Why do American Eat Junk Food?

Americans eat junk food for several reasons. The first being because it is quick and convenient. Why not pull into a McDonalds order at value meal and go home. You don’t have to cook and you just throw the paper in the garbage. The other reason is because the media has made junk food to seem as if there is nothing wrong with it, such as extra calories and lack of nutrition, so we jump up purchase it and pack on the pounds
