Inspired by the acclaimed Opposing Viewpoints series, Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints promotes issue awareness and critical thinking by placing a wide range of expert opinions in a unique pro/con format. Even more accessible than its parent series, it offers a wealth of information at a lower reading level, in a bright, engaging package that helps more students grasp the controversies of our increasingly complex world.
This title explores fast food, the impact of its growing popularity on public health, and what, if anything, should be done about it. Discussions include the connections between fast food, obesity, and disease; the regulation of fast food restaurants by zoning or taxation; and controls on the marketing of fast food such as limiting children's exposure to advertisements and requiring the disclosure of nutrition information.
"The titles in this series will be useful for students studying debate topics or researching for papers. It also teaches the valuable lesson that there are two (or more) sides to every issue."
