Think Differently Forum: In Defense of Fast Food with Lisa Tillinger Johansen
Start Date: 3/28/2013Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 3/28/2013End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description
We tend to blame the issue of obesity on the consumption of fast food, but fast food is not the problem. Fast food has been the scapegoat of a lot of social issues for Americans. Lisa Tillinger Johansen makes the case that the fast food industry is actually a positive force in soicety. Her book, "Fast Food Vindiction", explores how easily fast food can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle. She explains that it is possible to eat healthy wherever you are. As a former fast food insider, Lisa Tillinger Johansen makes a strong case that fast food is not as bad for you as many of us think. Far from a blight on society, the fast food industry has distinguished itself by providing a product that meets high standards of quality and safety, often healthier than meals served at home and in sit-down restaurants.
