Food choices are among the highest number of choices people have to make in a day. For instance, people have to eat on a daily basis and everyone has a different way of arriving at his or her choice of food. There are those who prefer tests more than the nutritional benefits and there are those who prefer the health benefits (McCarthy, Bolanos, and McCarthy, 2017). Therefore in this paper, the Article by McCarthy regarding food choices will be analyzed.
The article’s information in the article is evidenced by research, therefore, validating every argument brought about by the author. The article analyzes the motivation that people have that makes them choose certain foods more than others. The author uses information that was collected by the National adult Nutrition survey thus making it more transparent and unbiased. Logical fallacies are errors in reasoning. The author of the article uses clear language that addresses her point in a clear and precise manner. All the arguments in the article are straight to the point and do not lead to ambiguous statements that could otherwise confuse the audience.
The author applies some rhetorical devices that have the purpose of making her audience memorize her main arguments. For instance, the word “food choices” is used in the article more than 2 making the reader memorize it since he or she read it more than twice in the paper (McCarthy, Bolanos, and McCarthy, 2017). The author uses only repetition in her article to stress her point.
From the analysis above, it is evident that the article is simple and clear for everyone to understand. The author does not use fallacies language that could render the whole article ambiguous and impossible to understand. Additionally, the arguments in the article are supported by evidence from research regarding the same. Therefore this makes the article a good choice to be included in the paper as it is simple to understand and its arguments are supported by evidence from an unbiased research
