3.1 How income inequality affect on people live in America. The income gap in America affects people, who live in this country. The issue has a strong impact in America’s society; in particular, the nutritional disparity between rich and poor people. In USA, the food gap becomes the top signal for the class distinction, but it used to be clothing or fashion. The food inequality in America is not only influencing the poverty, it is also cost hundreds of billions of dollar per year because of Non Communicable Diseases (NDCs) (Ferdman, 2014).
The government role expanded from 1877-1920 because of all the power that was being abuse by the rich. For a long time, the country dealt with inequality, such as paying anyone who was not a white man less and over working them. Not only was abused power and inequality pay depending on your color or gender or age a problem but the food was being processed with chemicals that made people sick and in other cases die. The growing of the government is good because it shortened work hours for women, made it safer to eat meat and other foods, and dealt with politicians who bought their way to office.
Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
Pollan explains this situation in the quote, “ What 's involved in absorbing all this excess biomass goes a long way toward explaining several seemingly unconnected phenomena, from the rise of factory farms and the industrialization of our food, to the epidemic of obesity and prevalence of food poisoning in America…”, portrays the waste of vital resources being inputted into a larger issue. Because most people in America are unaware of these problems being directly correlated from the waste of oils and assets, we become blind to how it will affect us as a whole. However, Eisenhower expressed his concern with our excessive use of resources when he stated, “ As we peer into society’s future, we-- you andI, and our government-- must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow.” Truly, we need to find a solution to this epidemic so our resources of today do not become a history of
He also believes that lunchables overall impact on the masses as “anything but a positive contribution to people's lives.” (Moss 269) Studies show otherwise and directly link junk foods to the obesity and hypertension crisis in America. The significance in this is that people are suffering because of the decisions of the few in power and the people in power do not care, resulting in only more exploitation of the vulnerable and furthering the imbalance of power between the rich and the
Conflict theory is based altogether in power and how people with great influence do whatever they can to hold most of the populace down and to keep them from picking up power, in order to secure their own position. Conflict theorists would state that obesity is a result of the living conditions, stress and low quality of nourishment and wellbeing training that people with great influence pick and authorize for those that aren 't in power. Conflict Theorists may state that those that are in power readily set up society so that the less expensive the great is, the more unfortunate it is, thus the poor may just have the capacity to manage the cost of shoddy, undesirable mass nourishment and get to be distinctly vulnerable to obesity. Conflict theorists may state that sustenance training may be controlled by bigger government powers who pay special mind to their own particular primary concern and corporate interests from backers and lobbyists. Conflict theory may likewise contend that by having individuals be large may additionally guarantee the status of the capable few at the highest point of the evolved way of life.

Furthermore, there are many different opinions of these welfare programs because everyone comes from a different background, economically and politically. One benefit from these welfare programs that are most angrily discussed and debated over is American citizens taking advantage of food stamps and other government aid sent from these programs. However, many believe that various programs such as FAFSA, child support, and public housing are very
Eating a certain food may be synonymous to living in poverty, or it may be a sign of a fine diner. There is an idea in American society that unhealthy food will usually taste much better than a healthy counterpart. Wilson touches on this principle, asserting that “nutritionists use the word ‘palatable’ to describe foods high in sugar, salt…” (B. Wilson xxii). Because of this notion of unhealthy favorability, the taste of a food that is known to possess one of the damaging traits described by Wilson will be subconsciously marked higher by many people. The socioeconomic status of a food is another value determined by society that affects a person’s preconceived notions of food.
