The number of obese people in this world today has grown tremendously from what it used to be. Most people would blame this on fast food places, but reality check, people are responsible for themselves. In “Don’t Blame the Eater” by David Zinczenko, he talks about how fast food places are so common and quick that parents and children tend to eat more.

But like he says in his article, “most of the teenagers who live, as I once did, on a fast-food diet won’t turn their lives around: They’ve crossed under the golden arches to a likely fate of lifetime obesity” (893). Balko uses pathos in a way that could cause the reader to become angry. The way he talks about how others are responsible for the obese people makes the reader realize that it’s not fair. “We’re becoming less responsible for our own health, and more responsible for everyone else’s” (897). He explains this to emphasize his point on how some people are paying for other people’s medicine because of laws. Therefore, this shows how obese people are not responsible enough to take care of themselves, requiring the healthy people to pay for them. Both articles have great usage of pathos that would initiate the reader to sit and think about their opinion on obesity and how those people need to be held responsible for their own
