Fast Food Regulation: Yes or No?
Olivia_WebMD_Staff posted:
One of the most popular ongoing debates is whether fast food restaurants should be regulated regarding the types of food items they sell.

Although most of these establishments are now serving a selection of healthier fare, the menus are still full of fried foods laden with calories.

Is it our decision to eat or not to eat, or is the restaurant/company responsible?

Tell us what you think.

Here in Sydney, Australia, they're already putting up nutrition stats (Energy/Calorie intake) up on the menu at major fast food outlets (McDonald's, KFC) and some other food outlets are also following suit. It can never be bad thing, it's the consumer's choice on what to eat, if they choose to eat unhealthily, it's their choice. =>

Also, I'm not sure about USA and other countries, but Australia has healthier McDonald's options offering salads and non-fried food.
