Pollan explains “the scientists who blame our health problems on deficiencies of [micronutrients] are not the same scientists who see a sugar soaked diet leading to metabolic syndrome and from there to diabetes, heart disease…” (Pollan, 421). On one hand, there are scientists who blame health problems on a lack of nutrients, and on the other hand there are scientists who blame those
Some might argue that banning smoking in hospitals is not so much a good example as a cruel decision for smokers. According to an article in The New York Times, smoking causes long-term stress levels to rise (O’Connor). In addition, Cambridge University researchers found that hospital workers were not smoking outside wards for pleasure or stress reduction but were just driven by chemical dependence. Thus, stress reduction cannot be a valid reason to tolerate smoking on hospital premises. Of course, everyone in hospitals will be offered nicotine replacement therapy and plenty of advice to minimize withdrawal symptoms and to make them feel convinced enough.
Wilson was referring to Milton Friedman when he prepared the statement regarding logical fallacy and factual error. Mr. Friedman published the same year an essay in the Newsweek stating that the government should legalize heroin. His argument founded on two points: the government has no rights in dictating what a person can and cannot do and financial gain. Many advocates, like Milton Friedman, believes the risk is less than people imagine. The logic is that the social harm that drugs will cause already exist through the abuse of alcohol.
Paper 1 Argument 1: Audience- Advertisement makers Anti-smoking advertisement have almost no effect on the people who smoke. Nowadays antismoking ads are everywhere even on the cigarette packets to enlighten us about the health problems caused by it, but does that have any effect on the ones who smoke? A psychological research suggests that these ads are not just ineffective but also makes the process of giving up harder. In fact, this anti-smoking ads increases the urge to smoke. For instance, these antismoking ads reminds a person of the health-related problems and it triggers a panic response deep within the brain.
In Source B, a YouTube video titled “Dirty Dozen Toxic Cosmetic Ingredients,” the doctor says, “A lot of the time it’s because we’re developing this toxic accumulation of man-made or synthetic estrogen also known as xenoestrogen. When that happens it can actually deposit into our female predominant tissues or our gynecological tissues and start causing growths to happen. What we need to start doing is avoiding our exposure to those chemical and start flushing them out of our system.” The products that most people use to fulfill their idea of beauty cause health problems. This doesn’t mean to throw out all of your makeup, but what it does mean is to check all of your makeup and see what they rate on the toxic scale and if they are a 4 or about they should be thrown out.

In debates of the healthiness of milk, I believe that milk is unhealthy because it contains several ingredients that can be bad for your body’s health, it can cause certain diseases, and the intolerance of milk is common in many people. Many people drink milk without thinking about the things milk does to the body. Despite what critics think about milk, it should be known to people the harm milk has and not just the benefits of milk. Milk should be considered unhealthy because although it has some good vitamins and minerals, a source, Michael Hammers, from Peta.com states that “a single serving of whole milk can contain more than 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of saturated fat.” By considering milk unhealthy, it allows people to understand how a high

I appreciate how the CDC displays the information in a daunting manner. Reading about meth, through the CDC made me more afraid of meth than the NIDA did. The NIDA also contains a note section that contains other information and studies that are very helpful in bringing the reality of meth use to the reader. The CDC does not directly have a website platform for meth as does NIDA. It is disappointing that the CDC, a leader in health information, for the US, does not have a page informing the population of the effects of methamphetamines.
Merchants who sell them online position the product as a more affordable Viagra alternative, but herbal Viagra is actually not the same with the original drug. The FDA has previously warned that herbal Viagra has undeclared ingredients such as sildenafil that interact with prescription cardiac drugs and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. The agency instructed consumers to stop using Reload immediately and throw away the product. While Reload’s package advises users to consult with a doctor if they have any cardiovascular diseases before using the drug, it does not mention sildenafil. Instead, the substances “Gingko Biloba” and “Panax Ginseng” are listed on the package.
"...majority of the 9,000 accidental heroin overdoses in the US... '," "...more than 95 percent of cases..." By using statistics, the article is adding to the satirical content by attempting to appeal to the reader 's logic. Taken out of context, these quotes might seem like they are a part of an actual study; in their actual situation, it is obvious the author made them up for satire. The use of fake statistics helps the satirical argument be witty and sarcastic. The sarcasm and tone of the article makes it Horatian satire because the author sounds like they are ridiculing the scientific researchers and drug addicts in a passive, tolerant tone. The statement, "...the results were the same regardless of whether a reduced quantity of the drug was snorted, smoked, or injected."
