Need your McDonald’s Fast Food Fix?

SHOCKING FAST FOOD FACTS:
-McDonald’s feeds more than 46 million people each day, more than the entire population of Spain.
-You would have to walk seven hours straight to burn off the calories in a Supersized Coke, fries and Big Mac.
-In the United States, we eat more than 1,000,000 animals per hour.
-One in every three children born in the year 2000 (this year’s 7th and 8th graders) will develop diabetes in their lifetime.
-The average child sees 10,000 TV advertisements per year.
-McDonald’s distributes more toys per year than Toys R Us and calls people who eat a lot of their food “heavy users.”
30 million children are obese.
-Last year alone, Americans spent about $115 billion on fast food, more than was spent on higher education, personal computers or new cars combined.
-According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United States spends more on health care and disease management than any other country on the planet – seventeen cents of every dollar in our economy.

On top of that, this is the first generation of children that is expected to have a shorter lifespan than their parents. The key word in that is “expected.” It doesn’t have to be this way, it doesn’t have to happen on our watch. Together, with a tenacity that only the heart knows, we can turn this around.

Our children, while only representing 30% of our population, are 100% of our future. When it comes to restoring their health, the bottom line is that for the sake of our country, we have to.
