Zinczenko, David, and Matt Goulding. "8 Ingredients You Never Want to See on Your Nutrition Label." Yahoo Health. Yahoo Health. N.p., 23 Aug. 2012. Web. 09 Feb. 2014.

The argument of this article is that people should be looking at the label of the food that they eat. The point of this article is to try to inform people of what they should be looking for when they are reading the food labels. In the article it talks about these eight different things and if they are in your product you should not be eating those foods. This article is full of information about these eight different this that if they are in you food you should not be putting them into you because of the effects that it can have on your body. These eight ingredients are BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), Paraben's, Partially Hydrogenated Oil, Sodium Nitrite, Caramel Coloring, Castoreum, Food Dyes, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein.

This source seems to be useful. When looking at this source comparing to the other sources that I am using is above average, it has good and different information. When looking at if this is a bias or objective article I would have to say that it is a objective article. I feel this way because in the article when he is talking about the eight this you don't want to see on your food labels he makes sure to add facts to back up why you shouldn't put them in your body. The author is just trying to inform people to make sure to look at the food labels of the food that they are going to eat so they know what they are putting into their body.

This is a source that is something that will be a very help source for me. The article is a good length with some interesting information that will become helpful when supporting my side of the argument. I am going to be able to use this source in my project as a supporting topic for the main idea which is that all people should be reading food labels. This article had information that just reinforced the way I was thinking.
I just want to know if my my citations are correct.

Feature, Peter JaretWebMD. "Food Label Ingredients: How to Look for MSG, Trans Fat, and More." WebMD. WebMD, n.d. Web. 09 Feb. 2014.

This article argues was that when foods say that they are healthy for you that they have something hidden in them,such as whole grains that they have more sugar. The point of this article is to inform you that if something sounds like it should be in a chemistry lab than you should probably not be eating it. It is covering all of the things that would want to be looking for on the label to see if it not good for you. If you are trying to figure out what is in the food you are eating you should look at the ingredients list, the ones that matter are the first two or three on the list that is because those are the most important.

This seems to be a useful source. Web MD is a good source to go by it has a lot of the same information that the Yahoo Health with just a few different things added in. It is also a good source to look at because it is updated and revised to make sure that it has the newest and most up to date information. This is a reliable source it is written and edited by doctors who study these kinds of things. With this being a source that is written and edited by doctors it is objective, it is supported with facts that people have studied. The author made sure to put in things that people were able to relate to so it made better sense and was able to apply it to their everyday life.

I would have to say that yes this was a helpful source for me even tho that it says the same thing as another source that I have it makes it so I know that the information is valid. Having it be the same information as another source with a few extra things added makes it so that I can use it as a good supporter for my argument. This was just another source to support what I already thought we should be doing.
