FAST FOOD SYSTEM HEALTH EFFECTS 2 Fast Food System Health Effects Binkley, J. K., (2006). "The Effect of Demographic, Economic, and Nutrition Factors on the Frequency of Food Away from Home."

The article examines the adverse health effects such as the current trend in increasing cases of obesity in the United States critically. The effects as discussed by the author arise from the changing consumptions pattern. The American are now consuming foods that have been grown in other places, referred to as Food Away From Home (FAFH). They are prepared by the fast foods and table services restaurants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
