English commentary Shrish Venkat The modern day American’s life is far different from the one in the 1980’s. The 80’s were a very significant time in American history. This was the time when the when the people’s ideology was “the bigger the better” which resulted in 22 % of the population to be “obese.” However, by the mid 1980’s this ideology changed due to propagandas and influential articles, which emphasized on the portrayal of attractive women and the importance to look good. Taking advantage of this situation a company called “Shape” cunningly made people to feel extremely insecure about their weight in order to secure their business objective of “profit” by producing a persuasive advertisement based on frivolous assumptions titled
Referring back to the tone shift in A Call for a Low-Carb Diet, the piece goes on to bring up the statistics that have been discovered that favor the low-carb lifestyle over the regular one. A Call for a Low-Carb Diet has a quote that says, “The notion that dietary fat is harmful, particularly saturated fat, arose decades ago from comparisons of disease rates among large national populations. But more recent clinical studies in which individuals and their diets were assessed over time have produced a more complex picture.

The actual claim was difficult for me to distinguish, First, I considered the objective to contain the claim. 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.
The article presents the price of the MagnaSoles at “$19.95 insoles [that] are already proving popular among consumers… [instead of] expensive effective forms of traditional medicine” (52- 55). The price of $19.95 is used to mock the consumer’s thinking that quantity is better than quality. If the MagnaSoles is capable of doing everything it claims to do, then why are companies like Boeing not out of business? The Onion displays ignorance in the consumer 's main attraction towards the price. With the lead in attraction of the low price, the author is able to claim the statement of MagnaSoles being better than “expensive effective forms of traditional medicine” immediately after.
Part of this decline in health is thought to be caused by the addition of highly-processed foods to their diet that are cheap and more readily available than fresh, healthy foods. Their altered diet coupled with less physical activity leads to increased obesity rates, especially among children, and higher incidences of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer (Gordon,2014). A decrease in overall health quality coupled with the aforementioned barriers preventing access to quality healthcare means that undocumented immigrants with declining health go without primary care and may ultimately present to “Safety Net” or charity care facilities in much more acute

TYPE: Internet Source SUMMARY: Michelle phan begins the article by saying how in America, the perception of beauty often relies on the idea of perfection. The main source for the idea of perfection is our sources of entertainment through Hollywood as well as magazines. Although Hollywood and magazines portray ideas of perfection, media produces mass ideas of how we perceive beauty. Despite an astonishing movement taking place to reveal behind the scene footage of models, America has a 40 billion dollar diet industry.

While being in isolation from the world for the longest time, Japan's culture changed greatly when it met the west.
