Freedman claims that if the America desires to stop the obesity epidemic, or at least reduce its effects, they must shift to the fast meals and processed meals enterprise for assist, now not the “health-food” movement.
In David Freedman’s essay How Junk food Can End Obesity, Freedman makes the claim to policy arguing that instead of demonizing processed foods, Americans should instead support the idea and production of healthier processed and junk foods. He calls on the public to recognize that while many products on the market these days are labeled as “wholesome” and “healthy”, consumers should learn to become aware of the fat and calorie content in these products because many times they have the same- if not more- fat and calorie contents as that of a typical Big Mac or Whopper. In his essay, Freedman primarily places blame on the media and the wholesome food movement for the condemnation of the fast and processed food industries saying, “An enormous amount of media space has been dedicated to promoting the notion that all processed food, and only processed food, us making us sickly and overweight” (Freedman), he further expresses that this portrayal of the

Their was a correlation to the size of the bean and its life span. The smaller beans lasted longer and grew in population, compared to the larger ones that decayed in population. The reasoning for this is that the size of the bean affects how easy it is to pick up. This is shown in the table, the kidney beans the largest beans only lasted two generations, while the lentils the smallest beans finished with the largest population. Another factor was the texture of the beans.
The company although very similar to Louis Rich in the white meat market, rather than investing in Louis rich the acquisition helps reduce cost and efficiently produce since the Turkey-time has excess capacity. Diversifying portfolio (Crabbies Inc.): Given the OM and LR have essentially been in the white and red meat space, a diversification of portfolio is the need of the hour. Although starting their own line of different foods can be detrimental given the past attempts at doing so, acquiring Crabbies Inc. which essentially clocks an annual revenue of 15million USD and is headquartered in Maine. The firm produces stimulated shellfish products(e.g. crabs, lobsters) made out of low cost materials.

Correlation, the last time I heard this word it was during a math lecture, but the definitions are still very similar. Stated in the text, correlation(association) is the simultaneous variation in two variables. The book uses a great example in explaining that when people have an higher income they tend to lead a healthier life. This isn 't always true, but it makes sense. For myself, and like most people my age we have a limited income and it is cheaper to by hamburger than chicken.
Finally, Rohrig uses rhetorical questioning to persuade the reader to agree with his argument that food coloring plays an important role in the foods that we eat. He asks the readers to consider whether they “would you drink black water? Clear Pepsi? How about using pink butter or green ketchup?” in a way that engages the audience.
While having access to fresh foods such as a grocery store or a farmers market has shown to lower obesity rates. Studies done by The Harvard school of Public health (4) asserts that our surroundings impact what we eat. Not having access to healthy foods, can corrode healthy lifestyles and promote obesity in areas affected the most by a food desert. Many times in these food deserts, fast food options are plentiful, convenient and cheap. People living in food deserts often see more advertising for junk food, or fast food, where in non-food desert areas you’ll see more advertising for a farmers market, or sales on produce at local grocery stores.
A suggestion to how Carle could emphasize the title even more is maybe have food surround the caterpillar to show that these are the foods it will be eating or just emphasizing the idea that the caterpillar is very hungry and just needs to eat. The rest of the book however offers many unique and nicely drawn pictures with excellent use color and contrast. Color as described in the PowerPoint presentation is said to be “one of the most emotionally evocative artistic elements” (class PowerPoint). Throughout Carle’s entire story he uses many different colors mainly to show the colorfulness of all the food the caterpillar is eating which can make kids get a better idea of what the caterpillar is eating. With how wonderfully drawn out these pictures are, it just makes kids want to read more and more since the author draws them out in such a way kids can follow along with.
