Healthy choices are always more expensive than bad choices. In “A Tax That Invests in Our Health” by Richard F. Daines, he remarks the reason that people prefer bad choice over healthy choice. He writes, Healthy choices are rising in price while the cost of bad choices falls. Low-fat milk costs more than soda. So grocery stores in poorer neighborhoods stock less milk and more soda, and the relentless advertising from the beverage industry and fast food joints makes sweet drinks an expected part of daily living.
As the nation’s, and probably the world’s, largest company, Walmart has revolutionized the way Americans shop. Walmart provides a one-stop shop where you can buy any item needed for the lowest price available. They have become an example to the industry on how to be a successful company. However, in order to obtain and maintain all of this success, Walmart had to change some of America’s business principals, which has not been beneficial for the country in the long run. Walmart’s low prices are a direct result of their outsourcing of jobs, which negatively affects the United States’ economy, even though may seem beneficial.

Consumers need to be aware of all the sweet 2 drinks we take in, and realize that we take a lot more in then what we think. As a parent we are told that Gatorade and sports drinks are good for our children, but if you look at the ingredients you will see that they are just as bad. Even the diet sodas are bad for you. People consume most of their calories in sodas and sweet drinks. We need to make these sugary drinks not so easy to buy.
Rogerian Essay – Final 05/02/2011 Audience Analysis Should the government be allowed to put tax on the sodas, and all the sweet beverages, such as ice tea, fruit juice and sports drinks? The question still stands today. The targeted audience in this issue not only includes the teenagers, but as well as adults. Many people feel that soda taxing is ineffective due to the fact that, if they are able to purchase, they surely will and diminish their thirst and enjoy their drink. This is not only unfair to those who drink sodas and sweet beverages, on regular basis, but it’s also unfair to the young adolescents who need to learn about the value of living a healthy lifestyle.
Coca-cola believed that as this segment aged, it would move on to healthier diet drinks and hence they needed to look into the “full-calorie” young segment.

Etzioni provides explicit evidence showing that most of these teenagers end up as school dropouts and the only place they can work in is the same fast food restaurants that they worked in when they were teenagers. Basically, his argument is that fast food industries such as McDonalds offer a wide field of employment for teenagers which is beneficial as it makes them self responsible.

Lowering the age also declined the access to of alcohol to minors, thus also not allowing for them to participate in underage drinking (Roleff 86).
