I found the comments relating fast food as excess interesting. It
was suggested that fast food and the related excesses should be seen in
opposition to "Starvation" - does that mean that those who 'have' indulge
in fast food, and those who 'don't have' do not? in my humble opinion,
those with less disposable income are more likely to consume fast food.
Healthy food is often "expensive" food - which may explain why the poorest
of our society are often heavier (which may suggest they have enough to
eat, but in fact they can only afford the inexpensive "junk" foods)
"McDonald's" is the poor man's "Planet Hollywood". Perhaps using art to
look at economic inequities would be an idea.
