WHAT! It seems as though fast food is becoming such an issue that LA is looking to ban it for a whole year! This will allow healthier resturants a chance to thrive. Is this out of control or is it an excellent idea?
It seems that Los Angeles doesn’t want to give people the option though. LA wants to ban fast-food restaurants for one whole year. Since obesity is becoming a huge problem in the area, the city wants to push out the fast-food places and give other healthier restaurants a chance to move in. This ban has people’s health in mind, but the restaurant industry thinks this idea is unfair. One restaurant owner said, “What’s next — security guards at the door saying ‘You’re overweight, you can’t have a cheeseburger’?”
So what do you think about this proposed ban? Do you think it’s long overdue? Are you for the elimination of fast-food joints? Or do you think these types of restaurants should be allowed to remain open, being that people are responsible enough to make decisions about their own bodies?

Although there are many bad choices on the menu of most fast food restaurants; many are making positive changes to their menus to cater to the health of the U.S. Maybe instead of banning fast food they should just give the fast food chains an alternative. Half of their menus should be healthy choices and the other half bad choices. This way the community has more health conscious options.
