A nice article, Alyssa, but perhaps you could have elaborated more on the perils of junk food: hypertension, sugar high-then-crash, total lack of essential micronutrients leading to all kinds of deficiency diseases, etc. Anyone aspiring to even modest levels of health should avoid McSlop and Kentucky Fried Cancer and Diabetes-Cola entirely, along with all other junk and processed foods. These things are quite literally unfit for human consumption.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
