True or False: 90% of the world population eats junk food?

I say it's likely true, despite the mindless celebrity fluff you hear about.

What do you think?

90% of the world's population can't afford junk food or don't have access to it.

Bullshit.

Population EU: 500,000,000

Population US + Canada: 360,000,000

Japan: 125,000,000

That's about 1 billion people.

World population: 7.5 billion. So those people alone represent more than 10% of the world population. There are many many more countries where people can afford and have access to junk food.

Guess you need to define "junk food", but if you mean something like McDonalds, no way.

Hey loudmouth, shut the fuck up, right?

You said 90% can't afford or access junk food, I say that's not true. 90% is a huge exaggeration.

90% of the world's population doesn't eat junk food; to say so is a HUGE exaggeration.

I think a large number of the population has tried eating junk food at least once in there life time (Candy bars are cheap). 90% not sure about that

confuse in order to eat it you have to have access to it so what is it you mean when YOU say 90% of the WORLD'S population eats junk food??? Saying flippant things isn't facts. Its just saying flippant things. Damn the more I see the more I'm in the corner of the LMASA brigade. People really don't know the basic definitions of words that fly from their mouths or finger tips. It's the foundation of communication. 6.3 billion is 90% of 7 billion.

That's not true. Junk food is often very cheap. When I was in Kenya, alright that was years ago, but I remember you could get a portion of chips (fries) for as little as 20-30 cents. With a piece of chicken to go with it, you'd still eat for less than a dollar.
Don't ever lose your dreams.

I know I'm consuming too much of Jack n the Box's Vanilla Orange Hi-C. It's got vitamin C in it so it's healthy, right?

This is coming up fast.

Coke Zero or Cherry Coke on occasion.

I think we should rather stop wasting massive amounts of food. And stop being so dependent on coal and oil.

Honestly now I believe a high number of the worlds population has tried at least once in their life time junk food, not saying they live on it. Coke is everywhere. Cookies, Candies, Chips are cheap and with their packaging makes it easily can go anywhere in the world.

I don't know, seems to me I've heard that even if it's available in a lot of these countries especially due to people living there from other countries, the majority of the indigenous population still cannot afford to buy it therefore they live off what they can grow or hunt for themselves. But I don't have any proof of that so whatever.

Like I said tried at least once. Sure they pass a bottle of coke or chips around for everyone.

Maybe 90% of the world has had junk food in their mouths, maybe not, I don't think anyone has done a study on it, so it's a belief thing.

To do a real study you would have to test everybody on planet earth and that is not gonna happen. Coke is everywhere and that is a fact. My belief is that a large portion of the population has tried junk food at least once in their life time.
