Answer example 1:
The idea of “eating healthy” has consumed most Americans’ minds these days (the ones that actually care about their health). It is valid that, because there have been so many studies on what foods you should avoid and the raising and preparation methods that are not healthy, it SHOULD be easier for people to decide what they should and should not eat. However, there are tons of differing opinions on these issues. For many, the production of meat- beef, pork, and chicken especially- causes many major health concerns, and should be avoided. But there are some that don’t see this as being as big of an issue. This is just one example of the differing opinions on what is “healthy” and what is not. Another example that goes along with this could be those that choose veganism. They believe that cutting out meat and animal products completely is the healthiest diet option, while others believe that these diets lack the necessary nutrients needed to be healthy.
Until there is a sure-fire, proven diet that shows to be the healthiest, there will always be disagreement among different groups.
Answer example 2:
When deciding the healthiest diet to follow, its seems as though most Americans choose a diet that offer weight loss. However, a healthy diet is so much more than that. It is a way of living to promote health, and prevent illnesses. However, it is not so clear cut when trying to choose a way to eat. Truly, what works for one individual, may not work for another. There is a lot of evidence to suggest the benefits of the ketogenic diet: for diabetics, epileptics and for weight loss purposes. However, there is also evidence to suggest that a high meat diet can lead to cancer. Additionally, a vegan/vegetarian diet has been link to lower rates of cancer, however, some individuals may develope deficiencies son these diets (mainly in B12), if they are not followed correctly. Also, other factors come into play when it comes to diet. Such as culture, affordability and accessibility. Overall, the primitive diet model appears to be the most sustainable and realistic diet to follow though. Over the years our idea of what is “healthy” has been influenced by marketing strategies, however, it we went back to the original diet based around lean meats, fish, legumes, fruits, nuts and vegetables, many individuals may not face they health issues they face today.
