A great example of this can be seen when the science behind each change is expertly, but simply, explained. When the benefits of vegetarian diets and gluten-free diets are discussed, Chopra and Tanzi describe a research study that was done at University of California, San Francisco involving feeding some mice a high junk food diet while feeding other mice a vegan diet. When the diets of the mice were switched, the microbiome of their intestines changed within three days (the switch from junk food to vegan diet showed the better change). Strong evidence like this is helpful to the readers and gives them a better understanding of the information presented to them. This also displays the knowledge of Chopra and Tanzi, which can reassure the readers that they are receiving expert
A large part of a person’s lifetime is spent on their consumption of food, which is often done while neglecting the impact their diet has on their health. Is there a reason for us to be conscious of our diet? Are potential health benefits really worth the effort? Vegetarian have shown many health benefits in comparison to meat eaters such as decreased chances of developing type 2 diabetes, less risk of heart disease and prostate cancer, lower blood cholesterol levels and blood pressure to name a few (Mangels et al., 2014). Plants provide antioxidants that are only present in small amounts in meat products, these phytochemicals help protect cells from damage and thus have reduced odds of developing some cancers (Leitzmann, 2014). One of the
Vegetarianism is a custom practiced in six out of the seven continents and has become more popular over the years. Vegetarianism can be defined as the exclusion of animal products such as meat and fish from one’s diet. Dairy products and eggs are often times excluded as well. Although there are many reasons one may decide to become a Vegetarian or follow such a code of ethics, the most common include: moral, religious or health reasons.

In the short story of Margaret Lundberg ‘’Eating Green’’ Margaret has grown up being a vegetarian because her mother fed up with healthy foods, that included vegies in her meal and plain yogurt for breakfast. As the time passed by, she became a mother and transported a vegetarian diet to her family as well as she was accustomed to its lifestyle.

These articles all give readers the background and context to see what the author is referring to if the reader needs more clarification.
Being Well” you can infer that the audience is to meat eaters. David Katz spent most of the article expressing how eating meat is unethical. In paragraph 14, he explains that animals killing other animals, and people killing animals is not the same. He calls it “silly” to believe that. Furthermore, if you keep reading the passage, he explains how it cannot be unethical if animals kill each other, and it cannot be unethical if humans killed animals in past history. Katz does not support his view on the debate by stating that back then it was okay to eat meat and get the protein it supplies, but now it is

The argument under analysis is a Wall Street Journal article titled “Would We Be Healthier with a Vegan Diet?” The article divulges of the argument, is a vegan diet better for you. The first side explained in the article is for vegan diets, entitled, Yes: Cut Animal-Based Protein By Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Dr. Campbell is a professor of nutritional sciences at Cornell University and co-author of "The China Study. With the opposing view being presented by Dr. Nancy Rodriguez, Nancy Rodriguez is a professor of nutritional sciences at the University of Connecticut .which is entitled No, presents the other side of the argument: It’s a Balance.

In this section, I will explain Peter Singer’s first argument, starting with the first premise, then the second premise, and then the conclusion. Peter Singer’s first argument for vegetarianism is as follows:
It was “Bio-Printing Human Parts Will Spark Ethical, Regulatory Debate” by Lucas Mearian. In this article, Mearian introduces the debate that will take place over the issue of 3D printing human organs. He points out that vast sums of money will be lost because of theft of intellectual property. He also states that ethics and morals will be put into question when 3D printing advances. Even though these problems are brought up, he reports that bio-printing will help humanity because it will help decrease the need for donor organs. Just as the last article, this article has some points that are believable and some that are doubtful. One believable example is when Mearian notes that when the bio-printing technology becomes bigger, there will be a call to ban it from use. This is believable because he predicts that billions of dollars a year will be lost due to intellectual property theft. A statement that I found to be doubtful was where the author says that there will be a political debate over this issue. He mentions it once and never brings it up again in the article. I admit that this article was a bit tough to work with because it provided very little information that wasn’t already said in the article. I learned that next time I should probably look through more articles before I settle on the ones I will use. But, this was the only major problem that I faced as I waded through the writing
