Discrimination at Large Growing up, obesity has always been an issue in my family. I have watched most of the women in my family go from diet to diet in the hopes of losing weight. We as a society have placed so much emphasis on looking a certain way or thinking skinny is healthy that we have created a stereotype where being overweight is seen as gross or unhealthy. Obesity is stereotyped in a negative way in many countries. Studies have shown that adults describe obese people by undesirable attributes such as lazy, unappealing, unhappy, unpopular and sloppy (Harris et al., 1982; Tiggemann and Rothblum, 1988; Ryckman et al., 1989; Cogan et al., 1996).
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.

These vitamins are important for growth and healing and they need fat to be absorbed. Because most teens with CF have trouble digesting fat, they often have low levels of these vitamins and may be prescribed supplements. In some cases, teens with CF may have low energy or trouble gaining weight, even with good nutrition and supplements. For these teens, doctors may recommend they get extra nutrients through a tube that is inserted into the stomach (called tube feeding). Tube feedings, which most people choose to do overnight, provide about 1,000 to 2,000 calories.
Childhood Obesity pg.1 Childhood Obesity Sociology 111 Mrs. Roberts November 16, 2011 Childhood Obesity pg.2 Historically there has always been a problem with obesity in children. Chubby babies and toddlers were more likely to survive infections and contagious diseases, and overweight children and family members were often thought to be financially secure. Today being overweight puts a child at risk for developing chronic diseases such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol levels. Obesity can promote degenerative joint disease which will result in painful knees, hips, feet, and back. Childhood obesity does not affect just the child, it can be stressful on an entire family (Childhood Obesity, 1998, p.1).
“Dieting often fails because people are trying to go against their biological drive to eat.” Discuss explanations for the success and failure of dieting. Dieting is extremely common and research has shown that up to 70% of women diet at some stage in their lives. Some diets are successful, whereas some are not and there are many explanations for this. One explanation for why dieting is successful is that those with low self-esteem and are dissatisfied with their body are more likely to stick to their diet and lose weight. Ogdens’ 2000 study supports this view; he investigated differences in psychological factors between weight loss regainers and weight loss maintainers.

This misrepresentation of the ideal body leads teens to harmful practices like body dysmorphic disorder or eating disorders in hopes of getting the perfect figure or muscle tone. Only forty-eight percent of millennials agree or strongly agree that they worry about the negative effects of social media on their physical or mental well-being (Source G). This is less than half of the total millennial population interviewed, which further proves that social media is not having as negative of an effect on teens as many claim it is having. Both the music they listen to and media they are exposed to lead teens to having physical and/or mental health problems; however, none of these issues are a result of social media
