...Vegetarianism “They are neglected, mutilated, genetically manipulated, put on drug regimens that cause chronic pain and crippling, transported through all weather extremes, and killed in gruesome and violent ways.” Who? The 16 billion animals killed every year in the United States to provide food for the meat-eaters in America. Even the free-rage animals that are supposedly treated with better care are often kill without any type of painkillers after being kept in dirty, disease-ridden sheds and being force to endure long trips to slaughterhouses without food and water.

(“Animals”) According to a recent poll 6 to 8 million American’s do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. From these people studies have been done about the affects of a vegetarian diet on the body.

This is because vegetarians tend to consume more high-fiber, whole grains, and legumes which have a low glycemic index and the body......

Binge Drinking

...compulsive, is chronic, and has negative consequences. Binge eating is when a person eats a large amount of food in a short period of time. During binge eating, the person also feels a sense of loss of control. Binge eating often occurs at least two days a week during a six-month period.

Binge eaters affect every three women for every two men who have this disorder.

Ruth Chris

...International Expansion Analysis 1. What did Hannah do to make a first cut in the list of potential countries? Hannah to make sure that customers were beef eaters. Ruth’s Chris was a steak house and its primary customers were people who enjoy beef. With the target customer being a well-to-do beef-eater, restaurants, needed to be in densely populated areas to have a large enough pool. Most large centers would probably meet this requirement. Which variables seemed more important in his decision making? The most important variable in the decision-making process was to make sure that his target customers were well-to-do beef-eaters. Which unused variables might have been useful? Unused variables that might have been helpful would have been the countries that allowed the importation of U.S. beef. 2. What would be your choice for the top five opportunities? My top five opportunities would be: Bahamas, France, Hungary, Ireland, and Spain. The top 10? My top 10 opportunities would be: Bahamas, France, Hungary, Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, Portugal, Germany, Israel, and Belgium. How did you reach your conclusion and why? My conclusion was based on the analysis of the beef consumption and population of the particular countries that are listed in Exhibit 4. With the target customer being a well-to-do beef-eater, restaurants needed to be in densely populated areas to have a large enough pool.

Essay

...Braun 1 Chloe Braun Professor Fine ENC 1101 22 September 2015 "Dont Blame the Eater" by David Zinczenko        In this essay David explains why people shouldn't blame the eater, but instead the environment they grew up in. In the introduction of this essay he explains his background. He grew up in a typical home in the 1980's, his parents were split up so they were on a budget. Growing up as a kid for him, lunch and dinner meant Taco Bell, McDonalds, Pizza Hut or Kentucky Fried Chicken. He goes on to say "by age 15, I had packed 212 pounds of torpid teenage tallow on my once lanky 5-foot-10 frame." (pg. 463) As time went on David eventually turned his life around, went to college, and joined the Navy, where he learned how to eat proper foods and manage his diet. This was when he realized that most teeangers today who live as he did won't turn their lives around.          "Today according to National Institues of Health, Type 2 diabetes accounts for at least 30 percent of all new childhood cases of diabetes in this country." That is a large percentage of children that have diabetes, considering in "1994  diabetes was generally caused by a genetic disorder and only about 5 percent of childhood cases were obesity related or Type 2 diabetes." (pg. 463) America went on to donate "$2.6 billion in health care costs in 1969." This action showed that America did realize what obesity was doing to their country. Little did they know it would keep getting worse.......

Eating Meat

...us to oppose dog fighting compel us to abstain from killing animals that we do not need to eat. It is wrong to harm or kill animals for our pleasure. We have the choice of choosing kindness and mercy by not killing animals or to choose violence and selfishness without respecting animal’s right of living.          Some also argue that our genes were developed before the agricultural revolution when we were not only meat eaters, but enthusiastic ones at that. It is believed that by nature, humans are meat eaters and our bodies are designed for it. However, a recent research at Oxford University showed that vegans are 30% less likely to get cancer, heart disease or diabetes. The researchers followed 35,000 individuals aged 20 to 89 for a period of 5 years and discovered that vegans live much more healthier than meat eaters. Also, vegans live six to ten years longer on average than that of meat eaters. Healthy vegetarian diets support a lifetime of good health and provide protection against numerous diseases. The risk of developing heart disease among meat eaters is 50 per cent higher than it is among vegetarians. If the unethical side of this subject is of no concern, the health benefits certainly are.           To conclude, if you harm an animal for your pleasure, you actually harm yourself, because constantly acting in opposition to your own core values deforms your heart and hinders our emotional and moral growth. We should challenge injustice as we would challenge justice;...

Don't Blame the Eater?

