    • I wonder how much the cost of healthier food plays into the equation. The reason I am curious about this is because I want to know if it is the cost of the food that deters chains from selling healthier food options or if the healthier food options simply do not sell very much.

    • Hi Skylar!

      Its promising that popular fast food chains are trying to integrate “healthier” options, but did you know that these items can be higher in calories than a burger or Chicken McNuggets? I researched a similar topic recently, and realized that these “healthy” foods are really quite misleading. If your interested, you should read The Omnivore’s Dilemma, it was really helpful and opened my eyes to what many of us are really eating.

    • Hello Skylar,
      I find it interesting that McDonald’s, as well as other popular fast food places are starting to make healthier options. I have to agree with you though, on how do we know if they are truly making things all that much healthier. I personally almost never go to a fast food restaurant, as I always feel gross after eating at them. I really hope they truly start to make healthier options because I would definitely go to them for fast healthy food.

    • I definitely do agree with you on how it is questionable on how healthy fast food restaurants are really becoming but hopefully in the future a wider variety of actually healthy options will be available.

  • I truly can’t imagine the mental consequences and struggles that come along with adoption, and I don’t think anyone can truly understand unless they are in that place, o its very interesting to read the research they’ve found on it. I’m curious to learn more!

  • Grace, its so interesting to read and recognize what little I know about veganism. I am very curious to see what the research say about whether it is truly healthy or not.

  • Again this is something I feel people overlook constantly and is never really addressed so reading and leaning more about the effects of prison on mental health. I am definitely interested in seeing more.

  • Katie this was a great topic idea being that most people definitely don’t know the importance of running shoes and the affects on all body mechanics. This was a very interesting read, and I’m intrigued to see more!
