In today’s society, we are encouraged throughout the media through use of television, novels, and advertisement that we should have an ideal body and have a healthy lifestyle. Although, we see fast food places lowering the prices of the unhealthy food in order to encourage us to pick the unhealthy food over the healthy food we see in grocery stores. By fast food prices being lower, capitalism is encouraging us to spend money on fast food places that are easy to access, affordable, and adding to our economy. The culture of food in everyday society wants us to spend money on fast food since it is easily accessible for our busy everyday lives and although we are supposed to have an ideal body, they want us to spend our money on fast food places to help our economy.
