It is often cheaper to buy a dollar burger than to go out and buy supplies to make it at home. Obesity also comes from the hormones, antibiotics, steroids, that are found in the food, but in order to eat fresh organic food you need to have the money.

Obesity has been a huge problem for most children in America. Every generation, it becomes more of a problem than what it was the generation prior to it. Many children suffer with this problem today because of the lifestyles that they live.

Today about one in three children in the United States are obese, and is the number one cause of death in America. Childhood obesity is now more concerning to people than drug abuse and smoking. Obesity not only has disgusting physical effects, it also will have negative changes to a person’s personality. Even though many people are aware of the problems obesity brings, there still has been at least a 50% increase in obese people since 1980. Obesity will cause extreme health problems and possibly death if people don’t change their diets, activity levels, or emotional needs towards food.
My purpose of writing this rhetorical situation is to inform. I hope to inform the readers about the drastic increase of childhood obesity and diabetes within America’s population. I will analyze this topic, separate it into the two types of obesity, and tell how those are affecting the population. I will also discuss the factors that are contributing to obesity and how both type 1 and 2 diabetes rates within children are increasing every year. I will be sure to discuss how the reader can help to decrease these rates and what America needs to do as a whole to change the youth population.
Obesity in America To start, Obesity in America is a huge problem. As Americans become more obese, their well-being declines significantly, as measured by Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index scores.

In the article they claim this is a big contributing factor, yet they state that lack of exercise is not a major factor. These physical labor intensive jobs burn a lot more calories than white collar jobs do.
I do not think that pharmaceutical companies, physicians, the clothing industry, and the food industry are out to make America fat. I believe that the problem starts in our own homes, with our families and us. We as individuals have lost the ability or the will power to control what we choose to consume, which in turn, allows us to make excuses for the choices we make. For some, not the majority, we can say that a genetic predisposition, or underlying medical condition is what influences their metabolic function, hence, resulting in obesity issues. Conclusively, I believe that obesity is a problem that is everyone’s responsibility, we need to come together as a home, community, state, and nation, we need to foster an environment that promotes healthy eating habits “not dieting”, and activity, support those that need assistance in treatment, and educate, educate, and educate to improve and expand awareness of the potentially deadly
