That’s one argument. But where, exactly, are consumers---particularly teenagers---supposed to find alternatives?” ” (Zinczenko, 2015, p463). I believe that he try to make argument that fast food restaurant are everywhere and the alternative are limited. Once he make clear of the problem and who he believe that is the main responsible, then he presents the argument about the lack of approach that this industry has to try to provide consumers with proper information in order for then to be able to make the right choice. I love the way that he end the essay by putting the problem back to whom he believe own it.
This case proves that the beverage industry is trying to hide the connection between sugar-sweetened drinks and health issues. Although the warning label will hurt the beverage industry, it could save many lives and people should work to make the label widespread. Obesity, as well as other health issues, is a widespread problem throughout America. Beverage Industries are paying researchers to change scientific conclusions about any potential health problems that could occur from drinking beverages with sugar regularly. The majority of the population is aware that sweetened beverages have negative health effects.
The problem is with when people want something; they tend to want more than is necessary to own. In most cases, theses wants affect the environment and companies. Consumption is not an issue until people take it too far and cannot reverse the effects like in the essays “The Squeeze,” “Waste Not, Want Not,” and “Needs”. Accordingly, Charles Fishman in his essay, “The Squeeze,” states that Americans spend money on products that are not necessary for hefty amounts. Fishman glances on the corporate side when discussing consumption.
The high cost and low quality of the current system creates the obvious reality that the status quo is failing. The government has tried a free-market and universal approach to the issue, and they have both failed to accurately combat the current problems. A Single payer system may, in fact, increase taxes, but it would help business which, in turn, would help the American economy as a whole. A single payer system is an effective way to completely eradicate the current problems. The issue of climbing premium would no longer be an issue under Single Payer policy, as it effectively circumvents the issues with risk in the health insurance market.
For this reason, pollution and other environmental issues disproportionately impact oppressed groups. When faced with this problem, the people managing the Salton Sea crisis should consider implementing the system suggested by Wenz. The system is intended to prevent rich people (and companies) from being able to avoid exposure to harmful environments as well as lessen their involvement in decisions regarding overall pollution. The system itself involves communities earning equal pollution points that cannot be bought and sold on the market. In theory, the system would solve problems involving hazardous waste and companies would no longer be able to export pollution to poor
(The Brewing Industry) Railroads are gaining profit because alcohol producing companies are paying them to distribute their product to stores. Telegraph companies are benefiting due to different companies interacting and negotiating with each other. Lastly, mechanical refrigeration units are not cheap, so if alcohol companies are buying the units, the makers of the refrigeration units are making huge profits. This complex flow of money helps the economy run smoothly. On the other hand, the prohibition of alcohol had a very negative affect on the economy.
Food should be safely consumed without unnecessary thoughts of fear or regret within the individuals, however companies relentlessly target consumers by chemically modifying food to increase profit. One must not feel the need to worry about lethal products or ingredients that are present within purchased food. The manipulation of the consumer by major food companies presents a major issue that requires a quick solution in order to improve health within America. Many within America suffer from addiction to many food products. The constant craving and consumption of these goods leads to the accumulation of disease and can cause drastic weight gain.
The advantages of the US process is money from traffic violators funds not only government salaries but also government programs for and community programs for the public’s well-being. When a person violates a traffic law and is ticketed, they also accumulate points against their driving record. If enough points are accumulated, the person is reprimanded by either taking away their license for a period of time or some other action is carried out. This system helps to keep roads safe for other drivers. An officer handing out tickets and citizens paying them off legally works for the greater good of the people, a traditionally ethical point of view.
Lastly, mandatory recycling helps to save money that is spent for disposing trash and other waste materials of a business. Based on Santa Barbara County’s Recycling Resource (2015), the formula for a successful business: maximize income and minimize costs. Net operating costs can be reduced because recycling is less expensive than trash disposal, re-manufactured goods can save money, and it doesn’t cost much to start recycling programs but the savings continue for as long as the program is in place. According to the City of Jeannette, Pennsylvania (2015), we can get a lot of benefits of recycling.
There is no need to tax if the people are taught how to eat. As mentioned before, some people think that junk food should be taxed for many valid reasons but others think that it shouldn’t be taxed as well for valid reasons as well. The three reasons that fast food should not be taxed were that it already generates billions of dollars for the US Government, it presents job opportunities for anybody in need and it is a source for the homeless to get food. Remeber, there is always someone out there that has it worst than us, like the homeles, would wewant to help them or make it worse by placing heavy
Finn mentions that in the third world countries, businesses can get away with paying less wages and not having to worry about the requirements for working conditions and labor laws. This international business strategy also removes taxes that they’d have to pay if their production factories were local. Finn acknowledges these strategies only because he understands the solution to stopping them. Finn states, “As consumers,
Healthy ingredient and nutrition are high cost and they won’t help companies earn profits. As consumers, we might feel disappointed and angry after reading Moss’s essay. Most of the food companies don’t care about consumers’ health. For them, following the market strategy and earning profit are the most important things. Food companies even change the nutritional profile to make those food products look healthier.
Food is not being prepared as often as was in the past and people are giving corporations their money by purchasing their processed food, which is why corporations are taking over. Less people are preparing food because they believe it is easier for them to just buy processed food and they do not want to consider the negative effects it could have on them. Pollan provided valid points in his support to prove that his claim is
Globalization Caleb Richards Government Mr.Hanners 12/15/2015 Caleb Richards Government Mr. Hanners 12/15/2015 Globalization Part A Globalization should be reformed because; it increases world oil prices, leads to balance or trade deficits, and globalization moves taxes from corporations onto citizens. Globalization should be reformed because it raises oil prices around the world. Since 2004 high oil prices are present, and its a problem because the supply of oil is at an all time low. By Oil prices rising and the shortage of oil, the supply of oil is virtually flat, which is why reforming globalization is a necessity.

Most genetic engineering is designed to meet the corporates rather than the consumer’s needs. However, more and more people are growing to believe that GMO products are being produced to be ‘counterfeit freshness’ and some believe that there is no real issue. But are people just being blinded by the science? In its place of providing individuals with beneficial information, obligatory GMO labels would only intensify the misconception that so called Franken foods endangers people’s health. Most major European retailers had to remove GM products from their shelves because they were worried that this kind of technology would drive people away.
