Does Fast Food Affect Academic Performance?

I am no defender of the consumption of junk food. I would be the first to point out that a nutrition free meal choice, no matter where it is consumed, lacks the nutrients a growing brain and body need to function. I am also an advocate of making better choices even at a quick serve restaurant. But to minimize the reasons for poorer performance in school down to one factor is simplistic.
