Public health officials requested that the government ban trans-fat and reduce sodium levels, but the government made no attempt at changing or stopping the release of fatty foods. At one point the government had ideas of how to control sodium which would save on health care costs and lengthen lives but decided against it due to financial consequences. The government’s inactivity gave way to the increasing level of health issues and obesity in Canadians. Some Canadians realize that they are unhealthy, but don’t realize the food they eat is the cause. Because of the absence of labels most Canadian’s don’t even know the nutritional value of the food they eat.
So now breweries cannot manufactures energy drinks with alcohol. According to "Livescience.com" (2014), While many health professionals and lawmakers are cheering the Food and Drug Administration's decision yesterday to declare caffeine an illegal and unsafe additive to manufactured alcoholic beverages, critics say the move is an infringement of consumer rights by the government. When people are speaking out against a decision made by the government, this is the demand. Anheuser-Busch could produce an energy drink with alcohol as long as there was no caffeine in it, and it would be legal and more importantly it would be a blue ocean. According to "Blue Ocean Strategy.com" (2014), "Red oceans refer to the known market space – all the industries in existence today.
In some countries around the globe, such as Norway and Sweden, elected officials have made it totally illegal for parents to spank their child. Since this happened Oakland, California has established an official "No Spanking Zone." This proposes a question, is spanking a good form of discipline? From what the doctors say it certainly appears not to be and I think most parents tend to agree with them that spanking is not an acceptable form of discipline anymore. But according to the Critique of Anti-Spanking Study, found in Assertive Discipline, "experts do not all agree that spanking is harmful and some believe that mild spanking is a useful form of discipline" (Canter).
2) Why isn't MWX selling? (.5 - .75pg) Kathon MWX is not selling because, either customers aren’t aware of the product or customers do not see a need for biocides. MWX is a "maintenance" biocide, meaning it would not work with the initial concentrate, thus it was not going to sell as part of that market. When customers are making initial purchases for their metalworking business they may forget to buy products for extending the life of their fluids. If customers are visiting their local industrial "supermarket" these facilities do not display MWX prominently and the 14 person sales force dedicated to this product are unable to educate large numbers of sales reps and end-users on the benefits of MWX.
That same foundation has worked tirelessly to successfully ban smoking in all public places including bars, restaurants, workplaces, and even public streets. Their logic is that banning smoking will cleanse the air of impurities that smokers choose to ingest, but should not inflict onto others. The unfortunate truth is that not every business wants to place a ban on smoking. In the early 2000s when smoking bans in bars grew more rigid, the owners and managers of nightlife establishments complained that business took a sharp downward spiral as a result. People could no longer smoke in establishments that served food and customers did not want to come in for drinks, only to step outside whenever they wanted to smoke.

On the other hand, some people believe carrying guns is a not a civilian’s duty; therefore, only military, police-officers and other law enforcement entities should possess them. In his journal article “The Media Campaign Against Gun Ownership: Gun Control Will Not Reduce Gun Violence,” author Phyllis Schlafly states: Despite the claims made by its advocates, gun control will not reduce firearms violence. Supporters of gun controls propagate lies, including inaccurate statistics [that 12 children a day die from guns] on the number of children killed each day by guns and the assertion that access to guns at home leads to an increase in violence…The only way to reduce gun violence is to pass laws that give citizens the right to carry firearms. Criminals are less likely to commit violent acts if they believe their victims could be armed (Schlafly, P. 2001). Thus, the restrictions placed on citizens to not carry guns affect them considerably; when citizens lose the right to own guns, they automatically become

At a young age you learn how to avoid and say no to peer pressure. So why not be able to do that with junk food? You cannot blame the government for your child trying drugs due to peer pressure, why should you be able to blame the government for the peer pressure of fast food chains? According to Radley Balko, people should own the fact that they want to be healthy and not wait for someone else to do something to make it harder for them to get it. If gun violence was on the rise should we raise the price of guns or promote gun safety and proper use?
