Some people say that fast food is not that dangerous, whereas others say that it is better not to eat it at all.

I think that fast-food is not very bad for health if it is not eaten often. First of all, I believe that if a person has a choice between staying hungry or eating fast food they should choose eating fast food, since to starve is more dangerous than to eat low quality food. Second, not all fast food is dangerous. One can always find something like salads or other things that are not fried or too spicy. Poeple can also visit some fast food cafes where they do not use those things that are considered unhealthy like mayonnaise, palm oil and E-preservatives.

Other people say that if a person eats fast-food they will end up in a hospital. One should see the film "Supersize Me" where a person lived and ate in a McDonald’s for 30 days and how his health got worse every day.

I do not agree with this opinion. One should always remember that everything in this world has its purpose. Fast-food is not meant for daily consumption. If a person eats it once a month nothing bad will happen.

In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight fast food is unhealthy but in actual fact it is not that harmful to one's health and it saves a lot of time. Thus, I prefer to be flexible and support the idea that fast food is a good option for busy working people.
