When sitting down drinking a diet soda people really don’t think about what makes diet soda diet. If food and drink companies put diet on front of something does that automatically make it beater or even good for the consumer? When making something diet companies usually go straight for the artificial sweeteners to drop the calories in a food or drink, and when people pick up the diet product off the shelf at the store and they automatically think its good or better for them because of just one little word added to the label. But is it really better for you or could these sweeteners be doing harm? Yeah it might help someone loose that one extra pound or help with fitting into that year-old pair of pants that someone has been just dyeing to
What we eat affects not only us, but the animals, and the world. After learning the truth about where and how our meat and food products are prepared and the effects they cause on our bodies, I was shocked and disgusted.

One of the biggest health problems and dangers in America is sugar consumption. Many people consume sugar well beyond their suggested intake.

If if we 're to change one thing in my community I would change the school lunches because they need to be healthier and taste awful. At the onset, the lunches should not have processed foods because they are full of chemicals that can harm the body. Some of the most popular chemicals are: Sodium Benzoate, Butylated hydroxide, and Butlate hydroxytoluene, canthaxanthin, olestra, high fructose corn syrup, mono sodium Glut amate, partially hydrogenated oils, Potassium bromate, and sodium nitrate. Sodium Benzoate is a chemical combined with sodium hydroxide and benzoin acid. Butylated hydroxanisole keeps the oils in the foods from oxidizing. Canthaxanthin is a natural dye in most meats. High fructose corn syrup is a common sweetener in sodas and juices, and if consumed too much can block your arteries.

Before you begin reading this paper I ask that you take a moment to write down everything that you have consumed today, if it is only the morning please write down everything you consumed yesterday. Then, next to all of the items you have consumed write the amount of sugar that those items contained. If you fit the “average [statistic], between 30 and 40 teaspoons of ‘added’ sugar per day” would have been consumed according to data found by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (Thornley, 2012, p. 52). After reading this data you will be shocked to learn that the recommended daily sugar intake is only 6 to 9 teaspoons of added sugar. You might be thinking so what? Sugar can’t possibly be bad for me, can it? Sugar gives me happiness,

The food is so amazing temps one to have more and more because of how good and tasty it is no matter how unhealthy it is. Mr. Michael Pollon describes the dangers of consuming too much of something and how it affects us by comparing and contrasting the republic of alcohol and fat while also using logos and ethos.
Many people want to believe old age will kill them, but more than likely, the killer will come from what they put into their bodies. Every day, people are faced with affecting their own health. To do so, one must be conscious of what their temple receives; this means people must watch what they eat. People must look at the ingredients contained in everyday foods, what those ingredients cause to happen in the body, and the effects the ingredients have on the body, like the ingredient high fructose corn syrup. The amounts of overconsumed and unhealthy contents of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) need to be replaced by natural sugars.
In the article from USA Today “Eating too much added sugar may be killing you,” Nanci Hellmich reports that people who consume too much added sugar are at higher risk of death from heart disease than normal people. Hellmich says that too much added sugar affects your body in negative ways and leads to heart disease and death. She supports her claim by stating how many calories from added sugar the American Heart Association recommends getting from added sugars each day, then reveals how many calories from added sugar one regular soda contains, then shows many different statistics about people consuming lots of added sugar having higher-than-normal death rates from heart disease. Hellmich writes in a tone that shows she’s interested about the topic for the general public and the readers of USA Today. Her language shows this when she says “Sugar not only makes you fat, it may be killing you” or “That’s far more than the American Heart Association’s recommendation…” In order to inform the readers about the dangers of added sugar, Hellmich shows statistics about people that eat added sugar and how their
High Fructose Corn Syrup is in everything people eat or drink these days. But if someone could try to not have high fructose corny syrup for a couple of days, how would that person feel? Would that person health be better, would they feel better, or would they feel worse. Well a group did a study on ourselves, the study was how would someone would feel if they did not have any high fructose corn syrup for 10 days. According to Dan K. Webb (an attorney for the corn refiners association) “this is a phony lawsuit, it was ginned up by them, the sugar industry, because they want to get a leg up in the marketplace” (“Sugar industry,” 2015). People does not really care about anyone’s health all they care about is money, money and more money is all they want. Meanwhile John Bode (president of the Corn Refiners Association) says “we are very happy our in court has come. We believe the sugar plaintiffs will not be able to prove their case. We expect to show that the sugar association has purposely misled the public to create false health concerns and fears about high fructose corn syrup-all for the purpose of increase sugar’s market share”

The food industry is the worldwide diversified industry which has to do with anything relevant with food from food education to marketing but principally the industry produces and or provides food to essentially all people on the planet. The only people who are excluded from the food industry are self-sustaining farmers and hunter-gatherers. It is one of the largest industries in the world and continues to grow because people need food and the population is increasing every day.

Websites and pages are plastered with information and headlines announcing how “Mayor Bloomberg is overreaching with N.Y.C. large soda ban” or “Banning the Big Gulp Ban”.

The term ‘processed food’ applies to any food that has been changed from its natural state in some way, either for safety reasons or convenience. Some foods need processing to make them safe, such as milk, which needs to be pasteurized to remove harmful bacteria. Other foods need processing to make them suitable for use, such as pressing seeds to make oil.
