Nowadays, human beings are faced with an unprecedented rise in diet-related chronic diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, several cancers, and the list could go on. Under this circumstance, some people, unsurprisingly, contend it is the government’s inaction to promote healthy dietary patterns that is to blame. From my point of view, I agree with them. This perspective will be explored in the following paragraphs.
Firstly, the society is currently flooded with all kinds of health conspiracies, while law enforcement agencies are taking an unbearably slow action to stop them. At the individual level, healthy dietary choices and habits are strongly influenced by what people read about on social media, fake news included, which is supposed to be forbidden in the first place. For instance, although the inventor of the alkaline diet notion has been arrested and convicted in the US, his alternative medicine books are still displayed in bookstores in China. A large number of cancer patients have already foregone traditional medicine treatment and passed away due to his theory, yet the Chinese government has not done anything to stop this potentially lethal food rumor.
Besides, the authorities fail to ensure that students have enough access to healthy eating knowledge. Generally speaking, the reason why adults cannot cultivate positive dietary habits can be largely attributed to their lack of exposure to relevant knowledge in the early age. My parents are a case in point. My mom enjoys high-temperature foods and beverages and insists on doing so even after I told her multiple times that they might cause esophageal cancer. She was barely told to take healthy eating seriously in school and therefore never pays attention to it after growing up. It is much more difficult to change an adult’s mind than to educate a child.
Admittedly, the government has initiated many campaigns to raise awareness of the significance of eating healthily, for example, by providing free nutritious food in school canteens. However, it cannot be denied that there is still a lot of room for improvement. Take a recent news for instance. The free meals in primary schools turned out to be made of substandard ingredients. The intention is good, but the execution is really poor.
In a word, the government still has a lot to do to enhance people’s understanding of how to lead a healthy life through daily meals, and they may probably start by eliminating eating rumors and teaching more courses about health in school.
In this day and age, the topic of health andfood has been in the spotlight. However, there are still some people failing torealize the significance of a balanced and healthy diet. In this case,governments are expected to take action. From my perspective, governments arenot doing enough to instill the importance of good nutrition and healthy eatinginto people’s minds.
First, governments have underestimated theapproach of teaching the public stress on a well-balanced eating. To be morespecific, with the advanced Internet technology today, everyone can playhis/her role in expressing their opinions of nutrition and eating, which, tosome extent, contributes to publicizing relevant knowledge. At this point, thegovernment may consider it advisable and claim that there is no need for it totake measures. What is more, behind this explanation lies a possibility thatthe authorities treat the goal of raising people’s awareness of heathy eatingless lucrative. Nevertheless, in fact, the government does not realize thatmany have conveyed false or misleading information online, which would haverepercussions on the whole society. Just imagine a familiar scene in ourday-to-day life: our friend refuses to eat a certain type of meat for itsso-called downside on the Internet. The meat, however, goes a long way towardsproviding necessary protein for our body. To avoid such a case to happen again,though individuals may play a part, it is the government that can tackle thisproblem most completely.
Also, leading people to emphasize healthyeating is not urgent, meaning that the government will not invest too much init. Obviously, for governments, helping citizens value a healthy diet pales incomparison with addressing other more pressing livelihood issues. Meanwhile,educating the public to accept a favorable eating style requires a large amountof funding. Conceivably, with certain budget, the authorities prefer givingpriority to those urgent ones. It explains why governments do not perform wellin this respect.
Conclusively, from where I stand, topublicize the importance of nutrition and a healthy diet among people meritsgovernments’ enough attention. Governments are still expected to channel moreinto this issue. To embrace a rosy future with people considering awell-balanced eating vital, we still have a long way to go.
