How to Force Ethics On the Food Industry

How to Force Ethics On the Food Industry | Sports Ethics: Quattlebaum I | Scoop.it
Making people overweight is profitable. If we want change, we have to require it.

I think the title says it all.  I have found that fast food resturantes claim to sell "salad" that has 400+ calories and people eat them thinking they are getting a healthy alternative to the burger.

Rick Passo's curator insight, March 17, 2013 10:52 AM

Even as awareness grew of the health consequences of obesity, the industry continued to emphasize cheap and often unhealthful ingredients that maximized taste, shelf life and profits. More egregious, it aggressively promoted larger portion sizes, one of the few ways left to increase overall consumption in an otherwise slow-growth market.

All this tells us two very important things. First, the food industry knows it has a problem, potentially a very big one if the forces against it ever do coalesce effectively. So, in maneuvering for protection by managing public opinion and policy formation, the industry will always try to camouflage itself as just one of many causes in the growth of obesity. Just as the National Rifle Association points to mental illness and violent video games as a way to deflect attention from the inherent dangers of guns, food processors will wring their hands about physical activity and, yes, video games. We shouldn’t fall for it.

israel quattlebaum's insight:

Women will and for ever be a species men will never fully understand.  That goes into everything from intimacy to child birth we just can't connect.  We can at least try to understand themin a way of fitness and offer ways to get the shape they want at home.  As a trainer you may not have a client who wants to be out in teh open or is comfortalbe with thier figure before hand.  Home workouts are as beneficial as teh gym and offer the security and comfort of being home.

Floyd Sr. vs. Roger Mayweather trainer showdown in the works? http://t.co/xWBgnnabFa @AvilaBoxing @DavidLLevi @MayweatherPromo @JLeonLove
israel quattlebaum's insight:

If you have been in a particular industry be it music, sports, education if your good at something then someone will always try to challenge you.  Floyd Mayweather is one fo the most accomplished boxers because of training.  Their have been stories and contraversy behind the training and is one better than the other.  Bottom line is if your good then your good and someone will alwas like to point the finger and say your not.  Hell Tiger Woods cadey made a book about him once his career was on teh slide.
