(No you can't sue)
In 2004, the US House of Representatives passed a bill banning lawsuits directed at fast food restaurants for making food that was "too fattening" or "the reason for obesity." The bill came about when two teenage girls, both of which were GROSSLY overweight had joined together to sue McDonalds. Needless to say, their case was dropped and fast food was free to make thousand calorie burgers and oversized milkshakes.
Now, I side with the House of Reps on this one. There is no way in hell that you should be able to sue over getting fat, ESPECIALLY when everyone tells you that eating fast food WILL get you fat. Even the fast food industry recognizes and states that their food "Isn't for daily consumption."
Their argument is a legitimate one. For instance, in a Sausage McMuffin, which is only 114 grams (the weight of a newton, or an apple), and has 390 calories, 200 of which from FAT! Now... why would you need close to 400 calories for a small sandwich is beyond me. Unless your a lumberjack with a stapled stomach.
Now, on to you guys. What do you guys think of the law? Is it right to ban lawsuits on fast food, or should they be responsible for their food? Write your comments!
