    continuously

    Talking about low quality fast food restaurants, which of the following sentences can be correct? And please tell me why it's not correct.

    1. Fast food is not healthy because they use the same oil continuously.
    2. Fast food is not healthy because they use the same oil constantly.
    3. Fast food is not healthy because they use the same oil (many times) in a row.

    I am not a teacher. I am currently studying basic English grammar.

    What about "repeatedly"?

    Or "... they use the same oil over and over again".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks a lot emsr2d2. It's (over and over) very good.
    But what about my sentences? Are they basically wrong or just not natural or common?
