Furthermore, another thing I liked about Sinclair 's writing is how he used exclamation points and question marks. He used them to add emphasis to the words he 's saying and really make the reader think. I think this is particularly notable when he asks “And even if they had known it, what good would it have done them, since there was no place within miles of them were any other sort was to had?” and exclaims about people being made into lard. I think this stands out to me because of other works I’ve read that use the same technique. Additionally, this excerpt definitely got me thinking about the food we eat today.

Just reading the title of In Defense of Food (2008) by Michael Pollan gave me some hope that he would tell us that enjoying our food without guilt is all we need to know. In a sense he does just that, but first he defines what food is and is not and then goes on to explain how to find, and enjoy, this food. My first question is why people feel the need for someone to tell them what to eat. In fact, Pollan himself asks this question. Throughout the book, he spends a great deal of time defending why he wrote the book.
Foer’s article provides a sense of humor as well as personal stories to attempt to persuade his audience for the ethical treatment of animals along with his personal solution for his own health and the health of his family. On a differing take on the solution, “Escape from the Western Diet” by Michael Pollan provides the complete change of our diet and way of life based around cooking and eating meals. however creates a more powerful and logical argument against the “Western Diet” in his article, He uses a combination of his credibility from his publications on health and foods, evidence against the practices of the medical community, along with his solution to the issue of obesity to create an article that draws in audience’s emotions and rationale. Pollan’s strongest points in his article was the use of credibility and his ability to bring logic and reason to most of his points against medical society and the publics solution to obesity. Pollan comes in with a stronger
In the Eating chapter of The Happiness Myth, Hecht goes into depth of some of these trends and how society affects the way we see our food. People often believe what they are taught and continue to practice them without questioning, and not knowing otherwise. Though, Hecht claims, “What is important to happiness here is both the liberation from the particular obsessions of the culture, and the realization that we like invoking obsessions, we have fun with them, and they make us feel better for a while, until they make us feel worse.” (Hecht 194). Thus, the reason these types fads still exist today is because people like to have things to fester over, and allow us to temporarily feel better about ourselves. Though this solution is only temporary, instead, we should learn from our own experience rather than believe what others tell us to believe is
