Quotes I wrote this in seventh grade, and recently edited it. Quotes
Fast food may taste good to some people, but the truth is, it is terrible for your health. More and more people are eating fast food, which is doing bad things to their health. Some people live in a fast food fantasy, eating it every day, and believing that it is fast, convenient, and inexpensive.
