Obesity is one of the biggest health problems in America. There are many negative effects of obesity in today's society such as fast food restaurants, not enough exercise, poor eating habits and large portions. However, obesity can definitely be avoided and decreased. Ways obesity can be decreased is by promoting and educating people, especially children, about healthy eating habits, providing public policies that allow easy access to healthy, low-fat, high-fiber foods, trained healthcare professionals. First, in order to stop obesity, we need to advertise healthy plates, instead of advertising a lot of fast food restaurants.
This appeals to our physiological needs because naturally, humans need to eat food and to hear from a professional that there are other influences outside of food that are giving cause to the obesity crisis gives Americans a slight sigh of relief when it comes to the degree of toxicity of our foods. Furthermore, that people eat a more wholesome diet versus those that do not, tend to be healthier than that live on fast and processed foods,there are also stark differences to recognize between these classes that should be taken into account as well such as the tendency to engage in exercise, air quality, and other health considerations such as smoking and
That in the book it states that they give us a much healthier food . But if they were there eating the lunch on a daily basis then they would realize the food they give us is unhealthy and cut into little portions. Plus they save money by not handing lunch money for their children. However, this law is paid off with the taxes , so i think its better for us to waste the taxes on a much better accomodation. I believe that the law should be abolished and replaced with a new one.
Don’t even get me started on the American food industry! The american food industry is one of the only food industries in the whole wide world that favors money over the health of its citizens. The food that most Americans eat is processed crap, if you can even call it food! How many of you have eaten popcorn, chips, candy, or crackers in the last week? The amount of chemicals in the food we eat as a country on a daily basis is freaking ridiculous.
In the easy by Freedman “How Junk Food Can End Obesity” he really explains how fast food industry is trying very hard to make their products healthier by cutting down the calories; putting less fat in to the products, making the size of the products smaller. Freedman also talks about how wholesome foods can be unhealthy for us and he gives us examples by telling us how the sellers get the public to buy there products by saying its healthy and it has no fat it in but what the people don’t know is that the less fat products or no fat products have a lot more sugar in it to make the product taste better because it has no fat in it. I learned a lot form Freedman, he made me understand more about how to eat. I am an athletic person so I really
The idea that “food deserts” are the leading cause of obesity is broad, complicated and somewhat paradoxical. For example, “food deserts can occur in a community when available and accessible stores fail to offer healthy, affordable food” (Source A). With the idea that food deserts are the leading cause of obesity, this broad idea states that obesity can be cured by throwing down more grocery stores and problem solved. However, as stated in source C, “We have stressed throughout the course of our work that simply plopping down a grocery store doesn't mean that these problems are instantly solved” (Source C). This counters the idea provided in source A because it opens up the idea that there are other causes to the epidemic.
Obviously the food is not bad enough to make us gravely sick; however, if they just figured out a way to improve nutrition and quality I wouldn’t have to write this paper. An article in the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine suggests that food service workers, parents, and children become educated on the preparation and consumption of healthy food. Especially if the staff was educated on better preparation of food, meals would be better. The same article also suggests offering more vegan and vegetarian meals for students. In my opinion, as long as those vegetarian meals were in good shape I would definitely eat them instead of what the school has to offer now, and this is coming from a guy who loves a nice big steak over any
Even if the human body looked thin from the outside there is a chance that it has fat from the inside. Doing this would help a lot of people get educated about what they eat and how it would affect their body. High Fructose Corn Syrup could be really harmful but every company started using it because it sweeter and cheaper than sugar which mean they don't have to use the same amount as sugar they could use less and still get the same result as sugar. To be more healthy we should avoid HFCS as much as we could.
Did you know you can find that chemical in your McDonald 's chicken nuggets? Even though, fast food could be delicious to eat, you really have to be careful of what 's in it, such as this chemical. Don’t make anybody eat this junk! Do you want them sick? Of course, if you stay away and be aware about what 's inside of your food then your family is going to be healthy.
Typically, this means fast food that are processed and have little to no nutritional value. First we need to address the accessibility to cheap processed foods compared to healthy foods. Maybe we should acknowledge and address those issues first, rather than burdening people with an extreme diet many wouldn’t be able to abide
