It is a well-known fact that the girth/hugeness/ fattiness of people the world over is
increasing at a(n) capital/alarming/precedential pace. Among the suggestions on
how to tackle this problem is the proposition that the price of junk food should be
increased. It is felt that this is a plausible/possible/truthful deterrent to fast food
consumption. Support for this opinion will be shown by looking at how this solution
would lead people to other ingestive/culinary/eating alternatives and encourage
them to eat fast food less frequently.
For one, increasing the price of fast food would push people towards healthier
options. For example, when I was in university, a vegan restaurant opened on
campus that provided dishes free of charge in an effort to raise awareness of vegan
food. As a college kid without much money, I found the price of these dishes very
attractive and became a royal/virtual/loyal patron of this establishment. Thus, as my
experience shows, consumers are callous/sensitive/prone to price and can be
encouraged to eat healthier as a result.
In addition to this, raising the price of unhealthy food would likely encourage people
to buy it less frequently. To illustrate, as a teenager I had a succinct/ brief/reduced
stint working at McDonald’s. During my employment, a month-long promotion was
held making Big Mac hamburgers available at half price. As Big Macs are quite high in
unhealthy fats, I was shocked to see people ea ng them some mes as many as 3
times a day. As this practice discontinued after the Big Mac prices returned to
normal, my experience makes it clear that the frequency with which people eat fast
food moves in correlation with cost. Thus, increasing the price of fast food is a
practice that should be supported in an effort to curb obesity.
As the above shows, price could be a(n) effective/ probably/torpid way to discourage
fast food ingestion and weight gain. It is hoped this idea is put into practice in all
countries where obesity is a problem.
