A locavore movement could be very important movement in a community or town. Locavores are people who decide to eat locally grown food as much as they possibly can, which can also cause much controversy throughout people. Eating locally grown food is a better and healthier way to live. Locally grown foods have both pros and cons but the cons are outweighed by the pros, for instance, locally grown foods taste better, protects from contamination, and has more nutrition. Locally grown food is going to taste so much better if it has been picked and served in its first 24 hours.” Because the produce will be handled less, locally grown fruit does not have to be “rugged” or to stand up to the rigors of shipping” (Masier).
Zinczenko strategically uses emotional pathos through his example of obesity in children. Children are innocent in tone, therefore helping him explain that they are innocent in spite of the manipulation of the fast food industry. The author presents the issue of the lack of nutrition information in fast food. He’s not dissing the fast food industry; rather, he is stating the problem at hand that should be taken care of. He sympathizes with the fact that he too was once a kid whose two daily meals were from typical fast food restaurants.
They trust the regulations that are currently in place because they might not see all the issues that come along with the not having the best protocols. Another way of thinking about this is, how people are supposed to know any better when they are informed of the issue. All in all reason why he uses these references because we can see that new technology can be developed. When the US realizes that he currently way that we do things we can better.

With the government speaking as a whole about these guidelines this will get individuals more involved in their health. They don’t have to worry about being told different rules to follow. Everything is based on one solid foundation that the government has set for them, which will make it much easier for many people. All federal dietary guidance for the public is required to be consistent with the Dietary Guidelines. Consistency is what makes the public more willing to try things out.
The idea that “food deserts” are the leading cause of obesity is broad, complicated and somewhat paradoxical. For example, “food deserts can occur in a community when available and accessible stores fail to offer healthy, affordable food” (Source A). With the idea that food deserts are the leading cause of obesity, this broad idea states that obesity can be cured by throwing down more grocery stores and problem solved. However, as stated in source C, “We have stressed throughout the course of our work that simply plopping down a grocery store doesn't mean that these problems are instantly solved” (Source C). This counters the idea provided in source A because it opens up the idea that there are other causes to the epidemic.

Locavore Position As “locavores” becomes gradually apparent in society, the term newly introduced to a grand population appears questionable and unfamiliar. The term “locavore” is defined as person who only eats locally grown/produced products as much as possible, and they are also generally advocates for the cause they support. Locavores believe that there is greater nutritional value and memorable personal experiences, yet there is no concrete evidence that suggests that locavores should be the grand decision. Choosing imported goods should be an effective way of allowing mass production to feed a large population along with accessibility. For instance, a main argument for locavores is that when produce is shipped to different areas it loses most of its nutritional value gained from the soil it was grown in.

There are many negative effects of obesity in today's society such as fast food restaurants, not enough exercise, poor eating habits and large portions. However, obesity can definitely be avoided and decreased.

Big sponsors within the food industries also play a vital role with the health information that groups like the ADA and the American Heart Association provide to the public.

Instead, a large percentage of the Americans diet are made up of food choices that cater to our fast pace life. Typically, this means fast food that are processed and have little to no nutritional value.
