Welcome to our website, we are
a group of students from Singapore and Lithuania taking part in Thinkquest.
Our topic is one which we feel is one of utmost concern – the
innocent looking meal of a burger with fries, and maybe a soft drink,
or rather, fast food in general.
At first glance, it may look like a nice lunch that most people would
not mind eating, it’s fast, convenient, and it tastes good.
These people are totally right, but they are also missing out on some
For one, this food has a huge content of Trans-fats, which are known
for causing diabetes, obesity, and cardiac problems. Also, their drinks
have a large sugar content, which increases the risk of diabetes and
has been theorized to cause hyperactivity.
In our opinion, it is a critical issue in today’s world, and
deserves to be among the list of pressing concerns. We have thus included
a list of suggestions and alternatives for a healthier lifestyle.
Our website has been geared towards educating today’s youth
(9-16) of the negative effects of fast food, but for those who are
interested, we have also included a small “advanced” section
in each article.
We hope our website can help spread the word and expose the facts
behind fast food, and hopefully have an impact on the reader.
You are what you eat.
