of your paper, along with the rough draft you completed last week, you are nearing the final stages of the writing process. Moving forward, continue using the feedback you have received thus far to improve the organization and clarity of your writing for the final draft. Good luck! While many parents think fast-food is harmless to a typical teen’s diet, it can cause weight problems as well as health problems that can follow them through adulthood. How would you like your teen to be like my cousin? I have a cousin who weights almost 500lbs and she is in her early twenties. Her parents found it easier to feed her fast-food for her meals because of their busy schedules while she was growing up. She has a lot of health issues now and fights to live every day. She has problems breathing, walking and has Type 2 diabetes. If she had been taught at a young age about

eating healthy, she would not have these issues today. The statistics show that teens that eat fast-food more than twice per week are over weight and end up with health issues. My cousin is a good example that this is true. Parents today do not watch what their children eat on a daily basis. Parents are working long hours or just in a rush to get teen’s to soccer practice or gymnastics. The fast way to feed their family and make their schedules is to stop at a fast-food restaurant on the way. The children eat in the car while the parent is eating and driving them where they need to be. This lifestyle is part of the problem. When teens are use to this they tend to snack on unhealthy food as well. Parents tend to purchase unhealthy snacks that are fast and available. When teens go to the cabinet for a snack it is not fruit and vegetables that they see. It is snack cakes, and candy. Teens that grow up from childhood eating this way will continue as teens and young adults. It is said that children with two working parents eat fast-food two to three days a week compared to a child who has only one parent working. This is why teens with two working parents are more at risk to become obese.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
