This poster is talking about children obesity issue, what do you think about children’ body condition, are they overweight or all right, according to research, if you think they are all right, you are the same as most of parents in American.
Moreover, I have watched one news from Daily mail in the United States, an 11 years old boy who has overweight and his parents has been arrested on a child abuse trial. From my point of view I did not feel shocked when I saw this news because I think parents have responsible to keep their kids healthy and this action is right to arrest parent for abuse in such extreme case.
This poster is about Anti-Fast Food Posters, fast food this word was known in 1950s in American, which means to serve people food by very quick way. And also served to customers in the packaged form for take away, however, fast food chains have been disputes over their definition and classification. They also cause healthy disease, alleged animal cruelty, employees exploitation ect.
From the poster, I think this is a great concept and photography; however, even the fast food is not good, I think the word “shit” does not make people have strong response and also does not make message stronger. The great concept I don’t think its need swearing to amplify the content. Not a fan of the typography either.
This photo is showing us one girl is smoking saccharin，and the pill bottles scatter on the table, In fact, she does not use a lot illegally obtained drug, but junk food is the easiest thing to addictive as any drug pills. This girl is inundated is perfectly legal by fast food.
Fast food, I think it also can be treated as drug, because it also can make people deadly that compare with any pills. Moreover, this also is one of the reason, how can people who are obesity killed by junk food.
The people deaths from obesity now, more than people deaths in starvation all around the world, and from this poster I worry about the generation healthy in the future.
From this image, I can see two ladies stood together, one with healthy body, and the other with bloated body, many different words around their bodies, also from these words, can also reflect the inside the idea from people in social. Overweight and obesity are popular and serious issues in the social consequences. Usually, people who have overweight and obese are always target of bias and stigma in different areas.
For example, people who get overweight have more negative evaluation, such as lazy, Less competent, Lack of self-control, Response is slow etc, On the contrary, people who has healthy body, Usually get a positive evaluation, such as sunshine, confident, Strong self-discipline ect.
From this advertising, I can see designer use handwriting with ketchup, ‘ you are what you eat’, then after seeing this, I stop eating my cookie, I think this advertising affect me very deeply, I think I need to manage my life turns to become better.
Firstly, I found that, I make myself eat the wrong food, and now I need to eat healthy food, otherwise I will get over weight, and I won’t give myself excuses, acting now, people need to change their life before the bad behavior changes us. It will be too late if we get disease from obesity.
This poster is talking about breastfeeding, Slogan is: ‘ your child eats what you eat’, this poster design which from Brazil’s Pediatric Society of Rio Grande (SPRS). They are trying to tell new mother, they need to eat more healthy food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables rather than junk food. They said they will do it but they already start eating junk food when they are pregnant.
I think all the new mothers have responsible to keep eating healthy food, when they are pregnant, they should not eat something that just make themselves happy and comfortable, and their babies toward a lifetime of obesity.
This photo is talking about one lady, She put lost dog revelation post in the side of the wall， but her puppy is Sandwiched between her hips， This is a humorous comic, But behind this comic as we can see the obesity can make people get so many trouble in their daily life, People tend to ignore their health issues, maybe one day, their health problem will also bring problem to their family members and the people around them.
I have seen this new from the telegraph in UK, this news is talking about Extra legroom could become a legal right on US planes, As Phil Bloomfield points out, if increase the space between seats, it will decrease the number of the seats in airplane, The subsequent, it also will decrease the average revenue of each airplane. So all the airlines will increase each seat cost to offset the extra cost.
However, I think when we have travel by taking airplane, comfortable safety both are the most important part. I have heard one funny thing from my uncle, he lives in New York with his family, when they went to travel one time with my aunt by airplane, the airline charged him more money than my aunt, the reason is he is obesity, it will cost more compare with another people in airplane, on the other hand, they also decrease the cost from my aunt because she has healthy body.
This news similar as the last news I have seen from the magazine, Heavy airline passengers should pay more, suggests proposed pay-as-you-weigh scheme, Norwegian academic suggest that, airline in the future can charge more money from passengers who have obesity.
I think this suggest is good because people passengers spend same price to buy the ticket they should enjoy the same treatment, if people who have obesity siting around them, they may feel discomfort during the journey. This is not discrimination; I think every consumer has the right and obligation to enjoy the trip when they spend the same money.
This is advertising from Turkey designer who create this poster, he Hope that people can begin to Attach importance to obesity issue. He created button as football in shirt, the buttonhole is a people who get obesity, this shirt design can always remind people when they are getting fat, it also means, when they get fatter, the people who in the buttonhole can not play the football.
