Insurance Companies Invest in Fast Food Chains

Interestingly, though not surprising, health and life insurance companies invest billions in the fast-food industry. After analyzing insurance companies’ holdings in the fast-food industry researchers from Harvard University’s Cambridge Health Alliance found that insurers own $1.88 billion dollars worth of stocks in McDonald’s, Jack in the Box, Wendy’s/Arby’s, Yum! Brands (owner of KFC and Pizza Hut), and Burger King. To read the full article please search online for Insurance Invest Billions in Fast Food

Sadly, this is another case of interests vs. ethics where interests and profit trump ethics. Therefore, it is the consumer who has the responsibility and the power to take care of his/her health by making wise decisions such as the transition to a well-balanced plant-based diet, which is lower or void of fast food (laden with animal products, cholesterol and saturated fat).
