Relevance between Food and Humans with Rhetorical Analysis In the modern industrial society, being aware of what the food we eat come from is an essential step of preventing the “national eating disorder”. In Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma, he identifies the humans as omnivores who eat almost everything, which has been developed into a dominant part of mainstream unhealthiness, gradually causing the severe eating disorder consequences among people. Pollan offers his opinion that throughout the process of the natural history of foods, deciding “what should we have for dinner” can stir the anxiety for people based on considering foods’ quality, taste, price, nutrition, and so on.
In “Strange Fruit” the author’s, Abel Meeropol, use of juxtaposition contrasts the alluring nature of the south with the twisted picture of a lynched African-American body, to emphasize the severity of lynching during the mid 1900s. An example of juxtaposition is the line, “Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh/and the sudden smell of burning flesh!” (7/8). While magnolias are flowers that have a pleasant smell and connotation, that of burning flesh is quite the opposite, and has a negative connotation and repulsive smell. Another instance is the description of a “black body swinging in the Southern breeze”(3) being compared to a “strange fruit,”(1).

“Stuff Is Not Salvation 1.Anna Quindlen gained the knowledge of appreciating our everyday needs rather than the materialistic things that more than often we convince ourselves we need. Choosing to spend money on pointless “ junk” such as; designer clothes and accessories, flat-screens, gadgets, and immense homes isn't worth half the money. Especially when hard earned money is needed much more for rent, health insurance, and tuition.

The research question is as follows: are there any gender difference in people’s beverage selection of soft drinks and diet soft drinks? The hypothesis is that compared to men, women are less likely to choose soft drinks among all beverages, and if soft drinks are chosen, women are more likely to consume diet soft drinks than regular ones. Relevant empirical works have shown that gender differences in food selection exist as men demonstrate fewer healthy choices than women (Wardle, 2004). In both adolescence and adulthood, men consume meats, dairy products, and carbohydrate- rich foods significantly more frequent than women, and women were more likely to consume fruits, yogurt, tea, and low-calorie carbonated beverages (Rolls, 1991). Health beliefs are hypothesized as one cause of gendered food selection as men rate many health behaviors, including food selection choices, as less important than women do (Wardle, 2004).
Everyday food Abstract The article discusses the role of food as an instrument of identity and a channel of contact through cultures. This is discussed drawing from three cases of Italian food culture hybridization spanning from the early 20th century to the first decade of the 2000s: the role of Italian food in Italian-American identity as depicted in Leonardo Coviello’s work; the meeting of Southern and Northern food cultures following the Italian internal migrations in the ‘50s and ‘60s; the food practices of international migrants in the context of the global flows of people and commodities in present day Italy.
