A young filmmaker has published his first documentary, exploring the impact of fast food on young people.

Daniel Acheampong, who grew up in Wembley, is now at the University of Bedfordshire studying broadcast journalism and made the film as a part of his final year dissertation.

Assisted by fellow Broadcast Journalism course peers Daniel Husseini and James Reynolds – presenter and cameraman respectively – Daniel’s 16-minute documentary drew upon the expert views of psychologists and dieticians, in addition to the thoughts of Stanmore College students and an anonymous fast food addict.

The 21-year-old said: “It was interesting to hear what the fast food addict said to Daniel, as he had fallen into bad eating habits at university and was struggling to break out of them, which I’m sure millions of young people in Britain can relate to.

“I have the same problem of eating too much fast food, so since the documentary I’ve tried to cut down on the amount of junk food I eat and do more exercise."

The documentary, ‘Is fast food killing Britain’s youth?’, can be viewed below.

Daniel added: “Hopefully the documentary will make people sit up and take notice of the damage they could be doing to their bodies.”
