In New York City, 58 percent of adults—over three million people – are overweight or obese” (Jones).
Annotation: This article written by David R. Jones is coming from the New York Amsterdam News and it talks about soft drinks and how they can be purchased with food stamps. This article helps me a lot with my research topic because I can know the government position, in this case New York who asked for a waiver to prevent the purchase of soft drinks with food stamps, but it wasn’t approved. If you let the citizens the freedom to buy soft drinks with their food stamps is contributing to the obesity problems we already have. Food Stamps are funds given to families so they can get the food and everything they need. If families are allowed to buy soft drinks with their food stamps, it is definitely like inviting them to become part of the already large obese community of the United States. That needs to stop, there should be some restrictions about what kind of food and beverages can be purchase with the food stamps funds. This article will guide me to another point in my research paper in which I can get deeper later by investigating a little bit more.
