Recent food and habits lead to different health challenges and obesity. The food has been more appealing, more varieties are available but the food sold may be unhygienic. Many of the food eaten are altered with pesticides. Kathleen McAfee (McAfee, 2003) is not disappointed as regards the reduction in genetically altered food. She insisted that altered crops are meant for pest infestation not food. The world is experiencing a complete phenomenon called ‘the McDonalization of Society’ based on socialist George Ritzer.
Ritzer defines it as a method in which the rules of fast food restaurants are taking over the society (Ritzer, reprinted, 1993:1). People go with the thought of saving time and money but the restaurants are under the attack and making profit from it. Such has led to high rate of obesity and health issues which puts our bodies at high risk.

Our way of life, beliefs and values are been destroyed by globalization. Goods and concepts are being abused and the effects have led to deep questions. Globalization is very difficult and doesn’t make it possible to be grouped. It has made the world evolve however good or bad, but it should be dealt with carefully.
