NUTR 1322 Basic Nutrition Discussion Post 1

I am sure that many individuals have seen the advertisement of green coffee as the product that is supposed to help people lose weight, improve their digestion, regulate blood sugar, improve blood pressure, help with chronic conditions, have anti-aging effects, and even prevent cancer. Green coffee has been promoted as a natural and powerful substance that treats if not every then at least quiet a number of conditions in a relatively short amount of time. While many realize that no product alone can be that good, many still believe that green coffee bean consumption can help with practically all their health problems in a natural and safe way (Debruyne et al., 2016). The reason why some individuals may be susceptible to believe that green coffee can do wonders is the advertisement of the product skillfully appeals to people’s wishes and desires to be young, healthy, and strong. This need for specific outcomes is what makes people more likely to believe and accept that some product may be a panacea drug or a cure for all their problems.

Dear Sally, thank you for your post! I found your discussion to be very informative and interesting. I agree with your argument that many products are advertised in such a way that they seem “too good to be true” (DeBruyne et al., 2016). Unfortunately, many people are susceptible to such claims, because they want to believe that there exists some almost magical solution to all their problems. The advertisers use these wishes of people to be healthy and strong, appealing to their desires to achieve well-being in a relatively short period of time. I think one of the answers to this problem is to educate the general public about how to conduct research about products so they can make informed decisions about their health and wellness.

Hello Brian, thank you for your post! I found your discussion to be very interesting. I agree with your argument that we encounter many advertisements these days that can be considered nutritional quackery (DeBruyne et al., 2016). Unfortunately, many people are susceptible to this, because the advertisements are framed in such a way that they resonate with people’s desires and wishes. Instead of trying to conduct research and read actual facts about certain products, they believe the misinformation that is being promoted in an attempt to find a quick solution to their health problems. This is why I believe education should be provided to the general public to teach us to make wise choices when it comes to our nutrition and health.
