The best renovation

Dear Editor

Re: McDonald’s renovation 

The best renovation for this franchise is its removal from the landscape and the culture and vernacular of food in Samoa!

In a country where diet-related diseases are doing irreversible harm to our people, this is bad news. 

You only need to look at our American Samoan family to see the effects of a concentrated and entrenched fast food culture, including more than one McDonalds outlet- they are dying of heart disease, bowel cancer, diabetes, obesity etc. 

Paradise is better off without the spread of this franchise.
