From Twizzlers to Sour Patch Kids, red 40 is a dye in all kinds of processed foods. Contrary to its attractive color, the dye isnt as fun as people think. Red 40 can cause many health and medical problems, even heightening symptoms of ADHD. Red 40 and other toxic food dyes must be better regulated and processed before being presented to consumers to mitigate risks to public health.

Having kids constantly in front of screens is already bad as it is in schools, it provides all kinds of concentration problems for kids, but the use of screens in parenting has become even more of a severe issue.

My Life With the Walter Boys is yet another example of a badly written show with poor character development; but sadly enough, its not the only one of its kind. Romance as of late in shows has turned into a bad apple, with many shows relying on conflicts between characters rather than character development. With many shows relying on conflict and awkward situations, even the outside perspective of romance in daily life has taken a turn into having weird expectations on romantic relationships and how they should be developed. Romance shows now have become less about the characters, and more on the shallowness and half-hearted dialogue of the actors.

The male ignorance online of gender equality problems and dilemmas has shown more in media. From documentaries speculating on gender as well as podcasts, many of the males are shown to be unaware of many of the problems that arise with gender equality, and also shown an insensitivity to sexism. Some men even deny any need for change in gender equality entirely, and other types of online entertainment reflect many of these ideals that portray the ‘ignorance’ of the online male mindset and show a lack of respect and awareness.

Physician-assisted death, a practice dating back to Ancient Greek and Roman times, has faced scrutiny throughout history. By playing a role in a patient’s death, the process seems to contradict core medical values of treatment and care. The unconventional nature of the procedure blurs the line between patient well-being and autonomy when medical and ethical values come to light. As physicians grapple with a battle between medical ethics and morality, patients are left to question their remaining independence at the end of their lives.
