Argumentative Essay: Caesar Barber

Improved Essays
Caesar Barber has rapidly gained 100 pounds and has flat out accused all the fast food restaurants for his weight gain which lead to his nearly fatal heart attack. “ They said 100 percent beef,” Barber explained. “I thought they meant it was good for you.” How air headed can a person be? Barber has consumed four or five meals per week from fast food restaurants for years. Caesar Barber should not be able to file a lawsuit from the fact he decided to ingest this terrible, non-nutritious food almost daily.

Caesar Barber should have been far more educated in the food health realm. Nowadays, most adults and children are all about diets and whether or not it’s half decent for you. For the past year, we have been making huge improvement in healthier food options, so why couldn’t have Barber choose the better options once in awhile? You would have to live under a rock to not catch onto the “healthier” food options.

It’s not the fast food restaurant's fault that Barber gained weight and was close to death! Barber should have know when enough was enough, and to stop eating all the junk drive-in eateries have to offer. Wouldn’t Barber have noticed his rapid weight

It is required by FDA to include nutritional facts for all food items included in a restaurant, especially the national, well known eateries. It honestly doesn’t kill you to take, at most, five minutes out of your day to see what it is you're truly ingesting. If Barber went as far as a lawsuit, I'm sure Barber could go and ask for nutrition facts.

Caesar Barber should absolutely not be able to file a lawsuit against fast food restaurants. How could Barber not notice the scale’s numbers rising and rising, how could he not notice the “healthier” food options nearly in every restaurant? Barber also should have been far more educated in picking healthier choices. I have no idea where our generation is going if Barber wins in the

    Surely no one expects obesity to be an issue for themselves. However, with the way people are so bold about serving/consuming fast food or any type of food that could cause health problems, the risk of obesity is just going to continue to increase. Fast food restaurants need to sort out a way to make their food more nutritious instead of everything being processed. As for other unhealthy treats, stores need to stop the sale of some products that are causing health problems as well. Factors of obesity become a bigger issue every day, whether from snacking around at the house or eating out constantly.…

    America never takes time to look at the problem or make solutions to cut back on opening new fast food restaurants. “Additionally, the unhealthy option probably carries higher margins and most companies big enough to start a "chain" care less about making a healthy option than they do about making more profits.” ( Flores, Joey) Since fast food owners know that they would make more money selling cheap junk food they have the mindset to throw healthy needs away. We never look at what could really benefit our health. There are too many fast food items on a menu rather than healthy…

    There are other alternatives besides eating fast food. Healthy food can be prepare in advance so the children can eat it at a later time and the parents will know how many calories their children is consuming. I disagree with the fact that people are suing the fast-food industry because it is making them fat and that there is no calorie information on their products. People should’ve been aware already of how unhealthy fast food is. A lot of people know how unhealthy fast food is but still choose to eat them.…

    Imagine living in a generation where all these young adults are on the verge of becoming very unhealthy and may not live enough to outlive their parents. The unhealthy eating habits and choosing to exercise every other day has caused this generation to be the most obese/unhealthy young adults in America. If all these young adults worked together, we could stop this epidemic and come out on top and healthier than ever. One thing to keep in mind while we try to work together is not to fall for these unhealthy food companies and those irresistible food advertisements that we know are no good for us. Businesses could come together with the young adults and by stop subsidizing all the unhealthy food companies would lie about what is in the product.…

    It is not Mcdonalds’, Burger King’, Taco Bells’, KFC’, or Pizza Hut’s fault that people are overweight and found with several health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and stroke for consuming animal fat. Those people decided to eat there and now they cannot face the consequences without blaming others instead of themselves. For example, a film I remember watching twice in high school called Super Size Me featuring Morgan Spurlock wanted to prove that McDonalds makes its costumers fat. While eating in McDonalds for one month, Spurlock gains weight, loses energy, and becomes very ill. It is true that eating in McDonald is risky and yet, its drive thru can get full.…

    All these fast food places serve similar foods; foods that are precooked, frozen foods, which are usually thawed out by boiling in hot oil (TeenInk). With the easy access to restaurants, people find it more convenient and cheaper to eat from one of the unhealthiest restaurants. Since obesity became a national epidemic, thats when the government realized that they have done very little to avoid this issue. Fast food industry may have changed the type of oil they use, but that’s not enough because people still continue to devour these greasy foods. They should ban fast food commercials from TV because those are what saturate our society.…

    In the essay "Don't Blame the Eater" by David Zinczenko, the fast food restaurants have the blame for the rapidly increasing obesity rate in the United States. Individuals’ want fast food restaurants to have labels on all their packaging, but that lack of informational charts is not the problem. People are not taking responsibility for what they as individuals are eating at least twice a week. Everyone knows that any food that takes less than five minutes to cook and does not have a label is not a healthy meal to eat. Although some people say fast food restaurants make people obese, the truth is that people make themselves overweight by eating fast food rather than a home-cooked meal.…

    When there is no time to spare, you just want something fast to snack on, unfortunately a healthy fast food restaurant just is not a thing. A huge step in the much needed nutrition movement would be to establish a healthy fast food restaurant.
