1 Checkpoint: Argument Credibility In recent years the fast food industry has come under fire for providing increasingly unhealthy meals without disclosure. Health officials, Senators, and Government agencies alike have gotten in on the fervent action. This article explains how one California County is fighting back. Restaurants like McDonalds prey on children using marketing campaigns that include toys in order to pump out their product. It is not well known, but a “Happy Meal” can contain over 485 calories! The fat, sodium, and sugar levels are astronomically high as well. In Santa Clara County; supervisors have passed a vote 3-2 which bans the placement of toys in any meal that exceeds a set amount of calories (485), salt (600 mg.), fat (35% of calories), and sugar (10% of calories). Toy giveaways (optional with single item purchases) are being restricted too.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
