Vegetables are not making teenagers fat... Fast food is. However, I don't believe that fast food is entirely RESPONSIBLE for teenage obesity. Their parents are really to blame. Moreover, fast food does need to take some of the blame because teenagers are becoming obese because of their fast food intake.
Teenagers and their parents are responsible for teenage obesity, not the fast food. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Cars don't speed, drivers speed. We have to start taking a responsibility for ourselves in this country and not keep trying to find someone else to blame. I would argue there is more of a responsibility of the gaming and technology industry rather than fast foods for our obesity problem, causing us to be a more sedentary society. We need to just eat less and be more active, and this will improve.
Most parents are in charge of monitoring what their teen eats. I am thinking, maybe some parents should make a list of fast food resaurants that their teen is allowed to go to, and then if the teen goes to a restaurant not parent-approved, then the teen may not go to the restaurant s/he would like to.
Fast food is not responsible for teenage obesity. Having the ability to get food and actually eating food is different things. Even if we shut down the fast food restraunts the people who want to eat food and have a lot of if will still be able to do so from home.
No, poor eating habits are responsible for teenage obesity. Yes, fast food is very accessible--and delicious. But people must learn to eat it in moderation, and to make healthy meal choices, even when at a fast food restaurant. Teenagers have to be taught the importance of eating well and implementing portion control. When teens simply eat whatever they want as often as they want, this can lead to a number of health problems, including obesity.

Although a lot of fast food is not as healthy as home-cooked food, it cannot be blamed for teenage obesity. A person is responsible for his/her own actions. So, the blame for teenage obesity mainly lies with the teen and their caregivers. Sometimes there are medical reasons for obesity, but obesity from eating can be avoided and controlled by healthy eating knowledge and discipline.
No, I don't think that fast food restaurants are responsible for teenage obesity. Kids eat what they like, so they turn to fast food. I don't think they should blame the restaurants, or even the kids. It's just the way it is. Food is good, so the kids turn to it for comfort.
