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.
Accord to associate professor at pediatric center for diabetes and obesity Dr. Skelton MD, et al, states “To determine the extent to which the 2007 definitions for sever obesity” …”and morbid obesity” …” effects different groups of American children and adolescents and has increased over time.” Or this statement inside the article. “A variety of studies have shown increases in the rates of obesity among children and adolescents.” (322). I going to choose the shorter statement, because it gets to the point.
I most certainly would utilize some pictures, and graphs to provide statistics on children diets. I would also make available reading resources for the moms to reference in their leisure. My high points would cover the buying and preparing of healthy foods and to encourage them to start early developing a pattern with the children to help guard against obesity. With the second audience minus the children and with professional moms, my speech would be a little more intense. Perhaps include a short video on “We Are What We Eat”.
Acne Diet: Healthy Eating = Healthy Complexion Science has yet to explain the direct relation of acne and a person’s diet but evidences are starting to pile with regard to the pros and cons of eating particular kinds of food. Based on some clinical researchers, it seems justifiable to consume a low-glycemic diet that is filled with lots of vegetables and fruits. Omega-3 fatty acids are also a must in a person’s diet, whether or not that person has acne or not.
A Global Problem through Rhetorical Eyes David Zinczenko, a nutrion and wellness editor of ABC news, portrayed a global problem to the public in a way that he could persuade them into agreeing with him that obesity is a problem that concerns all of humanity. He stated that obesity should not only concern the person suffering from it and the parents but all of humanity since it could happen to everyone. In fact, David Zinczenko himself suffered from obesity at an early age. Thankfully, he was able to turn his life around and use his situation in a way that he could help others not suffer what he did. Which is why he published the article, “Don’t Blame the Eater” in the opinion section of the New York Times and with that create knowledge of this
In them article “Let Them Eat Fat” the Author, Greg Crister, uses concrete facts and figures to buttress his arguments. Several researches were considered. There were also comparisons among race, culture, gender and social classes. For instance, “In 1998, Dr. David Satcher, the new U.S. surgeon general, was moved to declare childhood obesity to be epidemic. "Today," he told a group of federal bureaucrats and policymakers, "we see a nation of young people seriously at risk of starting out obese and dooming themselves to the difficult task of overcoming a tough illness."
Junk food is responsible for the growing rate of obesity. This is outlined by David freedman in his article of “How junk food can end obesity.” David Freedman has credited the “health-food” motion, and followers of it along with Michel Pollan. Freedman claims that if the America desires to stop the obesity epidemic, or at least reduce its effects, they must shift to the fast meals and processed meals enterprise for assist, now not the “health-food” movement.
In David Freedman’s essay How Junk food Can End Obesity, Freedman makes the claim to policy arguing that instead of demonizing processed foods, Americans should instead support the idea and production of healthier processed and junk foods. He calls on the public to recognize that while many products on the market these days are labeled as “wholesome” and “healthy”, consumers should learn to become aware of the fat and calorie content in these products because many times they have the same- if not more- fat and calorie contents as that of a typical Big Mac or Whopper. In his essay, Freedman primarily places blame on the media and the wholesome food movement for the condemnation of the fast and processed food industries saying, “An enormous amount of media space has been dedicated to promoting the notion that all processed food, and only processed food, us making us sickly and overweight” (Freedman), he further expresses that this portrayal of the

I chose to watch “Weight of the Nation”, because the title itself was appealing. I made the assumption that the documentary would provide information on weight throughout the United States. I wanted to get a holistic view on the obesity epidemic that we are struggling with. This documentary was well informative; obesity is a factor of genetics, environmental and behaviors. Granted some may people may have a harder time losing weight because of their genes, at the same token they shouldn’t use that as an excuse.
Overall, these childhood obesity treatment efforts are modest and efficient in helping children become more active and having healthier eating habits. These programs have been successful in decreasing childhood obesity; however, more focus could be put on the psychosocial factors of childhood obesity. To combat this issue, an understanding of the psychosocial factors that affect obese children is needed. To evaluate the effectiveness of these intervention programs, the following criteria should be achievable: how accessible is the intervention programs and will the program decrease the psychosocial factors of childhood

High blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol levels, cancer, infertility, back and joint pain, skin infections, ulcers, and gallstones. Here are 10 health related diseases of obesity. Although there are several more, but hopefully this gets the point across that 100 years ago through patterns of data analysis studied predicted the outcomes we see today. This project too requires the collection of data in the form of various journals chosen to discuss socioeconomic patterns also helping
