A．It’s hardly breaking news that junk food is bad for us．But just how bad—and just how much food companies know about the addictive(添加剂) components of certain foods，and just how much they deliberately target the most vulnerable consumers knowing they are doing damage-is still being discovered．The New York Times offers the latest installment in this weekend’s magazine with an article about the science of junk food addiction．
B．Nearly everything written about food in the mainstream media relies on the san2e narrative：Obesity is bad．That kind of reporting is part of what’s keeping us sick．There’s no denying the fact that the American public has gotten larger in recent decades．Along with getting fatter，we've also seen a rise in illnesses like．heart disease and certain cancers．Instead of focusing on how our health is hurting．most of the media coverage uses the term “obesity”．making the story more about weight than about health—to the point where it’s become an accepted truth that“fat”equals “unheaithy”．
C．That’s not actually the case．though．While “the obesity epidemic” may be a convenient catch．all for the illnesses and health problems related to our food chain．it’s a lazy term and an inaccurate one．Are we actually worried about public health? 0r are we offended by fat bodies that don’t meet our thin ideals?In all seriousness：what good does a focus on body size actually do?
D．If we’re actually concerned about health．then we should focus on health．The addictive qualities of our food, the lack of oversight (监督). the high levels of chemicals and the government subsidies (补贴) to make prices lower making the worst foods the most accessible should concern us and spur us to action. Nutrient-deficient (营养缺乏) chemically-processed "food" in increasingly larger sizes is bad for all of our bodies, whether we're fat or thin or somewhere in between. So is the culture in which fast food is able to thrive. Americans work more than ever before; we take fewer vacation days and put in longer hours, especially since the recession hit. The US remains the only industrialized country without national paid parental leave and without compulsory annual vacation time; we also have no federal law requiring paid sick days. 85% of American men and 66% of women work more than 40 hours per week. In Norway, for comparison, 23% of men work more than 40-hour weeks, and only 7% of women.
E．Despite all this work, American income levels remain remarkably divided into the poorest and the richest, with the richest few controlling nearly all of the wealth. In one of the wealthiest countries on earth, one in seven people rely on federal food aid, with most of the financial benefits going to big food companies who are also able to produce cheap, nutritionally questionable food thanks to agricultural subsidies. The prices of the worst foods are arificially depressed, the big food lobbies have enormous power, and the biggest loser is the American public, especially low-income folks wbo spend larger proportions of their income on food but face systematic impediments (妨碍) to healthy eating and exercise.
F．With demanding work days, little time off and disproportionate amounts of our incomes going toward things like health insurance and childcare that other countries provide at a lower cost, is it any surprise that we eat fast-food breakfast on our laps in the car and prefer dinner options that are quick and cheap?
G． Reforming our food system requires major structural changes, not just saying no to put down that bag of chips. We need to push back against corporate interests. Food companies are incredibly" good at positing themselves as crusaders (拥护者) for personal choice and entities simply dedicated to giving the public what it wants. Somehow, big food companies have convinced us that drinking a 32oz soda is a matter of personal liberty, and that the government has no place in regulating how much liquid sugar can be sold in a single container.
H．In fact, we know-and they certainly know-that human beings are remarkably bad at judging how much we're eating. Food companies use that information to encourage over-consumption, and to target certain consumers who tend to have less disposable income to invest in healthy food poor people, people of color, kids.
I． Food is a social justice issue that has disproportionately negative impacts on groups already facing hardship. That should be an issue for every socially conscious person. But when looking at the large number of problems caused not only by our big food industry but by the policies that enable them and our cultural norms that incentivize poor health choices, too many people simply turn "obesity" into the boogeyman(恶巫). Doctors even blame fatness for all sorts of medical conditions and people don't get proper treatment. Fat women go to the doctor less often for routine cancer screenings, and patients report doctors focusing on their weight and ignoring real medical problems like broken bones and asthma (哮喘).
J．On the policy side, promoters of laws that incentivize health or push back on corporate food interests such as Michelle Obarna's Let's Move ! initiative, bans on extra-large sodas, and extra SNAP benefits at farmer's markets inevitably target "obesity" in their campaigns. That strategy has the effect of maligning (诽谤) the beauty of certain bodies instead of encouraging everyone to be healthier and countering the enormous influence of big companies. As a result, many people who should be the natural allies of health-promoting initiatives are put off by the shaming fat language.
K．"Obesity epidemic" language has also fed into the idea of body size and eating habits as social group. Thinner kale (甘蓝) eating elite liberals in the Northeast are trying to force-feed cabbage to heavier real Americans in the South and Midwest. No one wins with that kind of cultural polarization.
L．Yes, let's push back against big food companies and question their outsized influence in Washington and in our daffy lives, and let's focus on making healthy food more widely accessible. Let's realize that the challenges extend beyond just what we eat. Let's fight for the humane (仁爱的) work policies that will make us all healthier.
M．But let's do that because public health is all of our concern, not because it's culturally easy to point the finger at fat people. Giving every member of a society the chance to be as healthy as possible is a moral good. It saves money and it saves lives. So let's do it the right way and the most effective way without lazily relying on the word "obesity".
As a social justice problem, food negatively impact on groups who already have had a difficult life.
The word "obesity" used by most media coverage shows they concern less about our health than our weight.
We should concentrate on making people have more access to get healthy food.
In one of the wealthiest countries in the world, one in seven Americans live on federal food aid.
Among the industrialized countries, the US is the only one having no national paid parental leave and sick days, and compulsory annual vacation time.
The same idea about food in the mainstream media is that, obesity is bad.
The term "obesity epidemic" has promoted the idea of body size and eating habits as social group.
To make structural changes of our food system, we need to fight against food companies' interests.
It is the government subsidies to lower the prices of food that make the worst foods the most obtainable.
It is a moral good to offer eyery one in the society the opportunity to be as healthy as they could.
Instinctively, the first thing we want to know about a disease is whether it is going to kill us. Twenty-five years ago, tiffs was the only question about AIDS we couJd anwer with any certainty; now, it is the only question we really camaot answer well at all. By now, those of us in the AIDS business long term have cared for thousands of patients. No one with that kind of personal experience can doubt for a moment the deadly potential of H. I. V. or the life-saving capabilities of the drugs developed against it. But there are also now htmdreds of footnotes and exceptions and modifications to those two facts that make the big picture ever murkier (扑朔迷离).
We have patients scattered at every possible point: men and women who cruise on their medications with no problems at all, and those who never become stable on them and die of AIDS; those who refuse them until it is too late, and those who never need them at all; those who leave AIDS far behind only to die from lung cancer or breast cancer or liver failure, and those few who are killed by the medications themelves.
So, when we welcome a new patient into our world, one whose fated place in this world is still unclear, and that patient asks us, as most do, whether this illness is going to kill him or not, it often takes a bit of mental stammering (口吃) before we hazard an answer,Now, a complete rundown of all the news from the front would take hours. The statistics change almost; hourly as new treatments appear. It is all too cold, too mathematical, too scary to dump on the head of a sick, frightened person. So we simplify. "We have good treatments now, we say. "You should do fine. "
Once, not so long ago, we were working in another universe.Now we have simply rejoined the carnival ( 嘉年华) of modern medicine, noisy and encouraging, confusing and contradictory, fueled by the eternal balancing of benefits and risks.
You can win big, and why shouldn't you, with the usual fall-safe combination of luck and money. You have our very best hopes, so step right up: we sell big miracles but, offer no guarantees.
