Poll

    I love me some fast food any day especially and A&W bacon cheeseburger but what ever happened to parents NOT BUYING the kids fast food? I am the parent of a 1 and 2 year old and just because they see a fast food ad on TV doesn't mean that they get to it. Parents just need to stand up to their kids and prepare some food at home.

    Its really unfortunate that companies like Mc Donald's continue to sell such a poor excuse for "food", they have the power to transform America by simply making there food more healthy. Sure taking away the advertisements might stop a few people from getting a big mac, but it's up to the parents to educate there children on healthy living, and exercise. And to live and set a good example of that healthy living. Obesity isn't just a problem with the youth, its a problem with grown adults as well.
