A great example of inequity would be the movie “The hunger games” Food inequity is explored against a fictional backdrop, where food shortages are epidemic across 12 Districts of the nation of Panem, Everybody of the 12 districts have to have hunt their own food and fight to survive while the sponsors and produces of the television show “The hunger game” get to live in luxury, and get to eat whatever they want when they want. Do you wake up hungry, and not knowing when your next meal will be? Well one in six of us, will wake up hungry and hoping they will eat that day. There are 10 groups among Australia which may experience food inequity, Aboriginals and indigenous people, people on low income or the employed, the elderly, people in rural areas, women and children, people with disabilities, people which are chronically ill, people which have dementia, homeless people and alcohol and drug uses.
Is convenience worth the ultimate price we pay? In America today, our society has many views on the problems in our country. One very big concern with our society is the food industry. Obesity has become a nationwide epidemic in part because of the unhealthy eating habits our country has developed. We cannot turn on the television without commercial after commercial advertising one type of food or another; most of which is greasy fast food that is full of fat.
The accessibility of fast food in schools encourages students to eat unhealthy, which is detrimental to their health. For example, students are always buying foods such as fries and burgers; they are not realizing how bad this food is to their health and body. When students are severely overweight or obese, they may get diseases in the future such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cardio-vascular disease. Fast food is one of the factors leading to these dreadful diseases. A fast food meal may contain 900-1600 calories, which is almost half of the calories most people need each day.
Cooking food with contaminated water also poses a risk of catching the virus. Both hepatitis A and hepatitis E are found worldwide. Hepatitis A is mostly found in countries with poor sanitary and hygienic conditions.Countries with economies in transition and some regions of industrialized countries where sanitary conditions are sub-standard are highly affected. Where water isn’t filtered and food isn’t checked like it is here in America. What is an example of a real life outbreak of this foodborne illness in the United States?
He provides factual evidence to back up this information. He even provides a lot of pathos or emotions to the reader. One such story talks about a really healthy adult being infected with contaminated ground beef and his experiences with it. That alone shows the effects of unsanitized slaughterhouses, if the cattle are infected when being slaughtered. That single cattle can jeopardize the entire food supply.
Blaming Fast Food Restaurants for Obesity Let’s face it; everyone loves a Whopper every now and then. Yet we are all aware that one too many can bring on dangerous and life-threatening results. Obesity is a growing problem in the United States and more and more children are being affected. But do uneducated families have the right to put the blame on fast food restaurants for their health issues they could have easily prevented? I believe that we are taking it too far by blaming fast food restaurants for obesity and that it is an individual’s responsibility to take the blame.
Other symptoms include stomach pain and tenderness, nausea, anorexia, and occasional fever. Young children, the elderly, and those who are immunocompromised often die from dehydration before the parasite has a chance to attack the liver. Healthy adults can usually survive beyond the initial dehydration and progress into the liver failure stage of Amebiasis, which is difficult and expensive to treat and will ultimately lead to death if left untreated. After breaking through the mucosal lining of the stomach and intestines, the parasite migrates to the liver and begins eating it, causing infected, pus oozing abscesses. Without treatment the abscesses can grow and expand until the liver fails completely.
Processed Meat Processed Meat In America today our health controversy comes from our eating habits and consumption of what we call the “great American food” (Gillooly, 2011) Although American food is not as tasty or as savory as it once was everything that is behind that delicious food is nothing but bad news for out health. Processed meat has been compromised by the addition of hormones, additives, preservatives, unnatural genetic material or other chemical or heat treatments that alter or destroy the natural healthy enzymes, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Processed meats are defined as any meat preserved by smoking, curing, salting, or adding additional chemicals to extend a meat’s shelf life. (Hawley, 2010) Red meat is part of American’s daily diet and our health seems to cave in the more we consume it. Americans have not taken in consideration that processed meats are linked to many illness and need to learn before it’s too late.
In the movie Super Size me, I thought it was very nasty that Morgan had to eat one of everything off the menu at Mcdonalds in just one month. Me personally, I could not even get close to eating that much food in one month at all. Morgan must have felt guilty about eating all of that food when he was so skinny to start with. He was like only 123 pounds, after eating Mcdonalds for a month he went up to 267.Morgan had seemed very depressed and he started to have very bad chest pains after eating all of that food there. If I ever had to eat all of that food....
Have you ever thought about what how the food that you eat can affect your health? Most of us do not pay too much attention to what we eat; I know I never did. We all know that eating junk food and candy is not healthy for us, but what about meat? The majority of people assume that meat is good for you because the body needs proteins. However almost all meat we consume comes from factory farms that do numerous things to the meat to make it processed, otherwise known as unhealthy.
