Causal Argument Peer Review Ryan Newhouse

This argument does answer the question, "why does this happen?." The main question that I have after reading this is what is holding this people back from starting to eat right and get healthy?
Yes he does establish the problem and the main thing is just the other side of being obese and the struggles it has on the mental state along with the physical state.
The main points are alcohol and the different things that make being an obese person harmful to yourself.
You need to say what side you are on, I mean I know but you should just come out and say it. There isn't much of an opposing side but still talk about the mental barriers that obese people have to beat by themselves.
This is a very popular topic in today's world so I always find information like this to be interesting.
The greatest weakness is that this argument does pick a side completely, I know what way he is leaning but right now he is currently just giving the facts about a problem in today's world.
The greatest strength is that he has the facts on his side. He could sit here and name facts for a long time, that only strengthens the argument as long as you do not overuse them in unnecessary amounts. JM

Does the writer establish that the problem exists and that we should care about it? What is missing? Yes he makes she to inform the reasons why there is a higher population of obese people in the world. The only thing that it is missing is that it could use a little more detail.
