Greedily she clamoured for ever larger, ever more frequent doses.
Being Transgender Do you know what it’s like to be persecuted for just trying to be who you are? People who are transgender, those “who are born with typical male or female anatomies but feel as though they’ve been born into the “wrong body”” and want to present as a different gender than the one assigned at birth (ISNA, NP), do. This persecution is known as transphobia. Transphobia is the prejudice, discrimination, and gender-related violence due to negative attitudes toward transgender identity (Mizock and Lewis, NP). People that are transgender are affected negatively in a majority of aspects, which is seen through the statistics that haunt the community.
A world without fast food such as Mcdonald's, Wendy’s, Jack in the box etc would have a healthier environment. It is known that fast food is incredibly dangerous and can cause health problems, in spite of how unhealthy the food is people still tend to consume it. The film Supersize Me is a documentary in which it emphasizes the message of the risks eating fast food has, in this case it’d be Mcdonalds, it expresses the harm that could be done physically and mentally to a person. Every fast food company spends millions of dollars advertising their product, and though they know the product isn’t exactly the healthiest snack they fool people into thinking otherwise. Morgan Spurlock attempts to demonstrate the importance of eating healthy and limiting the amount of junk food consumed, he makes his claim plausible by using several different ways to attract the audience’s attention.
Is healthy food is more expensive than unhealthy food the problem Is the people tend to go towards the unhealthy it’s easier more convenient and processed food sometimes can be a bit cheaper. In a study that shows that eating healthy is it really that expensive maybe it takes a little more time to prep your meals but it’s worth it at the end.”swapping out some of these less expensive, and less healthy foods, for fresher and more nutritious ones added up to only about $1.50 more per day.”-Alexandra Sifferlin. This means that healthy food it’s not really that expensive it’s just people making wrong decisions in wrong choices of their eating habits. That means that poor eating habits are just excuses because in some cases it’s not a economic reason. The income gap affects food choices is it in the sense that people are not driven to pick up a healthy organic lettuce or a healthy organic carrots, people that are struggling with money may have stress eating disorder so they look for food stable saturate them and often end up buying some mac & cheese or some frozen dinner plates.” If you’re living from paycheck to paycheck and on a limited budget, you’re probably more likely to skip the organic vegetables and reach for the boxed mac and cheese instead”-Mike Collins.
Supersize Me: It’s Time to Stop Blaming Fat People for their Size, Alison Motluk argues that we live in an “obesogenic society,” one that promotes weight gain and an increasingly unhealthy lifestyle. We do live in a society that makes it easy for people to become obese. For starters, the convenience and the relative ease it is to go to a fast food restaurant, and pick up breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Also the portion size that is offered at restaurants is enormous. We live in a society where most parents do not have the luxury to stay home and prepare healthy meals.
As David Rothenburg stated “People tend to accept survival of the fittest simplification of evolution and leave it at that. It makes most of us proud and uncomfortable at the same time. (302) Survival of the fittest is a big part of what drug addicts go through on a day to day basis just to survive or get the next fix which leaves them vulnerable and in a dangerous position. This book is not for those with a weak stomach because it is not just a glimpse into an addict's life, it is an addict's life coming to light on every page. Just like so many young people these days, Nic sheff ended up on drugs and his drug of choice was methamphetamine.
The first two cafes drinks were more caloric, double the price and took longer than the third café. Given that, Freedman thanks McDonalds. Eminent voices in the food culture convince people that McDonalds is unhealthy. Most processed foods are considered unhealthy because of the artificial flavoring, and preservatives. That being the case, whole-some foods are considered healthy because it doesn’t sit on the shelf for a month.
In my opinion it’s an excuse” I can’t be bothered to learn when stopping at McDonalds is easier.” It seems that those who do cook at home are not really cooking. They are buying processed meals are reheating them. This is not only easier it cheaper. The obesity issue is not evenly distributed threw out it is majorly affecting the

Secondly, gender norms nowadays prevails that it creates gender roles and assist the society order.
There is nothing better than eating buttery popcorn or eating a juicy hamburger along with a cold, refreshing coke. The sweet beverage and its carbonation can become addicting. Most sodas also contain amounts of caffeine, which can cause other addictive properties. Soda is also cheaper from a vending machine or a fast food joint than buying a water bottle. It seems like a habit to get a coke when a person goes out to eat, or goes through a fast food drive thru, or goes to the movies.
Obesity happens because many people tend to consume fast food because it is the easiest option than taking time to make a nutritional meal. Schlosser mentions why people do not care much for healthy options, “Consumers savor the flavor while operators embrace [the] profit margin”(241). That is pretty much saying that the even if they do have a healthier option, it does not necessary mean that it is healthy at all. Another article from natural news mentions what obesity because of processed foods does to the body. The article says that although many people do not eat at any fast food restaurant they can still find processed foods in grocery markets, that
The main contributor, widely reported by top experts, is the consumption of cheap, and convenient foods such as fast food and the myriad of boxed foods available in the supermarket. Diane Brady asserts in her essay, “The Employer-Friendly Case for Pricer Big Macs” that “Of all the reasons why a third of U.S. adults are obese, the lure of cheap, unhealthy food ranks near the top” (519). With continual attention being given to the effects of unhealthy foods on adults and especially young people, one would think that America would wise up and stop consuming it at such an alarming rate. Again, Brady points out that, “Fast food chains have raised their game with healthier menu offerings and support for programs that encourage physical activity, but they continue to thrive by selling high-calorie food. McDonald’s salads, introduced in 1987, make up just 2 percent to 3 percent of U.S. sales” (520).
Sodas, and other sugary beverages can add up to more empty calories which are not needed in a healthy moderate diet. As we can see through these researched numbers it can be very hard to have a normal caloric intake if we are eating this more than twice a week. Some of the effects by eating a typical meal at Chick-Fil-A more than twice a week could lead to obesity, diabetes, less energy etc. This meal is more than half of the caloric
