I can't imagine many people like that existing considering how heavily mentioned this stuff is... the government and pretty much everybody else goes way out of the way to try and explain this stuff to people.

Actually, the government itself does not really do anything to fight fast food. Why would they?

"In 1970, Americans spent about $6 billion on fast food; in 2000, they spent more than $110 billion. Americans now spend more money on fast food than on higher education, personal computers, computer software, or new cars. They spend more on fast food than on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos, and recorded music - combined."

It's a question of money.

Except... the government does.

The government spends hundreds of millions of dollars to put out healthy eating commericals and other campaigns.  I mean, who else do you think puts that stuff out?

If people actually did care, that money would still be spent.  It'd just be spent on heatlhy fast food.   I mean hell, if even a few more people cared do you know how easy it'd be to start a vegan/vegitarian fast food chain that offered healthy quick food?

I wanted to do that once, before I realized it'd probably just fail because burgers taste better.

Black Bean burgers can actually pretty tasty  (except they can be a little dry)

True, I eat them all the time, but I mean, convincing other people too... probably a tough sell.

Honestly I think the vegetarian hotdogs are leagues above regular hotdogs.

Chicken Nuggets too... just because you avoid the problem of "weird hardness".
