A good case in point is the misunderstanding on high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) ( Peeke, 2011). In this case, the author advocates for proper analysis of information available to the consumers to avoid consumer confusion.

A good example is how she refers sweeteners to as “the devil’s candy” ( Peeke, 2011). This strategy easily brings out the effects of these sweeteners to its consumers. These strategies create a more effective argument as the author explains the intensity of the problem at hand, as well as convinces the reader to analyze the information presented to them on the various forms of media.
