Teens think that to be popular it is important to look a certain way. This certain look is not always pretty. In fact, in my mind, anorexia is not pretty. Anorexia is a disease, involving severe weight loss. Anorexia usually begins when a diet is started.
If the blame is to be pointed at someone it would have to be the consumer. One reason is that people are not forced to eat these foods. They do not point a gun to our head and demand we eat a half pound burger, a bucket of fries, and a big soda enough to last a whole day. They know it is bad just do not want to make their own food, so they blame companies. Another reason is we have a choice on what we eat on a daily bases.
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)?
Imposing a junk food tax draws attention to one of the most imperative questions which is how to define foods as unhealthy. Researcher Oliver T Mytton stresses that it is impossible to accurately measure how consumption of unhealthy foods directly contributes to health problems. For instance, many Americans eat unhealthy, but if they combine this with regular exercise, it may not be detrimental to their healthy appearance. With that being said, how do you classify food as “junk food?” Some people believe candy and chips are junk food while others believe that carbs are junk. What about sugary granola bars?
Girls are most effected by this more then guys. If girls are super skinny there anorexic, and if their not skinny there fat. There's no way out and kids are taking their own lives because of this. The person you judge could be being abused at home, some kids have it rough and judging makes it ten times worse. That pushes people to the edge, and causes them to just give up on everything.
Is size zero really attractive or is size 12 actually ‘fat’? The pressure isn’t just on overweight people, it’s most women today the Manchester Evening News survey shows 6 out of 10 women surveyed said friends had criticised their body shape and 4 out 100 said their mother had urged them to lose weight. 1 in 5 said they can’t sit at their office desk without their work colleagues suggesting they slim down. 4 out of 5 said they would be ‘much happier’ if they lost weight and one-third said they had tried dieting by eating less than 500 calories a day. Almost half have taken slimming pills or diet drugs while one in five
So to look at a woman and see the extra pounds, whether it’s just a few around the middle or the lady riding the electric scooter because she can’t walk due to being so large, the general public can see only one explanation. Women overeat and they are so lazy that they deliberately won’t lose weight; therefore it’s their own fault. While the stereotype of fat women as being lazy overeaters may be true for some, there are many different causes of obesity in women that are beyond their control, including previous pregnancies, genetics, and disabilities that limit mobility or exercise. Not all women are able to immediately lose the excess pounds after giving birth, and it is easy enough for them to be stereotyped as lazy, despite the fact that their bodies have gone through a lot of physical changes associated with pregnancy. In an article written arguing the link between pregnancy and obesity, the author explains that, “In the past century, recommendations for gestational weight gain have become more liberal, and the prevalence of obesity among women of childbearing age in this country has increased drastically.” (Siega-Riz) In essence, the recommended amount of weight gain during pregnancy has increased; making it harder to lose the excess weight after the baby is born.
In addition, without the supports and supervision of our parents, this can corrupt our kids in many ways in their behavior, relationships, and possibly ruining the life. After work or dinner, spending rest of the evening parked front of the T.V does not help burn calories much at all. In addition, people consuming high calorie snacks during T.V time can cause health problems in the long run. It's also been a problem that more and more of younger generation consuming too many hours T.V causes obesity, and obesity has been proven to be the one of leading causes of death in the United States. Lastly, watching T.V for certain period of time can be relaxing, help you relieve stress from work and home.
Wohltman 1 Amanda Wohltman Mrs. Hatfield Pre- AP English II 30 April 2015 How does malnutrition physically affect the body? Malnutrition is a lack of sufficient nutrients in the body. Malnutrition is usually obtained when a person does not get enough food; not only do they not get enough food, but they do not get nutritious food which is very important for one’s health. This has many negative effects on the body (see Fig.1). Some of the effects are a decline in muscle function, reduction in cardiac muscle mass, and a worsened immune system.
