Today, and in the past, nutritional information is hidden in an out of the way location, because of this parents are in the dark and willingly submit to a faster and easier medium: the drive-thru. It is completely ridiculous and no wonder obesity is such a problem in America. He does not deny that there should be a sense of personal responsibility among the public, but has sympathy for the kid consumers because he used to be one. I feel that the only way to get these companies to change policies is to get the Food and Drug Administration involved. Also, you cited Eric Schlosser's article below your posting, but I didn't see any reference to him in your actual posting. After I completed the diet analysis, I realized just how terrible my eating habits are right now.
And I agree with him one hundred percent. He does not deny that there should be a sense of personal responsibility among the public, but has sympathy for the kid consumers because he used to be one. Any reasonably intelligent person, or medically literate person, would tell you that a Big Mac is not a healthy meal. He emphasizes that even if the customers were able to obtain the nutritional facts, they are not palpable, but rather obscure. ~Today, there are roughly 30% of new childhood cases of Type 2 diabetes. Overall I think the argument that Zinczenko makes is clearly explained although more could be said as to why his opinion is superior to those of the other authors. This to Zinczenko is the reason America is over weight and unhealthy.
Kids taking on McDonald's this week, suing the company for making them fat. I liked that you used facts that grabbed your attention, were informative, and can toy with emotions in the case of the diabetic children. Although I agree with Zinczenko up to a point. They would do well to protect themselves, and their customers, by providing the nutrition information people need to make informed choices about their products. Zinczenko opens his articles with a personal story about growing up eating fast food because his parents split up, his mom had to work and he had no other options. These grocery stores are just as plentiful as the unhealthy fast food restaurants, and are just as easy to purchase food from. People claim that fast food is just easier and less expensive than something that provides nutritional value to your body.
Affordable, efficient, and convenient food may help the population, however, it is a market based on unhealthy practices. The only thing I think could be stronger was your argument against Campos. He points out that the fast-food companies make the nutrition labels vague and misleading; they calculate the calories for every separate part of the meal, and they make it so the consumer must pay attention to serving size as well. I think the ideas and opinions of the post are well stated and nicely organized. He does not deny that there should be a sense of personal responsibility among the public, but has sympathy for the kid consumers because he used to be one. Overall, Zinczenko makes a great argument.
They should control their kids from eating unhealthy food from the beginning. He believes that if it does non set an terminal to this hazardous behaviour. Zinczenko makes a great statement. You mentioned that his argument is weak in places but you didn't say how or prove it. Zinczenko complains that there is non any kind of nutritionary labeling on the bill of fare at fast-food eating houses. Explaining the labels is not the job of the employees. He argues that traveling out to eat was and is the easiest.
However, Zinczenko having struggled with childhood obesity himself, he offers sympathy for those who find themselves in this position. . Zinczenko supports his claim with his personal experience to show how the fast-food chains marketing on them with low price. How can people just sit around all day watching television, participate in a fast-food buffet, and then blame the restaurants for their health issues? Gerald Graff, Cathy Birkenstein, and Russel Durst. The problem is that most of these youths do not know the dangers of eating such meals on a regular basis, such as obesity, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
Maybe try incorporating a little more on how his argument is superior. A generalized point of view that can be taken from this is that the fast food industry is incredibly convenient and affordable for necessary needs to live and thrive in modern day America. However, if they take in too much sodium or the wrong carbohydrates, their bodies can suffer. Zinczenko mentions that there are not any alternatives for fast food. It is very easy to walk into your neighborhood Jewel or Super Target and buy a pre-made turkey sandwich and an apple for about the same price as a fast food meal.
~Eating fast food as a child made the author obese. Does it account for the different condiments that could come on it? Though the bill of fares have been improved in the past few old ages. We can prevent this from happening to future teenagers by changing the way nutritional information is dispensed. No parent would ever want their son or daughter to be obese, so we need to let the parents know how bad fast food can be if that is all you eat. David Zinczenko agrees with this claim. Maybe that's because I used to be one of them.
Shouldn't we know better than to eat two meals a day in fast-food restaurants? And the problem isn't just theirs -- it's all of ours. I liked the way you summarized the end of your work, but would have liked to see a a few more ending sentences. Zinczenko recently did an exclusive interview with Barack Obama prior to winning the presidency. Taking money away from a multi-billion dollar company is not going to have much of an effect, especially when looking at the amount of money these companies throw around on advertising. I went to college, joined the Navy Reserves and got involved with a health magazine. It's a really big problem. I think your group did an excellent job of summarizing the argument that David Zinczenko makes.
All through her article, she pokes fun at the government giving different stories about how individual people are trying to fight the ways that the government is trying to deal with the obesity crisis. I would also agree that explaining some parts more in depth would help. Lunch and dinner, for me, was a daily choice between McDonald's, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken or Pizza Hut. I do not feel that merely placing a lawsuit against a company with so much money will cause them to change anything. I tend to disagree with the author David Zinczeko. I agree with his arguments that consumers are oblivious to the true horrors of the impact of a fast-food diet, but I do not agree that they should go so far as to sue the In Pekin, Illinois, it seems that no matter where you live whether it be Catherine Street or Sheridan Road, there is an array of fast food choices available.
