This is an interesting argument when used in regards to the fashion industry. Vivienne Westwood is asking consumers to consider ethical consumption when fashion has detrimental effects on environmental issues and encourages superficial connections with expression and identity. ‘...dissent was presented as fashionable and dangerous, but not politically effective.’ This is also interesting when looking at Vivienne Westwood as a study as she is using her brand to push these views on to consumers, so they would feel a sense of involvement with little to no political engagement in the issues themselves.

Introduction Robert H. Lustig’s article “The toxic truth about sugar” centers around the author attempting to prove the truth in the title. The negative health effects of today’s sugar consumption can no longer be ignored he argues. It's time to act against sugar like we've acted against tobacco and alcohol.

Soccer was known to have originated in ancient Greece, where they employed a circular round ball made of rice husks to play the game.
