False advertising is also another unpleasant practice that fast food companies use to lure in costumers. Some of these practices include no warning labels on advertisements like there are on dangerous things like tobacco and confusing labels on food served that lead customers into eating more calories than intended. David Zinczenko advocates that it is some of the fast food companies fault for the decline in America’s general health. At the end, David chooses not to complain about the legalities, but instead encourages us to let the justice system do its work. In the article David Zinczenko discusses “Shouldn't we know better than to eat two meals a day in fast-food restaurants” we the people of America should know by now that it is
What do most people imagine when they hear the word “obese”? Some may simply picture it as being chubby or fat. However, being obese actually means being so overweight that it can endanger one’s health. In fact, obesity was declared an epidemic for the past decade. While some argued that it is the fault of food industries, and for some, fault of consumers, it can easily be resolved with two words: self-responsibility.
Corporations make us fat Many people claim that it is personal responsibility of what you eat, however fast food corporations and their marketing strategies make it almost impossible to say no. From childhood we are conditioned to grab a large combo meal on our way home instead of going to the grocery store then cooking it ourselves. The ease, convenience, and the cheap prices make it all too easy for consumers. Corporations are to blame for America’s obesity problems because of their lack of nutritional information available to consumers, their lack of alternatives, and their brand recognition and advertisements addicting us from childhood. There is no calorie information posted in any fast food restaurant.
Enc. 1101 Casual Analysis on Obesity in America Obesity in America is an ongoing concern that is relevant to everyone. “Obesity’s prevalence has risen steadily in both adults and children for the past several decades and is recognized as a serious, unremitting public health concern by virtually every major body concerned with public health including the National Institutes of Health, the United States Department of Agriculture, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization” (Allison, Cope). Americans are becoming more obese due to laziness and lack of exercise. Not only are Americans lacking to stay fit, they tend to over eat as opposed to watching their dieting and serving sizes.
Is the recession making us fat? It’s no secret that Americans, as a whole, are fatter than ever before. Obesity transcends all ages, cultures, and religions. While some question the role that the current economic recession pays in this epidemic (Campbell, 2009), the evidence of this connection is clear. The side effects of hard economic times, increased poverty, stress, and lack of free time as people juggle second and third jobs to make ends meet, push Americans toward the cheapest and quickest meals.
Lameec Gerald We live in a time where overweight and obesity is the 2nd most cause of preventable deaths in America. (“The Most Preventable Causes of Death in the U.S”) The way to prevent these deaths are exercising and eating healthy . However Approximately 1 out of 2 Americans are low income or poor according to the census bureau. ( WASHINGTON AP) Food prices are continuously rising, especially healthy food. How can the average American be healthy when they can't afford healthy food and if they can how do they what is healthy .
He is not alone in his struggle with weight. A major public health issue in America is the high rate of obesity. Obesity is not just a personal trouble. Around 1/3 of American adults are overweight (Adult Obesity Facts). With that high percentage, obesity is a public issue.
They are making comments such as, "The problem of obesity is so staggering, so out of control, that we have to do something." There is something this person can do to fix this problem of obesity. This person can stop blaming the restaurants, stop eating at the restaurants, start making healthy decisions, and exercise. If not, then this person can keep making the decision of eating there and getting fat, but not sue the restaurant because this is a decision he has made. Fast food restaurants dont force the clients to buy and eat there.
Americans are becoming comfortable with fast food and unhealthy choices. They have become too lazy to work off their bad choices in food so the effects keep adding up inside their body causing obesity. Obesity is the condition of being very fat or overweight. This is caused by the over consumption of food by many people. Most of us don’t have what we call, portion control, so we eat until we feel full causing our stomach to expand.
So since they have low income they only thing they can do is go buy fast food. Arken and Houston also state more causes of obesity in the inner-city, “Obesity is determined by many factors (e.g inactivity, high-fat diet cultural preference)”(2).The culture the parents put their child in is basically by forced because of their living situation. With the low income it’s hard for the African American people to take their child to get health insurance, so they can’t receive advice from the medical establishment on how to prevent obesity. In, “Facing Up to Childhood Obesity” Phillips states the effects of inactivity in Great Britain. Arken and Houston do the same in Obesity in Inner-City African
