Here in Korea, (of coures I'm South Korean!) People tends to eat a lot of fast foods. Most of the people eat fast foods even they know it's not good for our health. But my family don't eat it too much, because we know it is harmful for our health. I've been teached that fast foods are very harmful for us, that can cause cancer and heart disease. Also, one hamburger include about 450 calories which can make us an obese people. And we eat burgers with french fries, sodas, chicken nuggets, ice cream, or even pizza. Can you imagine the result of this situation? Yeah, of course, you will probably get diabetes or hypertension. I want to be a healthy, muscular man. I do NEVER want to die 'cause of the little salty burger combos. How about you? D'ye agree with me? I think I eat these junk foods about once two monthes. But I eat breads and pasta (anythingelse which are made from wheat) almost every day, so I think it's not good for my health too. I'll try to eat only the healthy foods just like my country's traditional foods such as Bap, Kimchi, Bulgogi and Duenjang Jjigae. Also, I'll try to eat less Ddeobokki than usual. i'm looking foward to see my perfect health!

Here in Denmark we hate this thing called “fast food”. We cook EVERYTHING in several days just to get the right taste. We are very picky about not eat too fast. People call us super Marino’s if we eat too fast. So remember folks/homies/friends, that if you eat, then you like get it

Is it necessary to write 4th paragraph in our essay ? Which means contrasting opposing views?

Hi Madhu,

 

Well, it might depend exactly what the instructions are, but yes, it's a good idea to balance your essay by discussing the opposing view. This is because it shows that you have considered all aspects of the situation.

 

Hope that helps!

Fast food is much popular here, in Pakistan. I guess it cause much health problems and should be avoided. It should not be eaten often. But on special occasions only, if one likes them much. :P