...“Don’t Blame the Eater” is an article that is written by David Zinczenk that discusses something that has become a major problem in the United States here lately, obesity. I found that Zinczenko attempts to argue against the practices of fast-food companies, and he also argues that the number of fast food restaurants that offer affordable, yet very unhealthy meals, is directly related to the growing obesity rate in our country. Zinczenko states in paragraph five, “Today, according to the National Institutes of Health, Type 2 diabetes accounts for at least 30 percent of all new childhood cases of diabetes in this country.” I believe that he does not blame the eater or the parents for allowing them to become so unhealthy, but instead he blames the fast food companies. In the beginning of paragraph seven he ask, “Shouldn’t we know better than to eat two meals a day in fast-food restaurants?” Zinczenko continues by answering the question with, “But where, exactly, are consumers—particularly teenagers— supposed to find alternatives? Drive down any thoroughfare in America, and I guarantee you’ll see one of country’s more than 13,000 McDonald’s restaurants.” So basically, Zinczenko believes fast-food packages should provide calorie information, and also warning labels. Although he uses facts and personal experiences to support his arguments, I find his arguments persuasive, but I disagree with him. Zincenko does an excellent job at giving objections to his arguments, even though......

Are We to Blame for Obesity?

...the Eater” by David Zinczenko and “What You Eat Is Your Business” by Radley Balko two different viewpoints are expressed on fast food and what it does to the individual as well as the economy. In the articles both authors show their awareness of the problem at hand but point the finger at two very different groups of people using factual and statistical evidence as well as personal opinions. Although both arguments are very valid, David Zinkzenko’s essay provides the reader with a lot more than opinion. The title in every essay brings it to life. A spunky title will keep your audience yearning to read what the writer has to say, while a boring title will readers doped up on energy drinks to get through what the writer has to say. David Zinczenko’s title, “Don’t Blame the Eater” catches the reader’s eyes. The title as a whole has the audience asking questions about the “eater”, and who blames them? However, the title of the second article, “What You Eat Is Your Business”, by Radley Blanko comes off as arrogant and insensitive to the reader. An example of a less arrogant title would be, “All You Can Eat”, this title would be more pleasing to the reader allowing them to imagine an all you can eat buffet. As a reader, I take immediate offense to the title because of the negative connotation it gives off. Without a strong claim, a paper has no foundation. Both author’s do exceedingly well when providing a powerful claim to their argument. In the essay “Don’t Blame the Eater”......

Binge-Eating Disorder

...other mental issues such as major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks, alcoholism, and other substance abuse disorders (Yager, 2008). A person with the disorder typically has it for eight years on average compared to almost two years for anorexia nervosa. Unfortunately, it is not considered a distinct psychiatric condition and falls into a third category: eating disorders not otherwise specified (National Institute of Mental Health, 2007). One of the more obvious signs of a person with binge-eating disorder is being overweight or even obese; although, that is not always the case. A person can be at a normal weight and still suffer from the disorder. Symptoms of binge-eating are both behavioral and emotional. Binge eaters are embarrassed and ashamed of their eating and often try to hide their symptoms by eating in secret (Barston, Segal, Segal, and Smith, 2011). Some behavioral symptoms of binge-eating include the inability to stop eating or to control what is being eaten; eating to the point of discomfort or pain; eating a lot more food during a binging episode than what is considered a normal meal or snack; they may eat faster; or eating in secret. People with anorexia usually weigh themselves repeatedly; measures food portions carefully; and they will typically eat tiny quantities of certain foods only. People with bulimia typically hide what they are doing. They will binge-eat and then go make themselves throw up or use large quantities of......

Don't Blame the Eater

...Danielle Ducharme LoBue English 1101 Wednesday, September 14, 2011 Summary Paper- Don’t Blame the Eater (David Zinczenko) America’s economy thrives on the fast food industry. Especially as the state of the economy continues to tumble, more and more Americans are turning to fast food restaurants for quick meals at an affordable price. In Don’t Blame the Eater, David Zinczenko points out the fact that one can find a fast food restaurant on almost every block. He goes on to explain that as the fast food industry is growing at a staggering rate, the number of nutritional food businesses has drastically declined. This poses a problem to the average American, especially teenagers. While many parents are off working to support their families, more and more teens are on their own when it comes to meals. Wherever you are, fast food is always available. Just think about it for a second, you can drive down nearly any main road in America and see restaurants like McDonalds, Wendy’s, or Burger King. It is much more difficult to find a place that offers healthy foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. Because of the amount of difficulty involved to find healthy foods, many kids will non-healthy foods, like fast food. Another issue addressed in his article is the food fast food companies are portraying as “healthy”. Sure a chicken salad seems like a pretty healthy meal, even if it does come from McDonald’s right? Wrong. Once you add on all the extras McDonalds gives you with your......
