We need to make these sugary drinks not so easy to buy. Everyday the soda companies come out with some new drink to suck us in to buying them and getting us hooked. Pepsi and coke are famous for this, but we still feel the need to try the drinks that come out. Even though most of us know that these drinks we consume are bad for us. In conclusion I believe having a tax that increases the prices on sugary drinks is a good place to start for the obesity epidemic.
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.
A solution to the Amex problem would be to temporarily shut down their company since they can’t handle being truthful to consumers based on their false advertising about the Blue Sky program. Temporarily shutting down the company would address the problem by making Amex realize what they are doing to consumers isn’t okay. The government has a federal agency called the Division of Advertising Practices that need to monitor advertisements more carefully because the government needs to stop these crimes immediately.The government should step up solving these crimes faster because Georgia Peanuts was selling salmonella-infested peanut butter to the public for MONTHS before the government did anything. Amex was scamming people for 9 YEARS before the government found

With the recent increase of overweight and obese Americans, a debate has surfaced over whether the government should tax sugary drinks. Taxing sugary drinks is the right step because it could change people’s choices behavior, it reduces the number of people who purchase these drinks, it could pay for health education and medical expenses, and it helps prevent obesity. Taxing sugary drinks could change people’s choices behavior. People need to change their life style and learn to live more healthily. Healthy choices are always more expensive than bad choices.
However it isn’t just parents who play an important role in influencing our food habits the media is also a key influence. TV and Magazines are a great contribution to the influence of eating habits especially when people want to eat healthy, but eating healthy doesn’t necessarily mean you are healthy; there is such an emphasis on being slim in magazines, which some girls thrive to be like.

However, they need to understand that genetics and medications contribute to a person's size. That's why the idea "healthy" weight varies from one person to another.
Modern health is an exceptionally broad subject because within it there is an abundance of topics. For our presentation, we have decided to analyse the effects of fad diets on teenage girls. First, an explanation of fad diets is required. The majority of them are not scientifically proven and only the most devoted dieter is able to keep on the fads. Most have ads which feature people who have success stories, though those people are usually the few lucky ones.
In an age of obesity and sedentary lifestyles, individuals quickly accept easy ways to promote better health. Over the last several decades, many fad diets have come and gone, and hundreds of diet pills have been on and off the shelves. For years, a popular measure taken to help trim the waistline has been the consumption of artificial sweeteners. Replacing sugar in everything from soda to pudding mix, sugar substitutes are widely used to provide sweetness without providing calories. While artificial sweeteners tempt the public with sugar-free sweetness, their use poses confirmed risks for serious health problems.
While some consumers take these figures as a motivation to become thinner in a healthy manner there is an overwhelmingly large group that takes this to the extreme. The push for women to be skinny is ever apparent in the media, this relevance has a negative impact on both the mental and physical health of consumers. On almost every television channel commercials for miracle diet supplements and fat melting workouts with size zero women as proof of their effectiveness can be seen. When a commercial for alcohol comes on there is sure to be a disclaimer that states that the product should be used responsibly, this isn’t the same for the miracle diet pills and fat melting workouts. They too can be used in excess and can lead to severe health problems.
