Many countries are trying to do something to make their children’s life healthier by promoting healthy food and diets campaigns. Obesity is a worldwide disaster that ruins lives. Obesity is being fat or overweight and that affects their lives in negative ways. The primary reasons of obesity are actually parents; they’re the ones who decide what type of food their child eats and they specify the amount of food the child gets. However, the studies of the American academy of child and adolescent psychiatry showed that between 16 and 33 percent of children and adolescents are obese.
For example, the food marketing companies usually uses the attractive poster about fast food to get the attention of the kids. Moreover, the author also used some kind of emotional language such as he said that banning the junk food is “misguided and ineffective”.He also tried to give more some reasons to demonstrate that food marketing is not a serious matter of childhood obesity. He said the young people prefer using the internet more than watching TV. In addition, the average number of ads also decreased from 18 in 1977 to 13 in 2003, but he was not right about it. In the
Blaming Fast Food Restaurants for Obesity Let’s face it; everyone loves a Whopper every now and then. Yet we are all aware that one too many can bring on dangerous and life-threatening results. Obesity is a growing problem in the United States and more and more children are being affected. But do uneducated families have the right to put the blame on fast food restaurants for their health issues they could have easily prevented? I believe that we are taking it too far by blaming fast food restaurants for obesity and that it is an individual’s responsibility to take the blame.
In his article “Don't Blame the Eater” David Zinczenko has pointed out that all the fast food industries are the one responsible for making the children's in America fat and unhealthy. Zinczenko believes that the fast food centers aren't providing any kind of warnings about the effects and extra calories that a fast food can cause, instead they are eager to supply their so called “cheap and tasty fast food”. When he was young he had no choice except for eating at fast food centers as his mother was busy earning money to pay the bills because of which he ended up overweight. According to my view, I believe that it isn't the fast food industries who are to be blamed, it is the parents. Eventhough nowadays all the parents have to work long hours to earn their living but still they shouldn't forget their responsibility towards their children.
Cooper emphasizes that the diets choices presented to children is extremely unhealthy and stresses that if parents continue to ignore the dangerous health-issues, it may affect the child’s well-being for life. Through several documentary techniques such as: anecdotal evidence, expert accounts/interviews and repetition of key words, Cooper follows the three families on their journey back on the nutritional track and continuously highlights that the intake of fast food meals are unhealthy for growing children . However, under closer examination and analysis of the documentary, it can be seen that many factors were silenced - especially the fast food companies - through the art of careful editing, which is proof that documentaries cannot be relied on to provide the whole truth. Cooper uses frightening and somewhat bizarre anecdotal evidence show sympathy and pity towards the parents, and also how vulnerable and careless parents are in their attempts to provide for the child’s needs and wants. There's 19-month-old Michael for example, who contracted meningitis as a baby.
Being monitored by three physicians; a general practitioner, a cardiologist, and a gastroenterologist, Spurlock kept track of how his health was being harmed each and every day to prove his point that McDonald’s, as well as every fast food restaurant, isn’t the best choice of nutritional food. The review is for the Los Angeles Times to consider publishing as one of its reviews of the film. The Problem: McDonald’s is a revenue making giant that sells fast food meals without much regard to the effects it will have on the health of society. One of the primary reasons people are obese today in the United States is because of fast food consumption. It is after all is the easiest and fastest way to get full when one is in a rush, especially with it being cheap and conveniently available almost at every corner of any major street in Los Angeles and every other city in the world today for that matter.
Quick is the appropriate word to use for fad diet, who wants to change their entire lifestyle when they can lose over ten pounds in one week? We become so obsess with losing weight we begin to destroy our bodies by self- starvation. Weight loss in the content of medicine, healthy eating, and physical fitness results in one common thing a new lifestyle whether you use a fad diet or a nutritional diet. Although we look at fad diets as our golden tickets to our “Beyoncé” bodies there are some disadvantages to doing a crash diet. These disadvantages can range from statistics, results, and meal plans.
Supersize me Obesity is a problem that is increasing in the industrialized world; it is not just about eating less and perform more exercise, but the consumption of nutritious foods that are not compromised by modern farming methods and manufacturing processes. American documentary film Super Size Me, is about how a young man who wants to do an experiment to find out what will happen if you eat for a whole month, every day, fast food nutrition. Morgan Spurlock recorded experience of eating at McDonald's food three times a day for 30 days. This experiment allows us to thoroughly investigate the effects of physical, mental and emotional excessive consumption of fast food nutrition. After a few week using food from giant McDonald's three times a day Spurlock feels bad and is getting weigh very quickly.
America needs to stop advertising such unhealthy eating. How often do you hear of a ninety-nine cent special on a salad? Americans like there food fast and don't care to realize the effects that fast foods have on there bodies. Since, the media has such a strong influence on Americans. I believe that if healthy food is more advertised it will be eaten more.
Daniel Weintraub, in his article, "The battle against fast food begins in the home", states that parents are to blame for childhood obesity. The essence of Weintraub's argument is that it is the parents responsibility not the government, nor are the fast food companies bound to teach kids how to eat healthy and how to say active. He also mentioned results of statistics made on social economic status and gender, which shows that more kids are overweight due to fast food restaurants, supersizing and lack of exercise. Weintraub refutes these findings by emphasizing how parents are responsible for what their kids eat. As a result, his own recommendations include: limiting the consumption of sodas, junk food as well as avoiding a sedentary lifestyle.
