James R. Baker, MD and chief medical officer of Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), writing an article for the STAT Magazine, discloses information regarding the pharmaceutical drug pricing controversy, in his case EpiPens, that affects many middle-classed Americans. By using the appeals of ethos, logos, and pathos, Baker presents a viewpoint that is antagonistic of the business practices pharmaceutical companies have been following for the last decade.

The informal tone when Humphry writes, “here goes anyways..”, creates a conversational style with the reader causing them continue reading. Humphrys then uses a short sentence to build up suspense for the reader, “I was wrong!”. This paired with the use of punctuation for effect adds to the dramatic tension that Humphrys is creating.
