In the first few paragraphs Regina Casper explains that there are three different types of eating disorders. She goes into detail about each one and all the symptoms for each. She uses statistics about females and males to help prove her point. On statistic was that ninety-five percent of people with anorexia nervosa are female while only fiver percent are male. She states that in a study on schoolchildren and teenagers, boys or males rarely want to lose weight.
Through the establishment of empirical science, we have discovered that many old ideas that we had accepted as fact were in fact fallacious. This marked a shift from assumption based on logic and instinct that could be at fault to the challenging of old ideas, which has been essential to the advancement of humanity. Often, new theories seem ludicrous when introduced, but it is many of these theories that become a fundamental part of us. It is the ability to think different and question accepted knowledge that has pushed us forward, and there was no bigger contribution to our species than the ideas of quantum mechanics, the preposterous theory proposed in the early twentieth century, but that has revolutionized the world as we know it. Niels Bohr, one of the pioneers of quantum mechanics, immersed himself in the subatomic world of weird and wonderful things, introducing an entirely new way to think about the way the universe works, one that pays no attention to logic.
Ethos or ethical appeal, credibility, knowledge, and or fair requests is shown right off the bat, when the authors mention the United Nations declared that there were 35 million deaths annually due to some noncommunicable diseases (par.1). The authors mention the western diet is adopted by more than just the U.S., which is valuable information to take into the rest of the reading... ... middle of paper ... ... can be very toxic and disease causing to the body. The last of the three rhetorical strategies that I think the authors use in this article is process analysis. This means how to do something or how something happens. With the intended audience of general food consumers, the authors are telling us in the end of the writing how we can go about regulating sugar in our food industry.
We as Americans have grown up to think that allergies are just a way of life and that they are as common as the common cold. However, many people fail to understand that the United States has the highest percentage of allergy patients. Studies show that the United States is more than 70% more susceptible to some allergies when compared to other nations such as Canada and Mexico. 1 in 5 people in the United States have allergy or asthma symptoms and 55% of Americans’ have one or more allergens. Odds that a child with one parent with an allergy is 33% and if both parents have an allergy the odds of that child ending up diagnosed with an allergy is raised dramatically to 70%.
Diabetes is a very serious disease with many life threatening consequences, but if it is taken care of properly, diabetics can live a normal life. There are about 23.6 million children and adults in the Unites States, or about 8% of the population, who have diabetes (diabetes). While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people are unaware that they have the disease (diabetes). Along with the people this disease affects it also affects their pocket books. The total annual cost of diabetes in 2007 was estimated to be 174 billion dollars in the United States (medicinenet).
Human populations adapt and develop according to their environmental and cultural surroundings. As stated in Dr. Richard McElreath's online lecture, Introduction to Human Evolution, cultural variation is more prominent than genetic variation between different human populations. Survival methods and diet are distinct cultural customs of every population, thus traditions and habits such as food processing skills are passed on from one generation to the next. This was the result of the transfer of information and genes over time which constituted the ability to break down and digest lactose past youthful stages of development, allowing human adults to drink milk. Most individuals cease to produce lactase after weaning, typically around the age of five, only some human populations develop and pass on the genetic mutation which allows for the tolerance of lactose otherwise known as lactase persistence.
For example, previous study assessed the food label use among persons with chronic disease including hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, overweight and heart disease. This study used a survey to estimate 5603 adults from 2005 to 2006 and the participants were asked 17 questions associated with their food label use and was given two 24 hours recall a dietary interview (3). The outcome showed people with chronic disease would like to use more food label for checking specific nutrients compared with those without chronic disease (3). Although there is some limitation in this study such as whether subject are used only for some food product or only check the label for the first time that a product is brought, the result still suggested those population groups can increase the healthy dietary behaviours by using the food label. Therefore, many organizations have used food labeling as treatment strategies for people with chronic disease, particularly heart disease.
Since 1978, it is believed that over 5 million babies have been born from in vitro fertilization (“ART Fact Sheet”). In 2012 alone, 61,000 babies were born via IVF, making this procedure extremely popular (Doucleff). Despite the fact that this process has helped many families have children when they normally would never have the opportunity to, in vitro fertilization is a highly controversially topic that has been subject to debate since it first became a fertility option in 1978.
Look up statistics to share concerning both types of diabetes. General Statistics (Statistics About Diabetes): - In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, roughly 9.3% of the population, had diabetes. - In 2012, 1.7 new diagnoses were made. - Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States as of 2010. Type 1 Statistics (2014 National Diabetes Statistics Report): - More than 18,000 youth are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes each year.
