Junk food is unhealthy

Junk food is highly unhealthy and can transform fit, healthy human beings into obese, lazy people. Is this what we want Earth to become for the future generations? I should think not. Eating too much junk food can cause your life to be shortened, and this is terrible. This is why I believe that junk food should be banned.

No because...

Junk food isn't that bad. Healthy food can be just as bad sometimes. And when people try to change it, it just doesn't work. For instance, my school's canteen had a food change to make the food healthier. One day they cooked "healthy" fish and chips, and the people who spent $5 on it, got no chips and a tiny half-frozen piece of fish. This could happen to any other canteen, and I strongly advise against it happening, as it will turn out not to work.

Banning

To ban junk food would be a complete failure. It would also leave people feeling that their freedom of choice was taken. A better way to handle junk food is to make laws more strict about ingredient labels. Perhaps require foods with little nutritional value to have their nutrition facts be bolder and in a bright colour.

Economy

Every moving Junk Food franchise accumulates approximately $1 million a day.
There are over 500 such franchises all over Australia and USA.
Multinational companies like Lay's, Doritos, etc. also make in the millions and billions.
So imagine the amount of money international money, that would be drawn in every month.
This kind of a cash flow is a necessity for big country economies to run.
Hence, we should no let fast food joints or Junk food producing companies should not be shut down.

What exactly is Junk Food? How does one define junk food? I heard a can of peas is consideered junk food while dry peas is not? Really? I takes time, to prepare dried peas, if one still has their utilities still in tact, no shut off because they can not afford the cost.
