Scientists think people are damaging their health by eating more junk food, some think education want people to eat less junk food, while others think the education will not work. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Fast food restaurants have sprung up in every corner of cities and these restaurants inevitably provide the customers junk food. Most people reach a consensus that they are harmful and they have caused tremendous diseases like heart attack and diabetes. While individual real division is in the measures that can eliminate the harms, some of them insist that educating conquers the deleterious effects easily. I doubt whether it could function well alone.
The ones are supporting that it performs suitably have persuasive comes from the past experiences. Although in the ancient days, lead was widely used in water pipes to carry water to residents, designers abandoned it after the science revealed its poison could aggrandize many mental illnesses. Furthermore, people had transformed lifestyles from primitive one to a modern one after they were conditioned by the education systems. Many people neglect the harms due to their unawareness of the dangers the junk food contains. Once they realized it, they would avoid this kind of food and adapt themselves to a healthy diet habit. Training with the ability of distinguishing potential dangers from exaggerated ads from the producers of junk food.
However, I question whether mere reliance on schooling would curb the spread the intake of such food. Initially, many people choose them not just because of the flavor and taste but the necessity of limited dinnertime. Companies hope their employees be more productive in working time by cutting off lunchtime to half an hour. As a result, many workers have no adequate time to finish their lunch and they reluctantly switch to fast food. Second, the living spaces are accelerated by the longer distance between work and home. Many would travel more than 2 hours to commute a day. After work, they would be so tired to cook themselves and then eat out. Finally, fast food usually has an advantage in terms of price and of serving time. People prefer it for the low price and convenience.
To sum up, I believe various reasons attributing to the prospering of fast food. Residents feed on such food mainly because they have to rather than they like to. To rid harms of the restaurants, we should coordinate efforts of the whole society, such as reduction of working time, prolonging of dinnertime, good construction design of working positions and residential ones.
