Love your Fast Food?
More than one-third of American adults eat fast food on any given day, despite warnings about its impact on health and obesity, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Wednesday. The rate is especially high for young adults and gradually drops with age.
