He closes his introduction by displaying his concern for children, due to the fact that “this is an industry that boths feed and feeds off the young” (9). He uses an appeal to pathos and a somber tone in order to state the serious effects of fast food on children. The display of serious concern appeals to the audience and urges them to read on. Schlosser proceeds to include several USDA studies (197), which not only establish his credibility, but serves to assure the readers of the content of the book. The author then ends his argument by making a comparison of drugs and food “ Far more Americans are severely harmed every year by food poisoning than illegal drug use” (264).
Fast food is quickly becoming America 's cigarette, causing more death related diseases than a packet of smokes. Take a look at the food you’re eating and what does it do to your body. ' “Parents are working more than ever before, and unable to monitor what kids are eating at home, schools are selling astronomical amounts of junk food in order to supplement shrinking budgets. It 's a ticking time bomb, and America 's children are exploding”. Food business has been one of the successful economic fields in United States.
Everyone thinks differently about fast food, I asked my friend about what they think about when they hear fast food they said USA because many people there are fat because of fast food or have a health problem (heard from the news). In conclusion preparing meals is healthy since one knows the ingredients and how the cook I cooked. On the other hand, fast food is cooked promptly. I don’t like that fast food are not healthy and makes families spend less time together. As for me sometimes I eat fast food, but I try my best to give up eating such products.
It's cheaper to buy a can of soda than a bottle of real juice. It's cheaper to have a meal at McDonald's than to buy organic ingredients and cooking for yourself. It's easier and cheaper to gain weight and get diabetes than to stay healthy. Everything is fine. Adding to that, more and more people are confused in regards to their identity, especially gender.
Their health can also be affected incredibly, if they eat fast food way too much. Their money can also be majorly affected by advertisements if they choose to spend money on worthless products. The role of advertising in the lives of youth is extremely important, it makes or breaks their decisions with money, health and what they do with their life. To start us off, marketing companies may say that they are just “doing their job” but, in reality they are just taking advantage of every aspect of youth’s lives, including school! Like sometimes I’ll walk around school and I see a group of kids wearing a bunch of thrasher magazine t-shirts.
Although some people might say that junk food can be unhealthy, schools should allow, or serve, some junk food because it will make the kids want to eat school lunches more, it will bring in more money to the school, and it will give the students the calories that they need. Student’s would choose to eat school lunches, if junk food was available to them, because they will actually like the food they have been served and they would eat it instead of pushing it aside, like they do the healthier food, that is required to
Fast food can actually be healthier than lunch food. Fast food may have quality meat, depending on which fast food restaurant, but it is very high in calories, carbohydrate, oil, and fat. Lunch food may use different meat, depending on which school it is, but there are standards for what meat and food is being sold in schools, which for that, students can be eating healthily. Fast food should not be served at schools it contains many chemicals that aren’t safe for students to eat, fast food can also lower academic performance for many students, fast food is the cause of diseases, leading students to probably feel sick if they aren’t eating the right foods. Fast food would be nice as an option for students for eating, but the only reason that fast food should be served as lunch is if the cafeteria food is not hitting standards or expectations.
Effects of Fast Food Junk food can be your last food. Junk food is the worst foe of human health, and it begins when people start advertising about fast food, and how delicious it is. Likewise, when people start talking about fast food, and how it is better than food that prepared at home. Many people are addicted to fast food because it is more delicious, convenient, and faster. However, these days people think that junk food may not affect their lives and their health.
However, people’s action to sue fast food companies seems hardly sensible, because their foods are not poisoned, spoilt, or molded. Although their foods are far from healthy and their advertising tactics are extremely cunning, fast food restaurants are not the only one to blame for today’s rocketing rates of obesity-related health problems. It is entirely a person’s decision whether or not he or she chooses to eat fast foods. It is largely known that fast foods are junks for the body, yet people still buy them wanting a quick fix for their rumbling stomach. People can always avoid fast foods and make healthier options if they want to, and suing the fast food restaurants will not make them lose any weight or fat they have in their body.
By consuming fast food, more than 150,000 citizens of United Kingdom pass away per year (Barton et al, 2011) because fast food is rich in such unhealthy ingredients as fat and sugar which lead people to be overweight and have cloistral diseases as heart attack more chronically. Therefore, all individuals try to seriously consider what type of food they are consuming. Hence, those people prefer to have more organic food than fast food. It is irrefutable that fast food is made fast and much more affordable than healthy food which is time-consuming to be made and costly. That is why, people who have low incomes or households which consist of children cannot always afford traditional food.
In an article from national society they mention that the foods that are killing people slowly isn’t only the fast food or the high processed foods that is found in the grocery store but the extremely processed salts, and refined sugars. It is mentioned that because of that it can cause autoimmune diseases. Schlosser also mentions one of the diseases that are deadly if not treated properly, “ More than half of all American adults and about one-quarter of all American children are no obese or overweight”(240). All this had started since the late 1970’s and its still going on in this day in age, but many do not want to realize that it is something that n one should be proud of. Obesity happens because many people tend to consume fast food because it is the easiest option than taking time to make a nutritional meal.
