When I saw what today's holiday was, I had an instant image of carnival food across the country at every county fair all summer long. Fried food. Fattening food. More common though, would be the drive-thru fast food most American families consume on a regular basis. Also known as the SAD diet.
Fast food has become a major part of the American diet, and a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals just how many adults eat it.
Between 2013 and 2016, about 37 percent of U.S. adults consumed fast food on any given day, according to the data brief published Wednesday by the National Center for Health Statistics. "On any given day in the United States, an estimated 36.6 percent or approximately 84.8 million adults consume fast food," said Cheryl Fryar, first author of the report and a health statistician at the CDC.
"We focused on fast food for this report because fast food has played an important role in the American diet in recent decades," she said. "Fast food has been associated with poor diet and increased risk of obesity."
Fast foods tend to be high in calories, fat, salt and sugar, which -- when consumed in excess -- can be associated with obesity, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, among other health risks." abcactionnews.com
