The recourse is difficult to classify as either primary or secondary. To a great extent it falls on both categories. This is because, the resource provides extensive analysis and statistical data on sodas, consumptions, sugar(s) problem, and health impacts on the soda drinkers (Nestle, 2015). This indicates a direct correlation between drinking sodas and extensive health risks. The analysis by Marion Nestle is adopted from diverse sources including health databases, soda consumption rates, marketing, and distribution companies across the globe. This forms a compilation of vast data. Thus, posit its classification as a secondary source.
The research is from a scholarly publication as it is supported by extensive supportive evidence and scientific data on sodas, sugars, consumption, and health impacts. For example, the claim or thesis on the unsafety impact of sodas is supported by the clear indication of the numerous health problems it creates. Hence, it is empirically supported by evidence-based research.
The author, Marion Nestle is a Paulette Goddard professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at the New York University. This makes the author to be a highly qualified scholar, academician, and expert in the field (Nestle, 2015). Writing the book provides key insights on the health dangers presented by consumption of sodas especially among children, minorities and the poor, and exposure of tactics used by big soda companies to continue ravaging every corner of the world. The emphasis on health risks is a profound insight to caution policy makers and individuals of the dangers of consuming sodas and sugars. Therefore, the resource is highly credible and insightful on the subject matter.
