Going to fast food restaurants to prove his theory about how horrible fast food restaurants are for the human body. After going to a few restaurants David found that many employees at the establishments asked him "Would you like to super size that?". The super size option available is excessive amounts of food and drinks that people do not need in a single sitting for their breakfast, lunch, or dinner regardless of the circumstances. Zinczenko had a diet consisting a lot of the time fast food as a young child growing up and claimed that "by age 15, I had packed 212 pounds of torpid teenage tallow onto my once lanky 5-foot-10 frame." Sadly many Americans these days depend on fast food throughout their daily lives whether it is between not knowing how to cook, its fast easy
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. He made a point to show health concerns with being obese and eating fast food regularly, such as type two diabetes which has risen about twenty-five percent since 1994. This raise in diabetes also requires much funding for the United States to spend to try to find a cure. David explains how there is very few alternatives for the youth of America because those health alternatives are more expensive and harder to find. False advertising is also another unpleasant practice that fast food companies use to lure in costumers.
In his article, “Don’t Blame the Eater” (New York Times, November 23, 2002), David Zinczenko asserts that fast food industries need to manage the weight because it is leading to obesity among people who are visiting them. He begins with his personal experience; how he used eat from fast food places. Zinczenko’s parents were split, mom was working long hours a day, and he was fed on fast food every day twice. The author uses statistic and example as an evidence to prove the down side of fast food industries therefore; the reader can understand and have sympathy for him. Initially, Zincenko is declaring that fast food companies are contributing to obesity because of lack of alternatives.
According to a Toronto Star survey, children who get to choose their food at lunch ate more fat and calories than those who were only offered one meal choice. Students who don't get adequate nutrient intake at lunchtime are at risk of poor progress in class and decreased cognition, says University of Toronto. Lack of adequate nutrition means children aren't getting the energy they need to perform in school and aren't able to focus. They are also at an increased risk of getting sick, which means missing school and falling behind. A nutritious midday meal is vital for learning new things and keeping the brain healthy.
Childhood Obesity Epidemic Everybody is always talking about childhood obesity in the Houston. They say we feed our children junk food, and that they get very little playing time outside, but do you know that childhood obesity happens not only in the Houston but all over the United States? Even in some other countries. The childhood obesity rate has climbed in other cities such as St. Louis, Great Britain, Washington D.C, and Philadelphia. But the main question this paper will answer is, “What causes the childhood obesity rate to rise in these different cities and how can we prevent them?” As we know the main causes to obesity is lack of exercise or poor eating habits, but in these different cities those aren’t the only reasons that childhood
Spending spikes every year around November and December when holiday shopping starts. These spikes allow for many people to be employed, and in turn for many others to be fed. Seasonal employment starts right around the when the spending spikes start. In creating a Buy Nothing Day, employees who usually are working to feed their families are at home, doing nothing since they can’t afford to do anything. These families then become a strain on society, a strain that could easily be alleviated if only there were more jobs.
Dictator speech People of Netzlechik, look at your lives’, what do you notice about them, are you swimming in money, are you able to provide your families with enough food and necessities or are you barely making it. Yes, most of our lives are spent struggling to feed our children, (most parents go starving just to accomplish this almost impossible task) . Most of you can’t even afford to put your children through school. What will you tell little José when he was so excited about learning a new word in his English class, or little Maria who begs you to let her go back to school, because she loves it so much . How does it feel to deny education to your children, deny the key to their future, the key to a better life.
Many parents can’t afford to send their kids to school with a lunch, and with the price of lunches going up how can we expect these children get the best education available? 50-100 years ago only middle class and upper class people were educated. Now every social class is attending school, and it is expected that every student obtain a certain level of education. An Increase lower economic levels has strained the educational system. On top of all this, there are students placed into classes that they are not properly prepared.
Children in America have bad habits and food choices, which are influenced by their parents hereditarily and environmentally such as my little cousin Grecia. Due to poor knowledge of all the foods sold and advertised children are getting obese, “where they eat; what their friends and siblings eat; what parents eat and drink and bring into the house; what is served at school; and, of course, what they like (Risks for Youths Who Eat…).” My little cousin Grecia has been like that for several years and can’t stop eating all the unhealthy products she is used to. She needs to live and eat healthier. Healthier lifestyle is choosing to live everyday doing things that will benefit your overall health. By decreasing childhood obesity and living a healthier lifestyle it will help lower any risks of health problems in the future such as Matlaga says that he and his colleagues aren’t sure why
The easy way out to being healthy and eating right for ones body, fast food has plagued the nation especially with diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and even strokes or heart attacks. A question is now posed of whether or not fast foods should be fed to children, in substitute of their regular lunches at school. These kids are what seem like innocent victims because of their naivety towards the real problems with fast food. The problems with this quick fix in school cafeterias are that students would become obese, they would develop bad habits, and that the school would be advertising for these companies. “More than 70 percent of obese adolescents retain their overweight and obese condition even during their adulthood” (What Are Children Munching On?).
