Unfortunately, many of the studies are short-range and do not directly point the finger that HFCS are the sole contributor to the obesity epidemic that is plaguing our country. The challenge in making these connections of HFCS to obesity comes from the studies that have lacked the results that prove the sole impact that HFCS has had on the obesity epidemic. For example, in an article by Salwa Rizkalla in “Health Implications of fructose consumption: A review of recent data.” highlights some of the challenges in the studies used when trying to directly link HFCS to obesity. In one study, mice were used that were injected with a dose of HFCS that was too large to equate what a human would consume. (2) Regardless of the samples and the consumption by lab rats, the data continues to be inconclusive.
Many people believe that it is not the responsibility of the food industry that obesity is becoming a serious issue because it is based on sole responsibility of what they choose to eat, whether they choose to exercise or not, and in the case of child obesity, the lack of responsibility the parents maintain; and the food industry concurs when addressed by the government. They are very defensive when they are resistant when the government tries to restrict the food industry from marketing to children in Australia. Legislation has begun to have fast-food restaurants display the nutritional
They are making comments such as, "The problem of obesity is so staggering, so out of control, that we have to do something." There is something this person can do to fix this problem of obesity. This person can stop blaming the restaurants, stop eating at the restaurants, start making healthy decisions, and exercise. If not, then this person can keep making the decision of eating there and getting fat, but not sue the restaurant because this is a decision he has made. Fast food restaurants dont force the clients to buy and eat there.
But is this true? As we can truly say, nutritionism is not actually benefiting society in general because it lacks real food, it’s more expensive, and causes many diseases; however, nutritionism can be very successful for the world of business of industries. When we talk about real food, it means recognizable, good quality, whole food that rots when it's kept for too long. These foods are the ones our ancestors used to eat on a regular basis until it was replaced with a whole new type of nutrition one, in which chemically-infused, food- like materials focused mainly on nutritional facts. For example, when we go in the supermarket to buy food we read the facts in the back of the product checking what types nutrition it has, and how much it has.
The author fails to take other opponents of Natural’s Way into consideration. Thus, it is very likely that competitiveness in healthy food markets in P is tremendous sharp, while Natural’s Way has no advantages to outweigh its opponents to fire for a success battle. If that is the case, a new store in P, just as the author claimed, might not be a sensible decision, though healthy food and related healthy products are badly needed in
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.

"This can only potentially get worse. We need to think about what we're putting into our grocery carts." A major source of concern is the fact that while grocery-store staples such as potatoes or apples are expensive in some regions, the cost of chips, pop and other processed foods is fairly low, and stable, across the country. It's a reality that is stoking fears that more people will be forced to dine on less-healthy
Analyse the possible motivations of The Coca Cola Company for its position and its measures on obesity. Coca Cola has various motivations in doing this campaign. First, it is a way for them to prevent them from a negative publicity. Indeed, NGOs are accusing sugar-sweetened beverage of being responsible of the rising obesity. Through this campaign, Coca Cola is saying two things: they are fighting against obesity meaning they are socially implicated which is valued by consumers and so create a good image for them; then, Coca Cola is not responsible of obesity because they sell no calorie beverages and so in fact the consumers are the ones responsible of choosing such beverages.
