Somewhat. Most fast foods that also offer healthy options are actually showing profits. So if they all went this route it would then be totally on the people whether they eat healthy or not.

Very responsible, they should not be serving crap 'food'. Just because you are able to eat at fast food restaurants, doesn't mean you should. Easier said than done for some, I know.

Physicians and nutritionists vilified fats of all kinds in the 1980s and 1990s....And when Americans reduced their fat consumption, many replaced it with foods rich in carbohydrates and added sugars, which contributed enormously to America's epidemic rates of obesity and Type 2 diabetes....

"You can't just tell Americans to eat less saturated fat," said...a professor of nutrition and chemistry at Cornell University. "We not only have to tell them what to reduce, but we have to tell them what to substitute it with that won't worsen their health. You don't want to substitute one poison for another."
