Alim 1Hania AlimMr. HansenEnglish II, Period 606 June 2014Government Regulations on Food and Drugs"Governments should take steps to regulate the economies - not let the invisible hand of the market self-regulate the food system," Professor de Vogli said. "That will only lead to more obesity in the future." Many people in the US are Obese and Obesity is increasing dangerously. It's government's role to level the playing field. If you take junk food and sodas out of schools, kids don't eat as much of them and are healthier. If you have strict nutrition standards for school food, the food is healthier and so are the kids. Government agencies should pay close attention and figure out everyth ...view middle of the document...

According to Debate.org, opposition says that "America is a free country and the government shouldn't take control of food regulations." You may say it is taking away freedom but I say better healthy than unhealthy. It has become too easy for someone to go to a fast food place and get a hundred calories worth of food in just a burger and fries. What's worse is that this all only costs a couple of bucks. This country is fighting a war against obesity, and it is the duty of the government to protect its people and to fight this war.There is a rising epidemic of obesity and it should be controlled. I am not saying that if someone is eating unhealthy it is going to eliminate another person's freedom but it does affect everyone in the nation. With a rising number of people with poor diets, the number of people suffering from obesity rises also. "On average, obesity shortens life by six to seven years." (Knell 2) A lot of people consume unhealthy food, without thinking how bad it is. They are slowly, but surely, killing themselves, even if they are not thinking about. The government should step in to stop them and should keep people alive. People are dying from obesity and people are feeling sick because they eat too much and they eat not healthy foods. "Excess weight increases the risk of deadly diseases, such as heart disease, stroke and cancer." (Knell 2) Much of America struggles with obesity and this could be easily solved if the government should subsidize fruits and vegetables. This would encourage others to eat healthier. "An obese person in America is likely to incur $1,497 more in medical expenses annually," (wikipedia.com) Obesity can cause a person many medical complications in their lifetime. These medical complications mean that there will be more trips to hospitals which can cause insurance rates to go up, affecting a large number of people.Health of food served to customers should be regulated by the government. More and more people are getting various types of diseases, and other food-related issues simply because food companies use unhealthy practices. "Throughout history, governments have regulated food and drug products." (History.com) If the government stepped in to make sure that the companies weren't taking advantage of the average consumer, and used proper and safe practices, every American would be healthier. The government wouldn't be taking away our freedoms, they would be helping us. "The focus of government regulation has been on ensuring the quality and safety of food" (Heritage.com). However, with FDA regulations and stricter of sanitation and health guidelines, we can feel better about those that do choose to eat at these chains. If we can't be certain of the food's content, we shouldn't be eating it. "The most enduring problem in the f...
