Synthesis Essay Rough Draft Obesity can be seen as the epidemic of the twenty-first century as it poses a threat to a large percent of the current population, and like all epidemics, there is a suspected cause, “Food deserts.” This term is a technical term used by the CDC to describe an area that lacks access to foods high in nutrients, such as specific areas without grocery stores nearby. The idea of “food deserts” is paradoxical and can be seen as holding back people who want to eat healthy food, but it also has little impact on those who do not already want to eat healthily.

After growing tired of hearing vegans and vegetarians telling her that it is absolutely atrocious to consume meat, Jacky Hayward makes an argument against these plant eaters in her article Why I Eat Meat (And Why You Should, Too). Starting off with a hypothetical theory, she responds to these vegans and vegetarians that if all people resorted to having a plant based diet then the world will eventually have no more livestock and soon no fertilizer. She continued on that the beef she eats is the “good” type of beef or better known as grass fed. This right kind of meat is the only one that should be consumed by everyone who loves eating meat. Her thesis statement revolves around the idea between the bad beef and the good beef, and that she herself only eats the good kind of beef.

Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
