The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week based on the course competencies covered.
For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.
To support your work, use your course and text readings and use outside sources. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.
Increased Body Weight
In recent years, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) has been blamed for the increased prevalence of overweight and obesity in the U.S. (Bray, Nielsen, & Poplin, 2004). It is present in many foods, including those we would expect to find it in, such as candy, to those unexpected, including salad dressing.
If your last name starts with the letters A-L you are assigned the “pro” side. If your last name starts with the letters M-Z, you are assigned the “con” side. The “pro” side will make a case that HFCS has contributed to the increased body weight of Americans. The “con” side will make a case that HFCS has not contributed to the increased body weight of Americans. Consider why Americans may or may not choose foods with HFCS, including cost, effect on nutritional status, and what other nutrients may be provided in foods that typically contain HFCS.
You must back up your argument with reputable references, which includes scientific journal articles that can be accessed through the South University Online library. Remember that we are discussing this topic to learn from one another’s research and that the side that someone may be defending may not be what they truly believe; please be kind and considerate in your posts.
