It does explain why people are unhealthy. What do you feel is the main problem and the more important one to address.(RN)
Yes it does answer the question but the only question I am left with is why do the food companies fool us into thinking that food will be healthy when we eat it? (JM)

Does the writer establish that the problem exists and that we should care about it? What is missing?
Yes a problem is established but could go into more detail on why we should care about it for example go into some of the risks of being unhealthy.(RN)
Yes the problem is established but he needs to take a side on this topic, give us some main arguing points that we can take our own sides on as readers. (JM)

What seem to be the main points of the argument?
There are many serious health issues and doing what are causing those health issues.(RN)
The main points are the serious health risks that come along with over eating and other problems with the consumption of food in the U.S. (JM)
