Although Schwartz attempts to provoke a strong message, he neglects the use of logical support and credibility throughout the article. Schwartz discusses the severe discrimination and taunting overweight people deal with in society, followed by the dangers of dieting. Schwartz’s solution to these dangers, quit dieting. Dieting, for Schwartz, is described as cannibalism, starving until one’s body is surviving primarily off of its own fat. Living in an obese society would promote self acceptance.
As many people would recognize, there is a rising obesity problem in America and there are many influences that could contribute to this. Fast food is not the healthiest choice but, they should not be to blame for making children obese. In David Zinczenko’s “Don’t Blame the Eater” he talks about how the obese population is blaming fast food companies for their health situations. He begins his argument with what he observes as a ridiculous headline, which is that kids are suing McDonalds for being fat. David starts by teasing these overweight individuals that are bring a lawsuit against McDonalds, but then later admits that he used to be overweight as a child and was able to change his life around.
Nevertheless the documentary is extremely biased, it makes the fast food companies looks like enemies and it doesn’t even give a point of view which could go against his ideas. Furthermore the article very direct and visual approach is very effective, the viewer certainly captures Spurlock’s message that fast food is very harmful for everyone’s health. Summary According to the documentary the number of “fat” people in the United States is increasing at a nonstop rate, and the fast food companies wash their hands on the problem. The documentary focus on Spurlock’s diet, which only consists of Mc Donald’s menu items. Spurlock during this month experiences not only an increase in
Sometimes people do things without thinking about their health. That’s why having overeating habits is very bad and can cause obesity. Both readings, “The Wages of Sin” and “In Gorging, Truth” support comparisons that are effective in different ways. Both reading give examples of how people affected by society and this can cause health issues. That’s why they tend to overeat and get overweight.
This means that they need different types of nutrition’s. For example since their metabolism tend to burn the food faster they need some type of heavy food but not too heavy so soon their metabolism won’t be able to break it down; which will cause them to gain weight. Pollan does point out in his book how fast food is not very healthy and how it is a poor quality of food. I am here to correct what he said towards fast food. Fast food can be good for you if you eat the fast food correctly.
In the book, Ishmael also says that we try to hard sometimes. He talks about people all around the world starving because they don’t have enough food. But we try to make more food so everybody could survive. Ishmael says that making more food only causes more people starving and dying. We can prevent this by showing more commercials about birth control.
DJ Chatman February 25, 2012 EN140-02 Rhetorical Analysis Final Draft Health and diet are two things that a lot of people do not take very seriously in the United States. Many people want to lose weight and be healthier, but the food that is available to American citizens and the way people view food in general make those tasks much more difficult than they should ever be. Judith Warner speaks about this in her article, “Junking Junk Food.” In this essay, I analyze the rhetorical situation of Warner’s article and her use of ethos, logos, and pathos appeals. I find that while Warner uses all three types of appeals, her pathos appeals are the most important to her argument. Judith Warner, a published author who writes for the New York Times, has written on many government and societal issues.
P America’s Obesity Crisis Obesity has plagued America. Poor food choices and sedentary lifestyles are two accelerants which continue to fuel this fire. I view this as a lack of responsibility of ones self. As adults, we need to be held accountable for the choices we make. While fast food is convenient and sometimes even more affordable than preparing a meal at home, overindulgence in such behavior is directly linked to adverse health problems.
But, more and more people are making the choice of gaining excess weight. People are growing bigger and bigger and doing less and less and because of this people are going to live shorter, unhealthier lives. If we continue on this path we will live in a world of fat. The good thing is that this is a disease that can be avoided by having healthier habits. But unless a lot more people make these tough choices, there won't be enough healthy working people around in another 20 years to provide the taxes necessary to buy health care for the rest of us.
People should cut back on junk food, because it's a waste of money, lack of nutrients, and it can lead to serious sickness. Waste of Money First of all, people should cut back junk food because it's a waste of money. The junk food they are selling at stores and fast food restaurants are often high in fat, calories, sugar, sodium, or caffeine. Residents of the United States spend more on fast food in a year than they do on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos, and records combined. Americans shelled out more than $110 billion on burgers, fried chicken, and the like in 2000, compared with $6 billion in 1970.
