Write a research paper on the eating habits in America and the effect of those habits on American health.

Michael Moss suggests that major food companies are actively working to get Americans “hooked on foods that are convenient and inexpensive” though they are aware that these foods are not healthy. He blames them for the health problems that are “spiraling out of control” such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension. Is he right?

Michael Moss is mistaken because he overlooks ________________________________.
Michael Moss’s claim that __________________________ rests upon the questionable assumption that ______________________________.
Michael Moss is surely right about ____________________ because recent studies have shown that ________________________________.
Michael Moss is right that ________________________, but he seems on more dubious ground when he claims that ____________________________.
While Michael Moss is wrong when he claims that __________________________, he is right that ______________________________.
