Is the Era of Fast Food Ending?

By | June 8, 2015

Internal or intrinsic contradictions do not last. Where they do last can be done only through brainwashing or “re-education training”, the threat of force, the use of force or other means to compel the use of that internal or intrinsic contradiction. Unfortunately for the fast food industry, it does not (or, at least, not yet) have that enforcement capability.

One internal contradiction (and one not mentioned in the “Is the Era of Fast Food Ending?” infographic) is that of the term itself: “fast food”. In the United States, fast food restaurants serve food quickly and affordably. Family-owned restaurants, on the other hand, are more relaxed and tend to be more expensive (although they do usually offer a much greater selection on their menus). In other countries, especially India, fast food restaurants serve the food inexplicably slowly and seem to be made-to-order, and are significantly more expensive. In fact, just the tax on a typical meal is enough to pay for a meal elsewhere. Family-owned restaurants, on the other hand, offer food almost as soon as you sit down and are sometimes cheaper than buying a snack (although they often do not have as much variety of meals as they do in fast food restaurants).

Another contradiction (and which is explored in the infographic) is that of the health of the fast food. We have always known that fast food is not the same thing as health food. We grew up on Hostess Twinkies. We knew that while it was not healthy for us, neither was it harmful (as far as we know). It does not cause cancer, strokes, Alzheimer’s, heart attacks or other medical issues. Even if it can contribute to those things, it was always meant to be a treat and eating a well-balanced diet (which was inculcated in us) would help us live healthy, long productive lives.

Now, however, fast food is not merely non-healthy, it is anti-healthy. In the United States, fast foods are replete with hormones (which are so prevalent now that they are found even in the drinking water), antibiotics and the extremely-scary GMO. However, we may never truly know whether or how much GMO is in fast food because the political rulers prefer to keep its citizenry in the dark, but there is certainly a perception that it is more than desired. Fortunately, most intelligent countries refuse to import food from the U.S. because of its contamination with GMO.

But what of the countries themselves? A cursory glance through Google yields an article from DNA India which indicates that Indian farmers will soon produce GMO foods, and implies that China and Canada have already done so.

We hope and pray that an enforcement (as alluded to in the beginning) will not arise. In that case, hormones, antibiotics and GMO are the straws that will break the camel’s (the fast food industry’s) back in the U.S. This will withdraw support in other parts of the world, and which will be expedited if those countries produce GMO crops, and will lead to the rise of the alternatives as mentioned in the “Is the Era of Fast Food Ending?” infographic.
