In their message about processed meats: flavor is spelled wrong. Here Huppke excites, “WHO THE HELL SPELLS ‘FLAVOR’ WITH A ‘U’?” Sure, this is a stupid mistake, but it’s such a small mistake. Huppke is making fun of Americans because they would use this as an excuse to say, “well the organization is obviously not trustable.” He presents that Americans tend to find excuses, small or big, to keep them from accepting the truth. Which in this case is that processed meat, specifically bacon, is harmful for our human
“Ashley are you okay?” “No, I had fast food last night and it is making me feel so weird.” It's amazing to think that people would order food than to make it themselves. Do you realize that fast food has a lot of chemicals and fats? Well this might just change your whole perspective of ordering fast food. I believe that fast food is bad for people and should be banned in the U.S. Eating fast food can lead to so many bad things that can lead you to a life and death situation.
The article “Is It Possible to be a Conscientious Meat Eater,” written by Sunaura Taylor and Alexander Taylor, looked like a very convincing argument. “Is It Possible to be a Conscientious meat eater” discusses that processed meat is bad for the world, and how it affects us and our surrounding environments in a negative outcome. The one thing I enjoyed reading from this article was the supportive use of evidence through facts to support the author’s thesis statement. However I would argue that the authors, when writing this, didn’t do a thorough job on keeping the subject professional, detailed, unbiased, and citing the sources for their information. In the article, “Is It Possible to be a Conscientious Meat Eater”, the authors argue that processed meat can greatly affect the many things in our everyday life.
The articulation that this new found information is "bad news" for those who enjoy the iconic tradition causes the reader feel dismayed. By following the appeal to patriotism with the question of whether there is "safe level of consumption" of red meat, the writer proposes that the much loved barbecue can be redeemed. This leads to the reader believing they can enjoy their beloved meat at the same time as retaining their health. By using alarming facts and figures Wheate appeals to the fear of readers. With statements such as "kills 100 people each year" the reader is fearful of whether their life will also add to this statistic.
Additionally, this excerpt definitely got me thinking about the food we eat today. These people had no idea they were eating disgusting, rancid, altered meat, so I wonder is this happening today without the people’s knowledge? If not in the US because of our laws, then what about countries without these restrictions? I’m also concerned about the things the US does allow to be put in food such as nitrates, preservatives, and GMO’s. I think these concern me because I want to know what’s going into my body, and how it’s gonna affect my
Namit Arora, author of the article “On Eating Animals”, harshly captures the inhumane production of meat in America with repulsive imagery and shocking details. Arora, writer at thehumanist.com, reveals the immediate attention that Americans give to their pets and news-famous animals like Molly a runaway cow, yet they neglect to realize the millions of livestock being killed daily. With an accusatory and critical tone Arora condemns the hypocrisy of those who are pro-life for animals, but they still consume meat products. In return, this clarifies the injustice towards these animals for his American readers and global viewers. Namit Arora’s devastating imagery underscores the brutality of American actions towards innocent animals with descriptions such as, “the cow, bellowing miserably and hobbling like a drunk for several seconds before collapsing” and, “...died on the street in a pool of blood.” When the readers imagine a drunk they usually think of a comical situation where a dazed and confused person stumbles and falls.
Namit Arora in his article On Eating Animals denounces Americans’ everyday obliviousness towards the treatment of animals in slaughterhouses. With an accusatory tone Arora reaches out to meat-eating Americans that aren’t aware of the cruelty present in the meat industry. Furthermore, Arora writes to expose the hypocrisy of Americans who claim to be pro-animal despite their ignorance of the malice and the mistreatment of livestock in slaughterhouses. The context of this piece is the media’s reactions to cows escaping their doom and the modern day indifference of society toward the inhumanity of slaughterhouses. With grotesque imagery Arora compels the reader to realize their hypocritical ways by intending to provoke a sense of pity and guilt within them.
It shouldn't be allowed because it is not fair to the people in the movies, it is against the rules, and it can cause ticket prices to increase. First, bringing food into the movie theater is unacceptable because it is not fair to the people in the movies. Many people who bring food into the theater usually bring a meal. Which people get annoyed by because it's just not right. The odor of food can smell the whole theater up.
Profanity is “the improper use of a sacred or divine name to express strong usually negative emotions such as anger or fear.” What was racist in the book was this quote: “I’d rather be fried alive and eaten by a mexican!” Some people thought the book should be banned because of the quote. But, one racist sentence is not enough to ban a book. The Times of London reported that James and the Giant Peach was once banned in a Wisconsin town because a reference to the Spider licking her lips could be "taken in two ways, including sexual." Other challenges to the book are a bit more conventional. The use of the word "ass" led to a 1991 challenge in Altoona, Wisconsin.
Nowadays, critics have never stopped complaining about the side effects from the explosion of advertisements in modern society. Among the endless accusations, there is one controversial issue regarding the impact of advertising on people’s unhealthy eating habits. But if you think it twice, you might find out that comparing with other sources of negative influences, advertising only plays a small role. The eating habits are formed on the basis of many complicated factors. Therefore, it is rash to consider it a major cause of those unhealthy eating habits.
“The Moral Crusade Against Foodies,” an article where Myers spends his time pontificating a handful of elitist foodies has grabbed the attention of many. Myers has managed to make a lot of enemies with this piece, one being Ethan Kahn, a Washington Post reporter who decided to fight back in his article titled “A Response to B.R. Myers.” He attempts to expose the many weak aspects of Myers argument, giving us a new perspective of the article as a whole. For the first half of Kahn’s article he discusses that Myers fails to address any positive impacts of foodie culture. Myers would rather spend his time bashing foodies for eating meat than accepting the fact that in many ways they are trying to make the industry more humane for the animals, by
In the article, “Escape from The Western Diet,” by Michael Pollan, who has also written many nutritional books, blames our unhealthy eating on the food industry. He argues that we should avoid any processed foods because of what they have become (424). Also, he claims that the American views for preparing a meal has downgraded over the years (425). His solution is to not overeat, but to eat plants instead because they are not as manipulated
Peta advertisment is ineffective. The phrase "Feeding Kids Meat is Child Abuse" makes it a big statement that is exaggererated. The reason why i think this is because eating meat dosent mean they wont eat healthy. The rhetortical appeal would be considered logos because it gives different explanations to make people think
Everybody knows that junk food and fatty snacks are not healthy. They are, in fact, harmful to human body. Eating unhealthy foods increases obesity, early death, and other diseases. So, placing taxes would discourage people from eating unhealthy food. It may not stop people eating fatty foods completely.
