About 85 million Americans chomp on fast food on any given day according to a new study

Study 1 in 3 U.S. adults eat fast food each day

According to the findings, the more money someone had, the more they were likely to eat fast food.

According to a new report from the CDC, about 85 million Americans eat fast food on any given day with men eating more of it overall than women.

It's the first federal study to look at how often adults eat fast food.

Breaking down the statistics even further, Fryer's team found that black consumers were more likely to have eaten fast food on a given day than white consumers (42 percent compared to 38 percent, respectively). The team also noticed a difference between men and women: 37.9 percent of men consumed fast food but only 35.4 percent of women did. These numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are based on a survey of about 10,000 adults over four years.

The percentage of adults who said they consumed fast food rose with family income level, according to the report. Among men and women who consumed fast food, a higher percentage of men ate it for lunch, while a higher percentage of women ate it as a snack. Roughly 35 percent of Hispanic consumers and 31 percent of Asian-American consumers said they had eaten fast food the prior day.

The mainstays of take-outs - processed meat, sweetened bread, fried food and fatty sauces - are linked to chronic health conditions such as diabetes and heart failure, the number one killer in the world. Among middle-income families (whose income was between 130 percent and 350 percent of the poverty line), 36.4 percent ate fast food on a typical day.

At least 259 people died taking selfies from 2011-17
The research showed that three times as many men as women die while taking selfies , largely due to engaging in risky behavior. The most common drowning incidents included photographers being washed away by waves, and the capsizing of boats while rowing.

Still, the CDC said that fast food's ubiquity and price can make it an attractive option for some people.

All in all, the report's findings are what most experts would expect and mirror fast food consumption patterns found among children, said Jennifer Harris, an associate professor in allied health sciences at the University of CT and director of marketing initiatives at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, who was not involved in the new CDC report. The survey was conducted in 2016.

"We do know that fast food advertising has gone up during that time by pretty large amounts".

"These findings remind us that fast food companies have figured out a way to conveniently fit into our daily routine, despite their [products'] negative health implications", Boehmer said.

A new study has revealed something that shouldn't come as a shock to too many people - Americans love their fast food.

"It is amusing, when we see news clips of a shark swimming near a beach, it scares us into not going near that beach". "It takes time and some organization".
