Tessa Quayle, one of the main characters in the film is considered as an outspoken woman. Tessa initially realizes that there is a major issue with the company named as three bees. The pharmaceutical company named Three Bees is testing a tuberculosis drug on the Kenyan people mainly because they know that they will get away with it. The country has no specific laws to protect the people from Kenya and they know for a fact that they will not get into trouble if something were to go bad while the drug was in its "testing" stage. The pharmaceutical company marketed the drug as free treatment and to get people to voluntarily take them.
The media text I want to analyze in my full report is Food, Inc. (2009). Food, Inc. is a documentary film meant to showcase the faults in the American food industry and persuade viewers (consumers) to change the way they eat and to buy products from companies “that treat workers, animals and the environment with respect”. The film utilizes interviews from various kind of people such as farmers and food safety advocates to persuade viewers to make a change with their relationship with food. However, some of the claims that the interviewees make are questionable. Three specific tactics (fallacies) used in the text that I found to be questionable were, hasty conclusion, freeloading term and popularity.
Marion Nestle divides this book into five parts. Part one, undermining dietary advice, talks about how confusing it is for Americans to understand nutrition and what to eat; it talks about how hardly any American knows the federal dietary guidelines. The major source of nutrition knowledge comes directly from the media and indirectly from the food industry itself. Part one describes how the nutritional guidelines are not based solely on scientific evidence, but on political compromise. Part two, working the system, discusses how food companies lobby Congress, use personal connections with legislators and agency officials who can promote regulations, and use nutrition experts to approve their products.
My rhetoric analysis is on an open letter to Starbucks after the author discovered the company’s involvement with Planned Parenthood. I found the letter through a link on Facebook, as all great pieces of literature are discovered. Some background knowledge may be needed about the accusations being made towards Planned Parenthood, although the author goes into lots of detail explaining these accusations, which are that Planned Parenthood is taking highly developed fetuses from the abortions that they perform and selling them. This open letter is written to the Starbucks Corporation, but it is an open letter, so the audience also includes patrons of Starbucks. The purpose of the letter is to get Starbucks to stop subsidizing Planned Parenthood
Paternalism government policy is one in which the government interferes with or without citizens approval and is justified in its belief to protect them from harm (the government knows best). This is similar to a doctor deciding what treatment a patient needs without getting their opinion. The government in brazil set price caps on food items in order to ensure affordability and enacted regulations on suppliers (graham, 173). The city council most of whom were white, goal was also to prevent middle men from buying up food stocks before they reached public market (lecture). By forcing producers to sell in public markets and setting price caps there was belief that middle men would be eradicated due to little incentive (Graham, 175).
Vox Magazine states, “While the world rages on and problems like starvation, a massive refugee crisis, and homelessness remain unfixed, people in America — including an American presidential candidate — are arguing over a red beverage container.” Also, this debate has drawn focus away from the November 13th massacre in France. Instead of arguing over a cup, these celebrities should be trying to educate their audiences about worldwide issues. But at the end of the day, Starbucks probably did not intend this major response to its holiday cup. Instead, Starbucks intended that the cup be treated as a blank canvas, according to an article on Today. “Over the past few years, our customers have been showcasing their work on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, and we even held a contest to support this creativity.
Also try to reduce my intake of carbonated and sweetened drinks and instead drink more water which is a healthier alternative. Consumers can choose to live a healthy lifestyle by consuming organic products and avoid eating fast food. Not every product that is advertised on television and in newspapers is healthy for people and the only persons that can make a change is the customer. Choosing to eat in fast food restaurants is cheap and very convenient nowadays. Knowing that: farmers are being manipulated; fast food is being supported by the government and consumers always have the choice of living healthy people need to take a decision that will change their life.
Although I already practice healthy eating habits, Schlosser provides more reasons to not eat fast food when he discusses the processes that go through slaughterhouses and meatpacking plants. The treatment of the livestock, the working conditions for the employees, and the health risks that take place are unbelievable yet true, and I do not support these aspects of the fast food industry. The advertising targeted at children is deceiving and I do understand the benefits the companies have when using this method of advertising, but it can lead to greed and lower the quality of the products being sold. I admire the businessmen’s dreams and successes of becoming widely recognized for their products, but now that I have read the book and noticed what my eyes hadn’t seen before, chain restaurants have had a much larger impact on our world than I had originally
Determine which party will win and provide support for your decision. Hal Coker does have a right to sue McWilliams for misinforming its customers. However, I don’t believe McWilliams misinformed its customers. “Food-labeling regulations are an example of laws grounded in the value of protecting the safety and health of individuals” (Twomey,) with that being said Hal Coker should have carefully read the nutrition facts before ordering the food to determine if it was healthy for him or not. Since Hal Coker is filing a negligence claim, McWilliams may assert a contributory negligence claim against Hal, effectively stating that the health condition occurred partially as a result of the Hal’s own actions.
Desiree Nielsen, Registered Dietitian and Author of the book, “Un-Junk Your Diet” educates her clients on how to select healthy foods for their families and of course, themselves. However, genetically modified organism is the secret ingredient that aggravates her care goals. Nielsen claims that there evidence to suggest they might cause harm to humans and livestock over time.

Nielsen give her clients food/nutrient advice based on functional role in the human body and the risk versus benefit of consuming them.
