1. Explain the ethical dilemma and explain why it is a dilemma. Our government needs to do something to turn the growing wave of obesity in our country but is taxing unhealthy foods the answer? Despite no clear evidence of a link between obesity and eating unhealthy food there is a movement to tax what we put in our mouths. However, does eating unhealthy food cause obesity or does obesity cause one to eat unhealthy food (Marlow, 2013)?
This perception through advertising works to encourage more demand for the product resulting in more money for Company. In this study intended to test whether “movie tie-in premiums accompanying unhealthy fast food meals the influenced children’s meal preferences and their perceptions of these meals,” (Dixon and et. al. 2017). Even though we know that the true characteristics of the product is not good for us, the perception of a product can be impressionable.
I believe that the government could try and limit the fast food places, to decrease obesity and diabetes levels. In order to accomplish that we have to limit the amount of fast food restaurants we have in a city, if it's more farther away people won’t go as often. I believe this an efficient way to increase people’s food options into choosing and eating healthier food. The story “Tax it, and Subsidize Vegetables”, written by Mark Bittman, states his opinion that, industries should be taxing unhealthy foods such as; sodas, French fries and doughnuts. Bittman supports his claim by sourcing statistics of how much “soda” a American consumes annually.
Through this campaign, Coca Cola is saying two things: they are fighting against obesity meaning they are socially implicated which is valued by consumers and so create a good image for them; then, Coca Cola is not responsible of obesity because they sell no calorie beverages and so in fact the consumers are the ones responsible of choosing such beverages. Moreover, they want to avoid possible losses. By clearing its responsibilities and having a good image, fewer lobbies would be willing to tax their beverages or to force population to drink less sweetened beverages. Finally, it’s a way of attracting new consumers, the ones who want to loose weights. 4.
Analysis Paper on Food, Inc. Food Inc by Robert Kenner(2008) was the documentary that I choose to watch for my analysis paper, its message was that we as a nation should eat organic, locally grown, home made, healthy foods. In more words Kenner was trying to persuade Americans to eat healthy and realize the personal health risks, environmental risks, and extremely harmful affects of not eating locally grown, home made foods. Kenner discussed animal abuse, modified foods, deaths from bacteria in food that’s being sold nation wide, and so mainly other topics. With so many points being throw around it was a little hard to stay focused, but getting my attention and persuading me was fairly simple because of Kenner’s’ emotional appeals though out the film. All emotional appeals were used in the documentary, Pathos was most and best used fallowed by Ethos then logos.
Due to all these negative publicity, McDonald’s needed to rescue their reputation. Hence, it launched a public relations campaign to change the predominant perception that McDonald’s food is inherently unhealthy. The McDonald’s Nutrition Network (MNN) was created to award local organizations with seed money to fund projects or programs that promote nutritional consciousness. McDonald’s also invited dieticians to attend local meet-ups to provide more information of nutrition value of McDonald’s food. McDonald’s was largely successful with the Nutrition Network, winning publicity awards and having more positive social media impressions.
It is obvious that when people pay money for something they buy, they want to know what exactly things are (such as nutrition percentage or calories content). The foods we eat are particularly related to people’s health. Second, genetically modified food can unexpectedly transform some components into different ones and cause allergies in some people. To illustrate, genes that were changed in genetically modified foods may contain strange substances that produce allergic reactions for purchasers. For example, tomatoes are injected with fish gene to make a new product with better quality because the components in fish can protect fruit from freezing.
Discuss the merits of the law proposed by france that would require fast-food companies either to add a health message to commercials or pay 1.5 percent tax on their ad budget, propose a strategy and defend your recommendation? I think this strategy gave the food marketers the freedom to choose between paying or advertising about healthy foods, in my opinion I think the best strategy is to focus on adding healthy massages , as we all know how French people really care about their health, it will not cause anxiety, and the best strategy is to focus on product differentiation such as whole wheat bread, grilled chicken, corn made bread……etc 3 If there is no evidence that obesity rates fall in those countries that ban food advertising to children, why bother? According to all scenario if there is no evidence for proving that fatness rates fall in those countries that ban food advertisement children, still should concentrate on food advertisement, because obesity rate is fall or not, There is no decrease in the percentage of obese children in developing countries but there is no indication of increase in the number of obese
There are two reasons for this, first reason is the most obvious one, is to learn how to stop it. The second reason is because we want to cure it and prevent it from happening again. In order for us to lead a healthy lifestyle for us and the kids that are the future generations of this country. I will relate and talk about the effects that fast food chain restaurants have on families, especially when they don't have time to cook healthy meals.

In addition to trying to create a healthier America, Mrs. Obama is reaching out to communities and youth in an attempt to change America’s bad eating habits for a better future. The essay calls for everyone to understand that obesity will not go away overnight. Furthermore, the author implores that people who are against children helping themselves to unhealthy food should try and look deeper for the answer to this epidemic of overweight
