(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Advocate

Advocate: I think it has both advantages and disadvantages and whether it is good or bad all depends on people’s point of view.
(主張:長所と短所両方あり、良いか悪いかは人による)

Why?

長所について

@: there are a lot of convenient foods available such as instant foods.
(インスタント食品など便利な食品が増えた)

短所について

A: our eating habits and life style become more Europeanized or Americanized.
(食生活やライフスタイルが欧米化している(結果、肥満に悩む人が増えている))

良いか悪いかについて

B: it all depends on people
(人による)

As for people who don’t want to spend time on eating and cannot see the advantages of longevity, it is good.
(食事に時間をかけるのが好きでなく、長生きしたいと思わない人にとっては良い)

When it comes to people who want to enjoy a long healthy life and like to eat, it is bad.
(食事が好きで、長生きしたい人にとっては悪い)

there are many people who keep Japanese conventional eating habits and as for them, it is neither good nor bad.
(従来の日本の食事を保ち続けてる人にとっては、一般的日本人の食生活が変化は良くも悪くもない)
