Schlosser and Wilson explain,

“If you took the 13 billion hamburgers that Americans eat every year and put
them in a straight line, they could circle around the earth more than thirty-two times.”

Means to say that this is just the hamburgers Americans eat in a year. So in order to be healthy,
avoid all these junk foods or use them less as much as you can.
