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.
This is the biggest type of persuasion and the most dangerous, the reason I say this because not only do people judge themselves on how they look but they judge everyone else. That why there are so many kids these days starving themselves, or taking steroids, or being picked on because they don’t have the perfect body. This leads to diseases like anorexia, addictions, low self esteem, even as drastic as suicide. What people don’t realize is that it all leads back to where that mindset derived from, which is every TV show, movie, commercial, and advertisement. Each one by themselves is not harmful, but if you are watching a movie and during the movie you have commercials and you switch the channel to a TV show or pick up a magazine, you are bombarded with it and subliminally you don’t realize but your mind is making mental notes of each one and that’s how persuasion

Consistently, women are diminished by advertisers to pretty body parts used to sell products, a practice that perpetuates the glorification of this unreasonable ideal of beauty. Women’s bodies have not only become a huge money-maker for advertisers, businesses have picked up on women’s insecurities about their bodies and have capilatized on these insecurities. On one hand, advertisers heavily market weight-reduction programs and present young anorexic models as the paradigm of ideal beauty; on the other hand, the media floods the airwaves and magazine pages with ads for junk food. In 1996, the diet industry (as in diet foods, diet programs, diet drugs) took in over $40 billion dollars, and that number is still climbing (Facts and Figures 1). Young women seem to be especially affected by our culture’s obsession with weight and beauty.

Some of the differences were how it happened like in hitch it was because sarahs friend got screwed over and she blamed the date doctor. In how to lose a guy in 10 days it happened over a bet that was pointless because in the end it hurt both of them even though they loved each other. So even though they share thing and have thing that differ there both based on the concept of love and how it can change a person no matter
Some even die because of trying to fix a certain mold of what is beautiful. As Jared Plokin states, “The media is currently at war with women's body image” (1).
