She admits that the job of changing America's bad eating habits will be a big task to handle. There would be tremendous push back from food corporations, conservative politicians such as Palin and the American people themselves. She feels the best way to get people eating right is to make it seem like a very appealing choice instead of enforcing laws(404). Birkenstein, Cathy, and Russel K. Durst.

In addition, scientists have also discovered that by taking certain food and removing their important values and adding in so-called nutrients that can supposedly benefit us Americans health wise. This is where nutritionism took over. Nutritionism can be simply considered “as an ideology that assumes that it is the scientifically identified nutrients in foods that determine their value in the diet” (Klotter 2). In addition, “nutritionism looks at food as simply a collection of nutrients that can be redesigned to improve health” (Karnasiewicz 3). But is this true?
Never have I seen a bag of spinach or a head of broccoli that was advertised as “buy one get one free.” This is due to the fact that if all of a sudden healthy foods were as cheap as unhealthy foods, people would “vote” differently. Farmers would start having to produce more healthy foods, for which they are not subsidized, advertisements for those “fun foods” would need to change to appeal those healthy eaters, and nutritionism would prove that food in its natural form is what is needed to acquire optimal
Taste Test: Splenda vs. Sugar Taste Test: Splenda vs. Sugar Introduction Americans are more health conscience now than they were decades ago which is why they are completely dedicated to finding ways to consistently reducing the caloric and sugar intake in their diets. As a result, many are focusing on the use of artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes. Because of this health conscience era, the use of Splenda, in particular is used in just about every food, drink, candy etc. Splenda, along with other artificial sugar product, is popular because it does not add any calories, but what makes Splenda stand apart from other sugar substitutes is its claim that it is made from sugar and taste exactly like sugar. Although widely accepted, there are those that prefers the use and taste of nothing but regular sugar because they do not like the tast of the artificial sugars on the market, however, although Splenda’s claim of being made from sugar and taste exactly like sugar, there are those that swear that they could taste the difference between the two.
However, weight loss surgery is not a quick fix. It does require patients to maintain their weight loss by modifying diet and exercise. While there is no magical cure for obesity in the United States, there are an increasing number of options available. The creators of the fad diets and various weight loss programs all promise success. (Mayo Clinic, 2012) One program always promises to be better than the rest but one thing all these so-called experts agree on is that in order to lose weight; we must burn more calories than we take in.
Joshua Williams 3 30 2015 BA384- Business Ethics Case Study Pepsi Co. 1- How does Pepsi Co. balance those stakeholders such as consumers and shareholders interested in good tasting products and financial performance with special- interest groups and regulators that are more concerned about nutrition? The industry in which Pepsi Co. is, is very difficult to deliver food items or beverages that healthy for the consumers.

It’s an opportunity to influence the market’s perception of the products (On the mark, 2012). The nearest competitor to Nutri Coke are the diet supplements such as Slimfast or Nutrifast that is used for weight loss and provides protein and meal replacement.

This drink provides all the nutrients and vitamins that adults are lacking in regards to missing meals. This drink has been tested and proven to provide the essentials of a meal.
In his article,” In defense of food “: Michael Pollen established “what is food” and why do American’s eat nonfood in such large quantities?” Definitely, I’m agree about food labels do provide enough information for consumers to make an informed choice about what to feed their bodies. However consumers do not pay attention of the food labels because they do not really know about it as long it’s delicious. Surely, most food provides food labels because it is a

Professor Ian Campbell from Australia's Peter MacCallum Cancer Center says that no scientific evidence showing that GM food is harmful to people's health has been presented to date. (Campbell p.4) It illustrates that GM foods are still not unsafe to people. "As long as the GM food comes out in the markets, it means that it has been proved they won’t hurt people’s health," Yunbo Luo states," and GM foods will be digested in our stomachs without changing people’s own genes at all, which is just like other traditional foods." I am for him and some of my classmates as well. We have learned that modern biological technology in high school and got to know the safety of GM foods.
