Make fast food illegal?

The LA City Council considers a ban on the development of new fast food restaurants in South Los Angeles. While other cities have banned “formula restaurants” to keep their streets pretty and character intact, the proposal is one of the first that cites residents’ health for its reason, according to the AP.

I unfortunately can’t counter this quote from industry:

Fast food “is the only industry that wants to be in South LA,” said association spokesman Andrew Casana. “Sit-down restaurants don’t want to go in. If they did, they’d be there. This moratorium isn’t going to help them relocate.”
