Answer the following questions and summarize 5 pages total.

Relate the information in the video and article to addiction in general. 

  • Why is it so easy for some to resist addiction and difficult for others? (use your text and other sources). How do food manufacturers use additives to disguise and enhance tastes? Is there a fault with the food industry similar to the tobacco industry? 
  • Explain how sugar and processed food triggers the same parts of our brain as other addictive substances such as cocaine and nicotine. 
  •  How can a person deal with food or sugar addiction? Is it the same as drug addiction? Why or why not?
  •  Describe how this topic and the research you found resonated with you or what information you learned you previously did not know? How will this information impact your life going forward?

     Summarize in one page. Use the text, other sources besides the video and article. 

 Total 5 pages

Dont forget to cite your sources. APA or MLA (Make sure they are from reputable sources). Your citations of websites and articles within should be formatted correctly. Include the YouTube video in your references. Go to the LRC website and you will find instructions for citing an article found on a website and citing content found on a website. Do this correctly as it is worth 10pts out of the total.

Your paper should be in the following format:

  • Your reference page must include at least 5 sources (you should have the YouTube video, the article and your text should as 3 of the sources) This page does not count toward the 5 pages.
  • 1-inch margins, 12pt font, and double spaced.

5 pages total not counting your reference page. You must use your text as one of the references.
